Flowing Style

Fashion in many sequences

IDEA, the design school, celebrated their annual day recently with a full-length programme marked by entertainment and fashion. Student awards were given out in various categories, songs and dances were staged at intervals but the highlight of the event was the sequenced fashion show.

“Our job is to make the world a better looking place, which is prettier and more peaceful,” said Thomas, Director of IDEA, in his inaugural address. The first sequence was called the Drape and Dazzle and had models in flowing styles and softly-draped fabrics with plenty of eye-catching accessories. Large circular head-pieces in silks and shimmery dramatic make-up set off the draped outfits effectively.

The styles were a combination of Roman Togas and short cocktail dresses. A lot of attention was paid to armlets, bracelets and anklets, that were created out of matching fabric in unusual designs. Even the men wore draped sarongs and head-gear that was a mix of turban and punk. Plenty of twisted fabric around the upper body, arms and neck were used to embellish each ensemble.

The second fashion sequence Pink and Pretty was a study in shades of pink.Young, trendy and peppy, the colours varied from bright fuschia to soft baby pink.The Indian and Western styles were highlighted with silver accessories like jewelled belts, necklaces with large glittering flowers and bracelets. The outfits were teamed up with dressy footwear like Roman sandals and silver high heels.

Romance in Red, a range of rich bridal wear, was the theme of the grand finale. Red was the primary colour of the sarees, churidars and lehengas, that were embellished with fine embroidery in gold, zardosi, stones and sequins. Heavy bridal jewellery, from necklaces to bangles and hair ornaments, were worn to accessorise the outfits.

Men were dressed in traditional sherwanis to complement the brides. Students from different sections participated enthusiastically and showed off their talents in puppeteering, dance, music and drama.
