JD Institute of Fashion Technology – Celeste-elements of nature

The graduating students of the JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore put up a grand show at their Annual Design Awards Show 2011. This year’s theme was titled “Celeste-elements of nature”. The show was choreographed by Rahul Dev Shetty.

The Design Awards show kicked off to an exciting start with vibrant designs from the participants.  Designer Huda Khan’s TRANSMUTE collection took everyone’s breath away. It conceptualized on the ability of a flat piece of fabric to be transformed into multiple items such as garments and accessories. The collection focused on being bold, edgy, innovative and sophisticated.

Vying for attention was the PUANCHEI collection by Designer Lalnunengi presenting an ode to tradition with a call to the new generation. Focused around the traditional fabric of Mizoram, the collection depicted celebration and festivity, communicating the spirit of unitythrough simple cuts and silhouettes using bold lines.

Designer Parbani’s MATI collection was inspired by the classic “A wife’s letter” by Rabindranath Tagore and is a tribute to the strong personality using linen and silk in a mix of elements such as print and checks, variations of checks, crows and an abstract form of batik, supported by the traditional Kanthawork.  The predominant colors used were rich Indian shades of red, ochre, and white, offset with beige, black and maroon.

INFERNO literally rocked the show with Designer Pavithra’s bold and adventurous depiction of the elements of one of the most violent phenomena in nature – the Volcano. The collection, inspired by rocks and lava, played with textures, colors and patterns, portraying the energy.

Designer Naga Prachita Devi’s KANCHIYUR collection drew a fresh appeal to the Kanchipuram silk fabric by incorporating them as gowns using butas from Kanchipuran temple sculptures in a rich fusion of  tradition and innovation.

The TEMEROSO collection of the D Squad trio Smitha, Lavanya, Akshata played with the diverse and flexible human nature. The collection focused on the dark and mysterious facets of human nature, grunge styling with wedge silhouettes and asymmetric cutsin roughly texture black, charcoal, camel and maroon.  They used materials like suede, denim, lycra and leather and accessorized the garments with boots, gloves headgears and masks.

The Jury of eminent personalities from the fashion industry clearly had a tough time choosing the winner of the evening. Designer Huda Khan was announced as the winner of the Annual Design Awards Show 2011. The runner up award given to Naga Prichita Devi and the juniors had a separate category award for their hard work and creativity.
