Dayananda Sagar College takes the cake

Bangalore: Sept 9 , 2012 DH News Service

The biggest fashion event in the City came to a close on Saturday with the grand finale of the Metrolife Fashion Show.


Nine colleges — the teams that had qualified during the preliminary rounds — came together to battle it out on the ramp for the top position. The designs were chicer, the clothes hotter and the music even more energetic than before.

A host of cutting-edge trends took over the ramp, proving that Bangalore’s colleges are definitely high on style.


The colleges which qualified for the finals were CMRIT, Jyoti Nivas College, Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering, Acharya Institute of Technology, Surana Degree College, Vogue Institute of Fashion and Technology, Mount Carmel College, M S Ramaiah College of Arts, Science and Commerce, and Garden City College.

Each team had to follow a theme for their creative round — Colours of Metrolife — and had to model the clothes of a particular brand after that. The colleges interpreted the theme in their own ways, with many of them going for chic, urban collections with neon colours and trendy accessories.

The show was judged by some of the top names in the City’s fashion industry — designers Manoviraj Khosla, Prasad Bidapa and Sanchita Ajjampur as well as Sandalwood actress Niveditha. The energy levels for the evening were upped by some fantastic performances. Percussion project Thalavattam impressed with their neon, carnival-esque display, while Welwet Rose, a rock band, also performed. Dance teams from Dayananda Sagar Institutions and Mount Carmel College entertained with their fast-paced numbers.


Each college team pitched in their best to display some of the hottest couture in the City. The boys from Acharya Institute of Technology went for a varied collection, showcasing looks which were both dapper and trendy.


The team from Jyoti Nivas College looked pretty in a multi-coloured ensemble and colleges like Vogue Institute of Fashion and Technology, Mount Carmel College and Garden City College made quite a positive impression as well. Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering went for a sequinned collection, while Surana Degree College opted for floral gowns and bright trousers.


In the second round, the colleges modelled the outfits of different brands. The students from CMRIT modelled for ‘People’, Jyoti Nivas College modelled outfits from ‘Only Jia’ and Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering modelled for ‘In Mark’. The boys from Acharya Institute of Technology modelled clothes from ‘John Players’ and Surana Degree College for ‘Brand Factory’. Brands like Flying Machine, Kalanjali, Pantaloons and Avirate were also featured.


Ultimately, Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering walked away with the first prize - a whopping one lakh rupees worth of gift vouchers, while Mount Carmel College came a close second. Vogue Institute of Fashion and Technology came third with their innovative, urban theme.


Jeffery Ponappa from Acharya Institute of Technology won the prize for the best male model and Rhea  from Mount Carmel College was selected as the best female model. Jyoti Nivas College and Surana Degree College both won consolation prizes, too.
