For the green cause

For the green cause

Most of the models who walked the ramp were Rotarians and their spouses, along with sports personalities and citizens from all walks of life.
The theme was Run for Green and the colour was highly visible as part of the evening’s ambience and spirit with many adhering to the dresscode and turning up in different shades of green.

Choreographed by Rahul Dev Shetty and styled by Anita Kholay, the different sequences that involved people from all age groups sent out strong messages on saving the environment and becoming more aware of the ecological problems facing the planet and the City.

Mark Rego, the emcee, kept the tempo of the evening up interacting with the audience and conducting pop quizzes on environmental issues that most people are familiar with.
First up was a sequence appropriately named Recycle. Models and athletes clad in ensembles made from jute and recycled paper strutted their stuff in a mix of outfits that were dramatic and unusual. Nioosha, a well-known model wore a specially created white ensemble made from paper while some wore flowing strips of fabric in mutlicolours, shiny metallic looking fabric and even recycled bubble wrap converted into fashion accessories. The outfits were teamed up with boots and strappy heels. Young teens in green tee shirts came on stage and talked about saving the environment in between the fashion sequences giving the models a breather.

 Next followed Revive, a blue and green saree sequence with members of the Rotary sashaying down the ramp with all the confidence and panache of professional models. ‘Run’ was the final sequence that brought out the theme of the midnight marathon effectively.

Many of the athletes present pledged their support to the cause of rejuvenating the green cover that the City has lost in recent times and many of the guests signed up for the upcoming marathon with great enthusiasm.
