Style: A metaphor for the confident woman

Style: A metaphor for the confident woman

The evening dazzled with lights and cameras as supermodels walked the ramp in outfits designed by the students of Satyam Fashion Institute.

As a part of their graduation completion, fashion show ‘Vista 2014’ was organised by the institute at the Air Force Auditorium which had the theme ‘Drape of Sadhus- Mahakumbh’ and ‘Glimpses of Mughal Architecture’.

There was more to enthral the audience as the pragmatic theme had exclusive sub-themes like exalting female figure and her curves. The inspiration was also taken from the punk culture (Glam punk), translated most accurately for today’s woman, through shades of black, red, orange, and warm colour palette.  The ramp gleamed with Swarovski, sequins and other metals as they adorned ensembles. The collection was a tribute to razzle-dazzle.

The glitterati of the event also saw an interesting segment called ‘Mahakumbh’. The collection was inspired by unpretentiously drapes of the ‘Fakirs’ which lie in the nuances of asymmetrical designs and patterns.

The assortment was an eccentric mix of thousand shades of saffron and
to spice it up were accessories and headgear made of Rudraksha some feathers.
The awards were distributed to participants in different categories. Anjali Jindal bagged the Behind the Seams award whereas Akanksha Gupta was appreciated for the research work.

Shikha Jakhar’s Royal Addiction collection won the award for the Best Design Collection as well as Pret a Porter for Ready to wear collection. Himanshi Aggarwal’s Indian Heroes collection made her the first runner up while Ritu Nandal’s Meet me at Night collection made her second runner up. Ria Gupta was given the Glitterati award for her accessory collection.

The fashion show was choreographed by celebrated choreographer, Anup Banerjee and also saw presence of fashion designers like Niket and Jainee Mishra, Rajdeep Ranawat, Geetanjali Ranawat, Aamir Zakir, Sonia Jetley and Varija Bajaj, Ravi Passi and Srivastava to name a few.

Manjulika Gautam, Director General, SFI said, “This gala event of SFI had the vivid colours and vast imagination of the promising designers. With the modern and cultural revolutions of fashion concept having under gone a tremendous change; fashion now is a perfect design, a technology, a science to be studied and to be communicated.”
