The world of haute couture


An ethnic fashion show interspersed with songs and dances marked the launch of Srishti, the house of fashion, at The Palm Beach Hotel on Friday.

In all, seven models including two males sashayed on the ramp wearing the creations of designer, Chinmoy Das. The zardosi works on khadi, designer tops on jeans with variety borders and designs and the Indo western fusion wear were impressive.

But for the final fashion sequence in which the girls showed off more than they could hide, all the other rounds were refreshingly different and the participants presented a perfect picture of traditional Indian women.


The lawns of the hotel with the beach as the backdrop provided the perfect setting for singer, Abid Ali, to begin the programme with the song "Chehra jaisi chand si lali... " from the film `Sagar'. The audience tapped their feet as he sang the melodious number, "Mere sapno ki rani kab ayegi tu".

Revathi cast a spell on the audience with her dance to the popular number "Aisa jadoo dala re... ". The flexibility with which she moved her hands and legs gave the impression that she had springs all over her body. Sarita's dances were impressive considering the fact that she was only a kid.

Eight-year old Arjun Bharadwaj played some good tunes on the keyboard. However, failure of the sound system affected his performance.

Pratbha Hari anchored the programme.

The show was organised and hosted by the event organiser, Ajay Agarwal, of Creative Plus, free of cost to encourage the upcoming designer.
