Carmelites walk away with 1st prize
The second season of the Metrolife Fashion Show got off to a fabulous start at Garden City College, with some of the choicest designs hitting the ramp.
The display of colour, vibrancy, culture, and of course, sheer style, was dazzling. Thirteen colleges took to the stage to show off the hottest couture to be found on campus. And the result was worth watching.
The show was judged by Sandalwood actor Suriya, model Vibhinita Verma and designer Jason Cherian.
The evening kicked off with an energetic display by the girls of Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College, and teams from colleges like Indian Academy, St Anne’s PU College, Sindhi College, Baldwin Methodist College, IFIM, CMRIT and Mount Carmel College took forward the show with a plenty of cutting-edge creations.
The occasion witnessed many daring style statements – flowing gowns, gracefully draped togas and feathered headgear were carried off with poise. While most of the girls stuck to elegant evening wear as well as heavily worked ethnic creations, the boys impressed in their sherwanis and formal suits.
The icing on the cake was a contemporary dance performance by Spoorthi and Soorya, two students of Garden City College.
Eventually, Mount Carmel College – with their sari-centric theme – walked away with the first prize while CMR Institute of Technology came a close second. The home team from Garden City College won the third prize, dazzling the judges with their well-draped outfits that showcased the individuality of different cultures. These three teams have won places for themselves in the finals of the show, which will be held at Dayananda Sagar Institutions on September 8.
