Vision Board – Color Trends AI Aqua – FIDA

Fashion Design Course

As we move into a more tech-inspired lifestyle each year, we are also moving into a mindset of incorporating technology into everything. A bold color with a digital vibe to it – A.I. Aqua. It is seen prominently in the tech industry and is already making appearances in the fashion and interior world.

Colors have their own way to play with our minds. Blue tones have always been associated with calmness and focus. A lot of major global companies have used blue as their brand color successfully. A.I. Aqua has a digital affinity like no other color. It emotes positivity and has a futuristic appeal. This tone of blue is really stylish and very marketable.

Vision Board Ideas for A.I. Aqua:

  • This color is multifaceted in its utility. Think of flowy, iridescent materials to give your garments that future forward look.

  • Use a tonal/color contrast or textural contrast to add another dimension in your interior designs. Usage of raw and rustic materials will also add another layer of contrast to the overall product.

FIDA Recommends: You can try repurposing old fabrics and clothes to restitch them into something new. You could also try a wardrobe swap with your best friend and create new outfits!

  • Masked Elegance

Now that face masks have become the new normal we might as well embrace it in style. You can opt for hand painted, embroidered, embellished, quirky prints or even diy and stitch one at home.

FIDA Recommends: Use your mask not just for safety but as a fashion accessory, think about co-ordinating the color/print of your mask with your outfit or maybe go for a contrast to add a pop of color.

  • Loungewear

Whoever said loungewear is just for home? While most of us are all working from home, those who have started going back to their offices find it difficult to slip back into smart casuals and feel comfortable throughout the day. For all such people – try to incorporate your loungewear into your everyday work wear. 

FIDA Recommends: Be smart with your choices, your satin sleep shirt paired with classy slacks can go from being a regular outfit to a smart yet comfortable one.

In conclusion, you are your own style icon. Always choose comfort and class over trendy and something that’s just not you!

Vision Board – Minimalism in Design – FIDA

I beg to differ from the definition above. Minimalism is not just the lack of something, on the contrary it is the presence of clarity and structure in design. There are lots of things that come to mind when one talks about ‘Minimal Design’, but what really is minimalism in its true sense? Let’s explore a few aspects of minimalism before we come back to analysing the definition.

  • Simple designs that support functionality
  • Clean and structured
  • Muted color palettes
  • Natural elements and resources that go back to the basics.
  • Reinventing what exists into something that has a pleasing aesthetic

As a creative person, one needs to realise that minimalism cant have boundaries and definitions. It’s simply a form of design that is focussed on function. And this trend has had a major impact on how we perceive design in both fashion and interior worlds.

Vision Board Ideas for Minimal Design:

  • Silhouettes – Create clean, immaculate and sharp silhouettes that contribute to the overall aesthetic for interior design. On the other hand, fashion gives the liberty of choosing asymmetrical and unusual silhouettes and still make it look minimal and simple.

  • Minimalism in Design
  • Color, color what color do you choose? – Opt for muted palettes and neutral colors with a few contrasts by adding slight pops of color. Minimalism in Design
  • Textural difference – Choosing the right material is vital. This can make or break your entire aesthetic. Learn all about textures and the right way to use them here (add link of this blog when uploading)Fashion Design Course
  • Layer away –  Don’t hesitate to layer up a bit. Layers when done rightly add a structured definition to designs and elevate spaces. Fashion Design Course

Fashion Design Course

Above all minimalism, in its true form, is nothing but absence of excess clutter and chaos in a manner that elevates design and enhances the raw nature of elements and spaces. We must remember that while exploring new and relatively modern styles we should respect the natural beauty of elements as it is.

Vision Board – Evoke all senses by textural design – FIDA

We believe in what we see, we remember what we feel or touch, we are attracted to certain scents. Modern design; fashion and interior; is all about creating experiences that one does not forget easily. Texture is one of the elements of design that elevates this sensory experience.

Whilst textures can be classified into various categories, the most basic ones are:

  • Rough
  • Smooth
  • Glossy
  • Matte

Vision Board Ideas for Texture:

  • If you cant make it, fake it: wallpapers
  • All things paint: 3d, glossy, lacquered,zinc
  • Drape it away: Lush Velvet and satins for clothes
  • upholstery on the walls for interior
  • Raw and Unfiltered
  • Marble
  • Color Block for visual texture
  • Layer it up

Use the basic elements of design to your highest advantage and always believe in creating experiences that last a lifetime.  For more such content follow FIDA- The Design School on Facebook and Instagram.

An Industrial visit by our Interior Designing aspirants


We have visited a site which was under construction and has said to write a report on it.


  • To gain experience in building material science.
  • To develop a report writing skills.
  • To understand practical site challenges


 NAME:   Adobe Apartment

 TYPE OF  BUILDING: Low Rise Residential Complex.


The main reason for choosing the site is for the observation process and to see the theoretical knowledge being fitted in practice is that this construction site was implementing all the theory we have gone through the stage.


  • Since the site was next to “koovam” river, the soil bearing capacity is low so Raft foundation was chosen.
  • The construction of the building foundation was almost completed.
  •  Since it rained, the water stagnated on the site was a good advantage, they need not have to do the curing process and jump to the next process of construction which consumed less time.
  • Due to rain, the construction sand was damp and a lot of wastage due to erosion had occurred.
  •  Since it is a dead end, the area is calm, which is an idle place for residence.
  •  The unique point of the apartment is that it has the separate terrace for all the four flat.
  • The USP of the apartment is that it has 5 schools in the 1km radius.
