A treat for the taste buds

It’s the season of love — and the models of the ‘Mysore Mega Model Hunt’ got into the spirit of things recently, at the Swensens store in Koramangala.

The store has introduced two new flavours to celebrate this time of the year — ‘Strawberry in Love Sundaes’, which consists of strawberry and ‘Choco Love’, as well as ‘Strawberry Fantasy’. They were showcased by the models in a unique fashion show, which was curated by Prasad Bidapa with a line of couture designed specially for the occasion. During the show, these young models made the most of the spotlight.

Dressed in colours that complement the season, the models walked in with the two new flavours. To the delight of the audience, they were allowed to sample a few bites as well.

The show stoppers for the fashion show were Susheel and Aishwarya, who were the winners of the ‘Mysore Mega Model Hunt’.

“It is a great opportunity for me. Getting a chance to walk the ramp for someone who has been in the industry for a long time is a great start, I feel. Valentine’s Day is special; and the clothes that we are showcasing today go with the flavour of the season and look very bright. They are pleasing to the eye,” says Susheel The store had also been decked up for the occasion; red balloons and heart-shaped pillows were hung everywhere. The ‘Choco Love’ — which consists of a generous quantity of fresh strawberries in a huge mug filled with cream, chocolate syrup, ice cream, fresh fruits and topped with cookies — was tempting. The ‘Strawberry Fantasy’ has a combination of fresh strawberry cobbler and strawberry ice cream, served with strawberry topping and loaded with almonds. They will be on the menu this entire month.

Aishwarya, one of the show stoppers, says that she considers this opportunity to be special. “This is great exposure for all of us and I am really grateful that I got this opportunity. What better way to welcome Valentine’s Day than with ice creams and chocolates?” she smiles.

The models wore an interesting range of clothes, characterised by bright colours, flowing drapes  and the use of a lot of lace. The colours were predominantly pink and white, and added a pleasant appeal to the show. The girls could be seen donning short as well as long dresses in varied drapes and designs, while the boys wore shirts in checks and different patterns, which went with the look of the season.
