International Institute of Fashion Designing (INIFD) Lindsay Street recently organized the annual graduating event of their institution at Rang Durbar, Swabhumi. The event also saw the felicitation of Tollywood actor Prosenjit Chatterjee as the “Fashion Icon of Bengal”.
Jatishwar Hero Prasenjit Chatterjee said “This is a great honor for me to be bestowed with the title of Fashion Icon of Bengal. I feel humbled. Fashion is of much importance. Even for roles like the one of Lalon Fokir that I did in Moner Manush, fashion is important. Hence I came up with the idea that the budding designers of this institute can design some dresses for me. In this way they will be exposed to the Bengali film industry and we will also get to see some upcoming talents in this field of fashion”. The budding designers will be able to submit their designs from January till Saraswati Puja. The actor who had a show in Sunderbans had to leave early.
The graduation event of INIFD had actress Dimpy Mahajan, Kanchana Moitra, actor Chinmoy Roy and model-actress Richa Sharma as the judges for the show. “This is one of the major events where the graduating students showcase their collections. These collections are totally done by the students, right from the designing to cutting, stitching and finishing of the garments. The show has been choreographed by Anandi Ghose.” said Mrs.Susan Mantosh, Director, INIFD.
The show had eminent models of the city like Madhabilata walking the ramp in the dress designed by the students. Enchanted princess, Pop cube, Circus, Masquerade, Raw to Funish, Punk and antagonist, Sita swamvar, Runaway Bride, Lakshmi Bai reincarnated were some of the collections showcased at this graduating event. Jute, cotton, silk were some of the fabrics used by the students for the making of the dresses. The rich color scheme used in the dresses was eye catching.
The annual graduating show “Tomorrow Makers 2013-14” was a riot of colors, burst of expressions and a montage of cuts, stitches and frills.
