“My fashion sense is not being flamboyant but being well-dressed. I am not a dashing fashion-oriented personality because I have to go with what suits my age. But I like to dress up smartly and well,” says the newly appointed chairperson of NIFT. The emergence of Chetan Chauhan, a former cricketer as the Chairperson of the premier National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) has been the talk of the town. He is also well-recognized for having played 40 test matches for Team India.
As per the NIFT Act 2006, the Chairperson of its Board of Governors shall be an eminent academician, scientist or technologist or professional, who is to be nominated by the Visitor, in this case, the President of India. As per the students, appointing a political personality as the chairperson of an eminent fashion institute should only generate a positive outcome in the future.
With the development of the story, he has been given three months to assess his performance as Chairman, NIFT which is fair for him to prove himself as an effective member of the alumni.
