Arun Ratna, A New Promise To Fashion!

A fashion perfectionist is the best term to describe this young and vibrant fashion choreographer, Arun Ratna. He stands by the quote, “You have to dream before your dreams come true.”

Arun said, “I used to watch FTV during my early years. I always dreamt of working with models, who had walked for FTV.” “Later as I aspired as a fashion choreographer I made my dreams come true and worked with models like Carol Gracias, Upen Patel, Jessie Randawa, Rachell, Gauri Arna etc. “ he added.

His brilliance has been proved by being the lead choreographer for beauty pageants, Miss. South India, Queen of Malabar, Miss. Hyderabad, Navy Queen and other reputed fashion shows both in national and international levels.

How & When did you start as a fashion choreographer?

I belong to Calicut in Kerala. I started as a fashion designing student. In Calicut inter collegiate competitions used to happen. I used to do my own shows as well as people from different colleges used to call me for working out concept, choreography etc for their shows. This is how I started as a fashion professional.

Please tell us why did not you continue in designing?

In comparison to designing, my expertise was in choreography. So I took up choreography and excelled in it.

Please share with us a wonderful experience or show you had during your initial stages of career?

As I had mentioned that my service was sought for fashion shows. In January 2008 I did a fashion show called, ‘Punks of Lilliput’ for the Rotaract Club of Calicut. For this show I took male models of height ranging from 5 ft 3 inches to 5 ft 6 inches. I had to train these guys and they rocked the show. Normally modeling is not advised for men who are of this height. But this show was a success and of course a trend setter.

How potential is Kerala with regard to fashion?

Kerala has talents. But people here are not very open minded when it comes to a career in fashion. I feel that they should change their outlook and embrace fashion as any other profession or career.

What are your achievements in this field so far?

•3rd Prize Winner for National level Designers Contest in Coimbatore, 2000

•Sree Chithira Thirunal award for the best fashionist, Kerala, 2008

•7 times Judged South India level Fashion Show Contest

•Rotract Excellency Award for the best Fashionist in 2010

Would you like to thank anyone in particular for paving your path in fashion and helping you succeed?

I would like to thank everyone who had worked with me. Though my list includes many names. I would specially thank these two, Ajith Pegasus and Sageer Zenora

What are your new projects?

•Miss. Queen of India, Bangalore
•Miss. Face of India, Dubai
