Dehradun, 2 May: A Fashion Show, Uttaragam’19, of Graphic Era Hill University showcased glimpses of tradition and habitat. Various delegates from the fashion industry evaluated the students on the basis of various parameters of design and fashion.
Based on the theme of sustainability, the costumes were made out of natural products, which became the centre of attraction for the audience. Inspired by Uttarakhand’s traditional costumes like ‘ghagri’, ‘saree’, ‘pagra’ and ‘sadri’, the students exhibited their work during the fashion show. The colours of Uttarakhand flowers like Buransh, Brahmkamal and state bird Monal were seen in the designing of the dresses. Costumes made out of ‘bichhughaas’ (nettle) yarn were worn by the models who walked on the ramp and left the audience awestruck. Renowned fashion and design brands like Raymond, Heart and Soul, Surat and Lenzing, Catro Corp sponsored the various costumes made by the students.
The highlight of the fashion show was that some of the costumes were designed using waste and left over cloth under the broader design range of ‘Recycle Silk Yarn’. Avaneeta Pandit, Tusha Bhatnagar, Nikhil Negi, Shivangi, Shruti Jain, Amisha Nidhi and other students of the fashion design department designed and prepared the costumes.
Vice Chancellor of Graphic Era Hill University Prof (Dr) Sanjay Jasola said this fashion show became possible only because of the continuous hard work and determination of students of Fashion Design Department.
Chief Guest, Director, Indian Administrative Academy, Mussoorie, Dr Sanjeev Chopra, Chancellor, Graphic Era Group, Prof Dr Kamal Ghanshala along with faculty members and students were present on the occasion. Head of the Department, Dr Jyoti Chhabra proposed the vote of thanks.
