Before the show there was a small dance programme, where Trupti, a student, gave a powerful Bharatanatyam performance which was followed up by a scintillating belly dance routine by Anusha who performed numbers like Kiss and Hips don’t lie. But what threw the crowd into a frenzy was a joint performance where they danced to Masakali.

“Though Trupti is a trained dancer, we both had practiced a lot for this combined dance,” said Anusha, another student, after the show. Shruti and Vikar were the hosts for the evening and kept everyone entertained, with Vikar often complaining that his co-host was getting more attention from the students than him.

The fashion show started with the team from NMIT giving a non-competitive performance on the theme, Six seasons of the year. The collection saw the use of Indian fabrics in glittering colours like blue, green and red. These colours symbolised the various seasons of the Hindu calender. The show was well-choreographed and had the students showcasing saris, dhotis and sherwanis.

M Visvesvaraya Institute of Technology was up next with the theme Indian Ethnic. Manipal University’s team decided to take up New Age Gothic as their theme. “If the world continues to spend so much time on war, this is what the future fashion would look like,” they announced before going on stage. The collection was a mix of black and white and saw the students walking the ramp with painted faces. The glowing lights on their faces and the zombie like music added to the effect.

This was followed by a presentation by Sambhram Institute of Technology who again looked at black for their inspiration calling their collection Blackout.
Presidency College showcased a collection under the theme, Indian ethnic and though the clothes were not original, they made up for the shortcoming by playing lively Punjabi music to which they choreographed their show. The festival came to an end with a groovy DJ night which was something that all the students were really looking forward to.
