EUROPE STUDY TRIP 2017
Jan 2017 was a game changer for Textile Institute of Pakistan. For the first time a group of 26 students along with three faculty members went for a visit to HEIMTEXTIL, the largest textile fair in Frankfurt, Germany.
The classroom study came to life with this faculty led study trip to some of the most fascinating places in Europe. The trip was planned in a way that every destination was closely tied to the academic curriculum so that the students could experience, in an immediate and tangible way, the ideas they have learnt about in books and lectures.
Exploration of innovative and sustainable textiles in Theme park, Heimtextil- Frankfurt, discussion on the marketing strategies with designers in the trade fair, an art history trip to the historical sites in Italy, a visit to the Louvre museum in Paris and learning about the famous painters and sculptors art pieces or spending a fun filled day at Disneyland in Paris.
