Young designers showcased their skills and best of their designs at the ‘Orion Style Awards’, held at Orion Mall, recently.

Students from different fashion designing colleges showcased their work at the event.

The style awards was an exclusive competition for aspiring fashion designers and stylists.

The grand finale featured models sashaying down the ramp in the season’s trendiest collection and the competition was judged by fashion figures of the City.

Models sported a collection by students made especially for the competition. From gorgeous hues to trendy cuts, the students displayed their creativity with the fabric that they had got.

The finale saw 18 talented students vying for the top spot and presenting their designs. The first-half of the show was divided into three groups which had six students each. Neons and fluorescent collection was the highlight in one of the sessions. Students displayed an array of colours such as red, yellow, fluorescent green, yellow etc.

Bright prints mixed and matched with various types of fabric made the collection appealing. The stripes and psychedelic collection had an eclectic mix and match of stripes and solid colours. Off-shoulder dresses, striped pants, striped and denim T shirts etc were a part of this collection.

In the final round, students were given a common theme and thay had to innovate on that. While some came up with brilliant creations, many stuck to being simple and elegant. Students were given a white T-shirt and a pair of jeans which had to be moulded according to their creativity. Ramesh Punia, a student of Army Institute of Design, was quite innovative as he incorporated tribal motifs on the denim and also mixed and matched a jute skirt and a jute overcoat which made the attire all the more interesting. Namrata A Harjani, a student of JD Institute of Technology, mixed satin with denim and made it look pretty innovative.

Priya Darshini, a student used the white T-shirt like a ‘choli’ and teamed it with a short denim shorts, while Lalnehliana cut the denim into shreds and clubbed it with a white T-shirt.

Rajesh, a fashion design student, feels that it was a good opportunity for students to showcase what they had learnt all these years. “It helps in giving a lot of exposure to students like us. We can show off our designs to the public and to prospective clients. It opens up many avenues for us,” he notes. The winners of the competition were Sneha S K, Shlesma Timsina and Bhagya Jyothi.
