Ethnic splendour on stage

The students of Maharani Lakshmi Ammanni College for Women (MLACW) recently conducted an inter-college fashion show, in which participants showcased ethnic outfits with the utmost confidence and poise.

The theme was bridal wear and it comprised of different rounds. In the first, all 66 participants got on stage, introducing themselves and explained the state they were representing. In the second round, they were asked general questions by the judges about movies they watch etc. Ten finalists were chosen and each given a title.

The participants were thrilled about the chance they got to express themselves on stage.
Neshi Nongmaithem, a student from KLE Nijalingappa College, who was dressed as a Manipuri bride, was proud and excited to show off her costume. “The potloi (rasaleela skirt) along with the lishon fhurit is worn for a traditional wedding. The jewellery I wore included three similar chains, which are called marei and sandrembi,” she elaborates. She adds that this was her first time in a fashion show and it was amazing.

Monisha M, a second-year BCom student of MLACW, was dressed as a South Karnataka bride. “Having taken part in more than 15 fashion shows, this wasn’t hard. But the questionnaire round was a challenge,” shares Monisha. Anusha Rodrigues, a student of Malleswaram Lady Association First Grade College for Women, came as a Christian bride.

“I even got the best physique award. It was fun to feel the pride of being a bride and there was healthy competition at the contest,” she says.

Jewellery was an integral part of bridal wear. Jovina Joy, from KLE Nijalingappa, dressed as a Rajasthani bride. “The bright colours and heavy jewellery really add to the look,” she says.
