The two-day Fashion Week saw creative design collections displayed by 11 designers which were appreciated by all and sundry at the event. The fashion week kicked off on the evening of 25th March and was inaugurated by the Mrs. Upinder Kaur Walia, Honourable Mayor of Panchkula. She appreciated the work of the organizers and gave her support to the cause of proposing a ban on the open sale of acid which has often been used by jilted lovers to destroy the lives of many young girls and women. “It is heartening to see that the cause of women is also being highlighted in this show. It would be even more effective, if we involve women at the grass root level to eradicate this malady. I assure you of my full support”, she said. Renowned Ophthalmologist Dr Harpeet Kaur was also honoured by the organizers.


 


The fashion week kicked off with a Bollywood based collection by Kingshuk Bhaduri and it laid the foundation for many other exciting rounds which were appreciated by all. Kingshuk’s keen eye for detail and color was the main characteristic of his collection. Then it was the turn of Chandigarh based designer Jyoti Lakhotra whose collection as inspired by Rajasthani culrture and tradition. Lively colors like hot pink, deep red, bottle green, royal blue, bright yellow and wine immediately caught the attention of all.  Bandhani & Lehria called out for you in swaying georgettes and crepes.   ‘Srijna’ was the aptly named title of Ritu Ritesh’s collection. Her work included usage of natural dyes and pigments and impressions made from real leaves. One could easily call it very creative and of course in tune with the environment. Her work left us amazed and one could not help and sit and wonder as to how she achieves such great results with natural colors. Jyoti Hooda stunned everyone by the usage of mix and match and the collection as titled ‘Fusion’ and it was exactly as per the title. Some of the garments were so relatable and trendy at the same time and one could have immediately ordered a few of them as it is.

Then came the turn of Gauri Satija and Shyma Zuber who focused their attention on draping style. Their garments showed new styles and forms of sarees which defines our modern India. Their various styles of draping added more elegance to the dresses worn by their models.  Nupur Thirani and Khushboo Rohilla expressed themselves through their clothes that set them apart from previous generations. Their collection was inspired by the horse and buggy days and a feeling of nostalgia crept in once we watched the models pass by. It was all about short flared polka dots dress, draped sarees and high waist pants.



“It was a great experience working with the models and fashion designers. The people gave us a great response and in the future also we will be consucting such shows that will launch many careers in the glamour world”, added Mr. Anil Sharma the CEO of Big Break Entertainment, Mumbai.

Simi Sharma, director of the company and also the anchor for the evening gave eye opening speech on the plight of the acid survivors. She urged the doctors to come forward to treat & NGO’s not to ask for the money but to ask for the medical facilities and basics for the better life of such victims…

Show was directed by Jeet Brar to the success.

Big Break Entertainment is running a drive from past three months that Acid should be sold in a controlled manner through legal license, just like Kerosene and Petrol. A bottle available for merely Rs .30 in market has devastated the life of many young girls...

On day two of the event the Chief Guest was Brigadier Kuldip Singh Chandpuri, Maha Vir Chakra awardee and the ‘Hero of the Battle of Laungewala’ on whose life the super hit hindi film ‘Border’ was based and Sunny Deol played his role in it. “It is very unfortunate that these kind of things are happening to our sisters and daughters in today’s times. It will be good on the part of the Govt if steps are taken to regulate the sale of acid, which has till now been used to shatter the lives of many woman” said Brig Chandpuri. He also laid stress on respect for women in our daily lives.

Respect and courage were also the defining moments of this collection. Shades ranging from burgundy to bright maroon were featured in the ensembles.

Various shades of grey have always fascinated the human mind and taking a cue from that Laxmi & Rashmi came out with the achromatic color scheme in their dresses. Pretty models sashaying across the ramp in black, grey and white were the cynosure of all eyes. Local designer Riddhi Sood showcased her collection titled ‘Nirvana’ - a state of complete balance. This collection had emerged from a divergent thought and challenged the mind.
