SET for change: The khaki clothes of Chennai Corporation employees will soon be replaced with NIFT-designed uniforms.

Chennai: The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) has come up with a range of user-friendly and aesthetically designed uniforms for Chennai Corporation employees.

The Corporation had consulted the NIFT to design uniforms for employees, starting from the Corporation Commissioner to sanitary workers. The designs are almost ready, said P. Mohan Raj, NIFT course coordinator for fashion and textiles.

For sanitary workers, the NIFT designed grey uniforms that were easily washable. Instead of a regular shirt collar, the NIFT recommended a ‘mandarin’ collar that would allow sweat to easily evaporate. The full length trousers could be shortened, by folding it and fastening it with Velcro straps. The Corporation has also asked the NIFT to come up with a slogan for the Chennai Corporation and a logo that would be stitched on the uniforms.

Small paisley prints were likely to be chosen for saris for women, with mild colours for officers at a higher grade.
