1st April 2024: IMS Design and Innovation Academy (IMS DIA) revealed a transformative 30-day program aimed at empowering 100 underprivileged women with valuable skills in embroidery and stitching. As a part of IMS DIA’s CSR activities, the program is organized in collaboration with the brand “Shilpi Gupta,” and supported by the Confederation of Women Entrepreneurs India (COWE) and SIDBI (Small Industries Development Bank of India).

It is a month-long workshop that culminates on April 30th, 2024 will provide the participants with hands-on experience in various types of embroidery techniques and stitching methods. Under the guidance of IMS DIA’s expert and seasoned instructors, participants will have the opportunity to learn and master traditional as well as contemporary embroidery styles, enhancing their craft and fostering creativity.

“We are delighted to collaborate with IMS DIA and COWE for this noble initiative. At ’Shilpi Gupta,’ we are passionate about preserving traditional crafts and empowering women artisans. Through this workshop, we hope to inspire and uplift underprivileged women, enabling them to unlock their full potential,” said Shilpi Gupta, Founder of the brand ‘Shilpi Gupta.’
