Myriads of couture hit the ramp

Bangalore, Aug 25, 2012, DHNS
Jyothi Nivas College students in Gothic style walked away with the third prize.

Colour, energy and couture came together at the south zonal round of the Metrolife Fashion Show, which was held at Oxford College on Saturday.

Seventeen colleges battled it out on the ramp. And if there’s one thing they proved, it’s that the fashion quotient in the City’s colleges is flying high. The show got off on a great note, with a variety of styles and statements hitting the ramp. While some colleges went for ethnic wear, richly embroidered and in deep shades, others selected funkier, more Western collections. A myriad of textures and designs hit the ramp, with chic garments like cropped pants, ‘jodhpurs’, gowns and ruffled skirts.

Oxford College of Business Management went first, followed by the girls of Baldwin Women’s Methodist College, who showcased a collection of rich silk. The other colleges that walked the ramp included RV Institute of Management, CB Bhandari Jain College, Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, SIMC and Jyoti Nivas College, to name a few.


The celebrity judges present at the show included noted designer Paresh Lamba and pretty actresses Neettoo and Sindhu Loknath. They were visibly impressed by the cuts, styles and statements showcased by the students.

One of the highlights of the evening was a dance performance by the students of Oxford College. The number, which shifted from slow to fast-paced, was performed to a medley of hit songs like ‘Why This Kolaveri Di’.

Eventually, the first prize went to Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering, while Surana College walked away with the second prize. The third prize went to Jyoti Nivas College for their Gothic theme. These three teams will now take part in the final of the fashion show, which will be held at Dayananda Sagar Institutions on September 8.
