Army Institute wins Deccan Herald Metrolife fashion show
The fifth season of the grand finale of the Deccan Herald Metrolife fashion show turned the page at every step with bags full of delightful surprises.

Presented by Reliance Trends at Dayanand Sagar Institutions, Kumarawamy Layout, there was no dearth of innovation with costumes, colours and props. Not surprising. Various colleges took liberty to interpret the theme, ‘Pageturners’.

Army Institute of Fashion Technology bagged the first place. They didn’t leave any stone unturned as they spent a week in their costumes and designing their props. True to their theme, ‘Black Sparrow’, Rohit, one of the designers said that they had worked to represent womenhood. “We want to portray the boldness, independence, confident and glamour during the fly of a woman’s life.”

Girls from Mount Carmel College bagged the second place. They portrayed changing hues of nature and season; from blue to indigo to white to autumn; to represent themselves as natural pageturners.

The third place went to Acharya Institute of Technology and Vogue Institute of Fashion Technology, South bagged the fourth place. But the prizes didn’t end here. Richie, from Vogue Institute of Fashion Technology, South was adjudged as the best male model and the best female model was Zufishan from Dayanand Sagar College of Engineering.

The show began with a visual treat. Nimble-footed dancers from the Tarantismo Dance Company, a professional dance group which crosses borders through their cutting-edge choreography, sizzled on stage to popular songs like ‘One Step Closer’.

Sandalwood actors Kriti Kharbanda and Raghu Mukherjee and designer Paresh Lamba lauded all the contestants. Model, fashion stylist and choreographer Jackie Besterwich enjoyed the vibe of the auditorium and found the event to be of great effort by the students.

The guest of Honour, filmmaker Ramesh Aravind said, “It’s not my first time here and it’s heart-warming to see that the event has got bigger and better. The energy and enthusiasm of the young crowd here is magnetic and I am looking forward to coming back next year.”  

The lively team of St Joseph’s PU College portrayed with the uniqueness of an individual in their walk, The Oxford College of Science walked in loud colours to showcase a pinch of brightness during dark times. The team from Dayanand Sagar College of Engineering took the stage by storm.

The teams showed equal energy during the brand round. From high end to the kitsch; underground western sartorial to traditional Indian block prints; the teams wore exciting collections by Reliance Trends, India’s largest fashion destination.
