Hi-fashion at geek turf
It was fashion and music that rocked the IT hub for once, at the `Monsoon' featuring subtle fashion for the techies and feet tapping numbers from Piyush Soni.
MONSOON MARVEL: Traditional line for the season.
IT WAS an experience worth remembering. Aimed for the cyber towers workforce, the affluent and intelligent young, the TVS Fiero `Monsoon' fashion show held at the `O' Level at the Cyber Towers, Hi-tec City, struck a synergy with audience, showcasing contemporary wear from Switcher and United Colours of Benetton for the western wear, with party wear in cotton, kimkhwab and Benarasi for the formal occasions.
From the first sequence of Khewa saris and sherwanis to the dhotis and Kancheevarams, and the churidars from noted designers Shravan and Jyoti, the colours for the ensemble were fresh and subtle, with a rich magenta and green in Benarasi, browns and off white for the sherwanis to orange and coffee in the Tees.
The accessories of complimenting fine kundan jewellery or the simple geometric rings, the silk ties in black and grey, stoles is crushed silk and trendy party bags, all read simplicity. Further the young models choreographed by Tania, did a professional do at the ramp for the theme.
GO WEST: Hi-fashion for globe-trotters.
"The `Monsoon' is all about trends in a sense that monsoons have been there all through but one observes new trends each time," says Ramesh Muppana, Manager Special Events, Orion Themes.
A software engineer by training, Muppana brought together the show for the community close to his heart. "Most of the occupants have been exposed to world fashion and also their hectic schedule doesn't make them access the fashion shows regularly. Thus, it was bringing the show to them so that they can chill out. I'm sure most of the audience will be going back to their work after the show," he says. And the over-3,000 crowd did chill out, sharing the podium for a jig with Piyush Soni, the artist who could go in sync with the young crowd and rendered some foot-tapping numbers for the techies, starting with the popular Chokra to the mellow Tumse humey.
And it was encore, from the Cyberabadis, who wanted to have more of the music and works, a refreshing change from the world of binarys.
