The Blender’s Pride Fashion Tour 2012 has reached Kolkata, and Nida Mahmood took all the praises on the day one as she drew inspiration from the Mumbai’s Bun maska. Her models dazzled the ramp with LED-lit flowers on their heads.
Her collection, ‘Bombay Bun Maska’, was inspired from the popular Mumbai based snack and was also a tribute to the free-spirited people with their non-pretentious attitude, who believe in creating their own style. The Boho chic was at its best, with the structured garments, which included the fluid ones as well. It was the LED lights with flowers placed on the heads of the models that caught the attention and added a wonderful touch to the collection.
The Bengali Beauty, Raima Sen, walked the ramp for Nida, stating that she was quite nervous during the fashion show.
Nida is known for the quirky designs and prints as well as the unconventional silhouettes for the women. But this time she also brought a collection for men. The colourful collection was meant for the strongly opinionated men. It was also bold and youthful.
Alongside, even Raghavendra Rathore showcased his collection on the Day 1 of the event. Known for his collections inspired from the Indian heritage, the designer came up with his newly launched diffusion line called ‘Club Jodhpur’ and ‘Club J’. The collection celebrated the tradition with the ethnic wear that included Jodhpur jackets, achkans, kurtas, churidars and the Nehru Jackets along with the embroidered waistcoats.
The event has also featured celebrities like Yami Gautam and Chitrangada Singh till now. Yami Gautam walked the ramp as the show-stopper for Mandira Wirk. While Chitrangada sizzled the ramp for designer duo, Pankaj and Nidhi while showcasing their collection ‘Liquid Gold Tree’.
