Rendezvous with fashion at NIFT, Hyderabad

It is that time of the year when the future Sabyasachis and Manish Malhotras display their works; when aspiring designers showcase their creations. This was Fashionova and Knitmoda 2015, the graduation fashion show of NIFT, Hyderabad. The graduating students' design inspirations were as diverse as time travel, cubism and Ganga Manthan to the Kitchen. Inspired from elements of Edwardian and Egyptian, wanderlust as well as futuristic cyberworld, students unleashed their creativity on stage as he models sashayed down the runway, twirling and pausing, eliciting murmurs of approval from those in the audience.

Tanushree Nath, whose collection was called 'Whimsical Canvas' says, "My work, inspired from Cubism, uses all season fabric like denim and leather, solid colours and geometric design. The clothes seem runway-like and a lot of chic women would want to wear it." Shrishti Arora derives inspiration from the element of wanderlust, while Payal aspires to make garments that are fashionable, yet simple, Elie Saab style. The parents of those passing out of the college, beamed with pride and applauded for their child till their hands grew sore.
