Soccer players land at SPFW second day
The floor was scorched Saturday at the Signature Premier Fashion Week in Kolkata, with designer Agnimitra Paul setting the stage on fire with her unique collections and five soccer players as her showstoppers for the evening.
The Indo-Western collections were based on the in-heritage saga of 'Madhubani paintings' of Bihar and the whole theme was set to match the culture, habit and trends of Bihar with orange vermilion, ribbons to tie hair, betel leaves in mouth and DJ Akash mixing Bihari music and songs.
The show had an oomph factor to it with a palate of red, yellow, blue, green, white, pink and black colours that washed away the red carpet like a flowing rivulet.
Said Agnimitra," I love colours and Madhubani Painings are a celebration of colours."
The applauds never stopped when the grand showsstoppers Rahim Nabi, Odafa Okoli, Tolgay and Mehtab Hossain made their entries donned in Agnimitra's creations.
The who's who present at the show were soccer player Barreto with his wife, Moonmoon Sen accompanied by her husband, Shaheb Bhattacharjee and Dolan Roy among many others while Prosenjit Chatterjee joined the bandwagon later.
The show was already graced with designer Tejas Gandhi's shine, subtle and lot of French collections whose inspiration was Indian women, those who attempt to get a global look.
The designer who mesmerized the audience with live music also advised, " Go glamorous in-terms of Globalization."
The fun and frolic was added by designer Farheen B. Rahman with her 'Be- jewel' collections of white, grey, ash, red, purple and blue that set the mood to festive alike with a unique style of choreography where the models shook their legs while walking the ramp.
"I made military fitted jackets paired with lace and net along with a lot of feminism so that everybody can wear it," said the designer.
