Creativity on ramp


Jazzy : The fusion line.

It was their last day at college and what better way to exit than to give a preview of what the world can look out for. The students of Aruna Institute of Fashion Technology recently celebrated their graduation day with a fashion show, entitled ‘Cascade 2009’.

With a lot of anticipation and eagerness from the students, the show started after the traditional graduation ceremony. “Fashion has three important eyes, namely, inspiration, invention and implementation. Co-ordinate these three and you will go places,” said the chief guest, Dinesh P Talera, Director of Mysore Saree Udyog.

Emphasising on the theme of fashion being a part one’s life since childhood, the graduating students presented three sequences, peppered with some fashion trivias.

“Many people have their own definition of what fashion is really about. But one thing is for sure, fashion has always been a part of who we are,” said one of the students before the show began.

The first sequence took one down the memory lane of how fashion was for the little ones. Children, they explained, were always fashion conscious and this trend is encouraged by the parents. From the frilly frocks to the denim skirts, small kids walked the ramp  showing the party sequence. 

The next sequence concentrated on fusion wear. Making it an ‘east-meets-west’ concept, the line had bright summer colours and soft fabrics. The Jodhpuri footwear, ‘chudi’ pants and tights teamed up with tunics, the sequenced sherwani, and lot more other things designed by the students gave a whole new meaning to the fusion called ‘India Calling’. The huge turbans on the women and the pleated skirts gave a nice Afghani look to the line. This was then followed by a bridal wear, where the most traditional outfits like the sarees and the ghagaras came out with lovely sequenced blouses.

Apart from a few technical glitches, which could be overlooked, the evening was enjoyed by one and all.
