A passion for fashion

A passion for fashion

Fashion choreographer Mithilesh Nyathappa’s inclination for fashion began during his college days when he contributed his mite in grooming models and knitting shows creatively.

As time passed, he realised that he actually enjoyed what he was doing and discovered that the passion for fashion ran deep in him. 

Some of the best models in the City have been groomed by Mithilesh, which includes the fashion team of Mount Carmel College, for more than a decade. In fact, Bollywood’s reigning style diva Deepika Padukone trained under him for a good five years when she was at Mount Carmel College.

“I believe that I can groom young talent or just be a guide to the aspiring models who are not sure where they have to start to realise their dream. In their success, lies the fulfilment of my dream,” he says. 

Mithilesh has travelled across the country, designing and conceptualising shows and his vast experience reflects in the many twists he lends to fashion. “Fashion is for the masses and style is more personal. Style depends on what each one adapts to. Some trends become style, others don’t,” he notes. 

Mithilesh thinks every generation has its own defined fashion style. “You can see the change from 1960s...down to the present generation. Today’s young are very fashion forward. The current generation derives inspiration from every aspect of life... from the streets and architecture to nature,” he observes.

Mithilesh feels trends in fashion may have evolved but the core remains the same. “Today, people are more conscious about what they wear and how they wear it,” he adds. 

Mithilesh has also been a part of ‘Metrolife Fashion Show’ since its conception in 2011. He has successfully led the show season after season. This year too, he is gearing up for Season 4 of the ‘Metrolife Fashion Show’ and thinks that the show has grown in leaps and bounds.

“What started as a simple idea has now become the most-awaited event among college students. This show not only builds a lot of camaraderie among the student community but also encourages healthy competition,” Mithilesh says. 
He also feels that since creativity is the primary criteria to qualify for the ‘Metrolife Fashion Show,’ students don’t leave anything to chance.

“The participation has been growing and we can see that students pool together passion and hard work to come up with something unusual. Last year, we saw some of the most unusual styles, colours and prints hit the ramp. We hope to see more of that this year too,” he concludes.
