The ethnic round.

Imagine walking on a 79.1 feet-long ramp for a fashion show at a college fest! This ramp was set up as part of A Effectuer Fest, hosted by Baldwin’s Methodist College, to bring out the creative side of students. Students from Vogue Institute of Fashion Technology, Army Institute, Dayanand Sagar College of Engineering, M S Ramaiah Institute, RNSIT and Sindhi College, among others, took part in the fest.

Blue, yellow and red lights played inside Lincoln Hall, where the fashion show was held. The show kickstarted with City College hitting the ramp.

All the participants were asked to perform in two sequences. One was the ethnic round and the other was open round. Each college was judged on the basis of their creativity, presentation style and uniqueness.

Most colleges started with the ethnic round. Saris, salwars, dhotis, kacche panche, sherwanis were worn by participants in the ethnic round, while fashionable outfits like skirts, short tops, tube tops and shirts were worn in the open round.

Some of the girls had braided their hair, some had left it untied while some had styled it smartly in such a way that it suited the clothes they wore. As the ramp was a very long one, the show-stopper and the students, who walked on it, made a couple of stops on it. The ramp also won a place in the Limca Book of Records. The usual ramp is just 18 feet.

Nayaz, a participant from M S Ramaiah College, said, “It was really nice to walk on such a long ramp. And it gave me time to work on my walking style. Such ramps give ample time to get into the mood of the show also. My friends and I had great fun. Especially, when we walked in traditional clothes,” he added.

Judges for the show were Veena Bhat, Roop Goklokani and Pooja. Heart-thumping music was played in the background as the participants walked the ramp.

The fashion show lasted for a couple of hours and students of various colleges, who  were inexperienced models and designers, put together a fashion show worthy of appreciation.

Dayanand Sagar College won the first place and M S Ramaiah, the second place in the fashion show.

Donoko from Dayanand Sagar College walked away with the best female model prize and Akshith, also from the same college, was chosen as the best male model.
