The Aisa Intensive is focused on the three main aspects of fashion industry relevant today:
During the Jaipur leg of the intensive, the creators will gather inspiration from the culturally vibrant streets & the historically rich monuments like Hawa Mahal, Amer Fort, Bapu Bazaar et al. Imagine viewing these larger than life monuments with a fashionable lens and a cohort of fashion professionals? They will witness a traditional embroidery tour assisted by a design house, and also have first hand experience with Bagru, Block printing and other artisans and craftsmen. Every experiential visit here is focussed towards ideation and cognitive processes.
In depth knowledge of the textile industry will be accessible to the creators which is essential to anyone wanting to make a mark in the design space. Insightful learning sessions with industry experts will help creators understanding what it takes to make it in this industry.

I feel so lucky I was a part of this because I had never imagined how I can improve in a month as a person. I love all my friends I made here and Rishabh and Sayesha. I can’t thank Gil enough to make me bring out my vision because that sort of gave me direction and I wanna keep learning, keep growing and yes I have too changed as a person and of course in a better way thank you Questerra.
Being true to yourself was what you taught me as a team. I can’t thank you enough for letting me tag along. If I write anymore I’ll cry. But thank your whole team including Sonakshi and Ankit for dealing with our tantrums. We’re a family now! So much Love!
I came into this very closed minded and I’ve left a very different person. Definitely one of the best experiences of my life.
Questerra has been the mould that I didn't even know that I was looking for. Sayesha and Rishabh thank you for being my career fairy godmother’s you’ll did much more than what you had to, you’ll have been friends, guides, confidants and more. More love and power to you both. P.S Please tell Sonakshi she is such a rock-star for standing like the strong unseen foundation! So thank You!
In Short I learnt a lot more in this one month than I did in 4 years of college thank you for bringing travel, Fashion & business all in the same package.
Loved it! Changed my life! I’ll never be the same again.
A small loving and growing family. That’s it you'll be receiving a long email soon haha.
This was my first experience with a travel company in India, after I moved here as an exchange student in Christ University, we had a lot of fun while learning various details about our subject of Art and History. We enjoyed the trip especially the manner in which the details were explained and everybody in our group of 30 was involved, Will do it again!
Fun and learning went hand in hand on out tours, we were amazed to see some fantastic companies and how the businesses are run in China. Eye openers were port operation near Guangzhou and some really huge industrial setup witnessed around China. Definitely well planned.
I’m an aspiring businessman, and wanted some serious business knowledge across industries, and thus signed up with Questerra on one of their Chinese business tours. The market knowledge, penetration into industrial areas and wholesale market of Shanghai and Wenzhou were an eye opener for me. Established contact and my first container arrived after 6 months of that trip! Thank You.
