The students of the Indian Academy College couldn’t have asked for more fun.
Their annual fest, ‘Spectrum’ that was held on campus recently, saw the students participate in large numbers.

Classes were suspended and the students were given time to rehearse for the big day.
And they did put up a pretty impressive show during the on-stage and off-stage events.
The off stage events included pencil sketching, pot painting, vegetable
carving, cooking without fire, face painting and bridal make-up.

The students came up with various themes in funky styles and other random
topics.This fest had not less than 30 odd events — covering almost all spheres such as fashion, music and dance.

   The college also has a sizeable number of international students on campus.
The event began with a welcome dance and this was followed by a formal inauguration by T Bharathi, secretary IAET.

The floor was then thrown open for various cultural activities such as group dance, solo dance, group and solo singing and folk dance.The dances include free style, street dance, classical and western dances.

However, the highlight of the event was the fashion show which was most popular with the students.

There were five teams selected for the final round of fashion show. “The competition was a close one and we had a tough time selecting the best team. The teams were very close and very professional,” said Adil, one of the judges and a fashion designer.

The themes that the students picked for the fashion show were an interesting mix of classic, contemporary and modern.

One of the teams chose to showcase paper garments by weaving dresses from waste paper. Another team chose, ‘roman and western drapes’. Talking more about the theme, first semester BCom student Mohammed Muzammil said, “We basically selected this theme because of the concept of recycling and making use of waste paper and fabric.

We have used all types of paper and fabric for the show. The mood and inspiration is funky and royal.” Saif Ali Khan, a third semester BCom student explained, “Walking the ramp was very exciting and we were proud to be reusing the waste papers.”  Another team chose ‘Arabian Nights.’ 

Afshan, a fifth semester student said that fest gave them an opportunity to showcase their talent. Aqib Faraz, another fifth semester student said, “We were inspired by the movies of an era gone by. We portrayed a Greek warrior and it gave me a high at
some point.”

The first prize went to Arif and group, the second prize went to Poonam and group and the third place was bagged by Afshan and group.
