Speaking at the event, Arindam Sil said: "A lot of my films have an association with the fashion brand, Glamour, including my last film, ‘Jongole Mitin Mashi’. This institute is seriously dedicated to vocational training among the youth.

"Gone are the days where we were told to pursue traditional fields, fashion is here to stay and it’s great that Glamour is helping those serious about pursuing this profession to be updated with the changing times. As a filmmaker, we are always in the hunt for skilled fashion professionals who can bring life to our scripts, I hope we see many more coming out of Glamour Institute of Fashion"

"Glamour and I go a long way back, right from my modelling days and I’m happy to be a part of their new initiative which gives back to the society and more importantly focuses on empowering women with the skill to excel in this industry," says Sauraseni Maitra.

"Glamour has been doing a fabulous job in the last ten years in promoting fashion in this state. Bringing in cutting edge tools and training the youth with the necessary skill sets.

Fashion across the world is exploding and changing rapidly, and it is important that students are able to get formal training to adapt to these changes. I hope this institute helps in creating great designer minds that create great fashion”, adds Babul Supriyo, who is the West Bengal Minister of IT and Electronics.

The institution promises to not only shape creative minds but also foster employment opportunities and empowerment.

Reema Mondal, Founder, Glamour Institute of Fashion, expressed her vision by stating, "As our organisation Glamour Designer Boutique completes 10 years, we are now foraying into the education of fashion designing. The fashion industry of our country is witnessing exponential growth and for that we need trained youngsters who are ready to be a part of this growth journey."
