The IIAD family deeply mourns the loss of one its most important members – Prof. Edward Newton. An esteemed member of IIAD’s advisory board, Prof. Newton was a stalwart whose contribution to the global fashion and textile industry will forever be treasured by the Design fraternity. An academician par excellence, Prof. Newton was a sought after educator and shared his subject matter expertise at design schools across continents. He was a mentor to IIAD right from its inception and championed the cause of innovation in design education all through. A man of exceptional emotional intelligence, Prof. Newton was able to make a personal connection with everyone he met and interacted with, be it the students, the faculty or support staff. His demise has left a huge void in our hearts.
We will miss you Prof Newton. May your soul rest in eternal peace.
