SASMIRA, in its continuous endeavor to promote design literate human resource pool in today’s competitive market; organized Enchanté 2019 at Renaissance Hotel, Powai. The show was organised by Aseem Singh, Director – Tefla’s which is a renowned event management group based in Mumbai.
The central theme of the Fashion Collection 2019 was “Wanderlust” and the students had designed their collections picking up inspirations from the various places that they had visited or lust to visit. They had internalized this lust of wandering into beautifully crafted designs. How these places – their exotic landscapes, diverse climate, awe-inspiring structures and distinct cultures had inspired them to conceive an idea that pushes them to weave designs on the looms of their creativity is the essence of their collection. Their collections are nostalgic, neoteric and futuristic in their conception.
Professional models including Sucheta Sharma and Candice Pinto walked the ramp for designers. Vaishali S, Sunipa S, Amit Ranjan, Tasneem Merchant (Fashion Designer), Meher Castelino (Author) came specially to judge the fashion show. Singer Shahzad Ali performed live for all students and guest of Sasmira.
The students had designed Indian; Indo-Western & Western wear and fashion accessories collections. These collections had a wide variety of colours and fabrics.
Director, Dr. U.K. Gangopadhyay was of the view that,“Fashion serves as language, a non-verbal communication, which is the only way in which a culture’s beliefs, mores, customs etc. are passed on to another generation”
Head of SETP, Krishnendu Datta said, “Fashion represents our inner psyche, it re-establishes our status in society. ‘Enchanté’ is an event, which gives our students a platform to not only present their work but also learn and practically understand the industry.”
