Vogue Institute of Fashion Technology recently gave an opportunity to its students to showcase their talents at the ‘Vogue Cheers Fun Frolic Fete’, which was held at the Apparel Park Campus.
An intra-college fest, it was spread across three days and saw students participate in various competitions like face-painting, nail art, sketching, collage-making, singing, dancing, rangoli-making, and of course, a fashion show.
Nisha Claudine, a faculty member, appreciated the willingness of the students to take part with the true spirit of competition. “It was a combination of talent and glamour that made this such a triumphant fest. The excitement and determination of the entire student fraternity was almost infectious,” says Nisha. “The hidden talents of the students surfaced beyond expectations,” she adds.
The fest was organised entirely by the students’ cultural committee. Time passed without anyone realising, with all kinds of performances happening throughout the three days — from the melodious singing and contemporary dancing to the much-anticipated fashion show.
“I participated in the fashion show, in which our team exhibited different drapes of saris. We didn’t expect it, but we won the first prize! It was the best part of the fest for me, personally,” says Teena Gaur, who is pursuing a diploma in fashion designing at the college. “This is a really good way for students to build their confidence, since it is our own friends that we have to compete with. It’s a very friendly atmosphere and there are no hard feelings from those who don’t win,” she adds.
In the eyes of the organisers too, the entire event was a grand success. “The Vogueistas came, saw and conquered the stage and ramp,” says Anncee Stephens, the cultural head of the institution.
Happy faces could be seen all around and the entire crowd seemed charged up to have some fun. “I was the host of the show and it was overwhelming because people cheered a lot. All the events saw some fabulous participation. All I can say is that it was a perfect day for entertainment and that it was great to be a part of this show,” shares Sunitha Raj, a student of interior designing.
S Devaraj, the principal of the college, was also content with the way the fest turned out, saying, “It was the team effort and collective involvement of the staff and students that materialised in this grand fest.”
