Fashion show kicks off in resplendent style

They came, they catwalked and they flamboyantly strutted their smart and showy pret-a-porter sartorial stuff. Why not? 

With Bangalore’s very own pasha of haute couture Prasad Bidapa and fashion designer Nimirta Lalwani as judges, City’s college students left nothing to chance, showcasing their innovative and inspiring creations. 

Sure enough, as their fellow designers presented their wears, the awe-struck audience lustily cheered with oohs! and aahs! at the annual fourth season of Deccan Herald Metrolife Fashion Show, the definitive springboard to career in fashion designing.

Given their natural eye for detail and design, and of course, being young women, the dress sense, Maharani Lakshmi Ammanni College for Women cakewalked the north zone preliminary of the show, for their ensemble ethnic collections, powered by fashion retailer Reliance Trends. 

Sindhi College, Hebbal, sported a cool and classy atmosphere, as 24 colleges vied for the honours and make the grade for the finale. While Garden City College took the second spot for their dainty designs based off the red carpet, and Army Institute of Fashion Technology the third, for their enticing and evocative range – Meera turns Madonna.
 Acharya Institute of Technology, who, in keeping with their themed ‘aam admi’ offerings, in colourful ‘lungis’ and pajamas, were consolation winners.

Indeed, it was not an easy task for the jury, also comprising Sandalwood stars Sumanth Shailendra and Roopashree, as a potpourri of themes, tantalising designs coveted everyone’s keen fashion sense and attention.

Sindhi PU College, RJS First Grade College and Symbiosis Institute of Business Management went Indian, with their ethnic collections of ‘lehengas’ ‘anarkali’ and decoratively designed ‘saris’, while CMR Law College melded their Indomania collection through a fusion of West and Indian ethnic wear.   

St Josephs College of Arts and Science sauntered around in their football jerseys, baseball, racing and other sporting outfits. Hosts Sindhi College, tad unlikely to touch that emotive chord with the decision makers, however, stood out with their Gothic-themed collection.
