ABOUT THE SHOW…..

One of the most exciting times in just about every fashion student’s life is participating in their grand fashion show. These highly anticipated events provide the opportunity for students to create a complete collection and send it down the runway. The ‘best of the best’ programs also offer the opportunity for junior, senior and/ passing out designers to apply what they have learned in the classroom to a real runway and to work with professional runway models and have their collections viewed by many spectators. The Fashion Show “A New Dawn in the World of Creation Season 3, saw the culmination of months of hard work for the students. The show was held at U Soso Tham Auditorium Shillong on the 12 of November 2016. The show was graced by Shri P.S.Dkhar, the District Commissioner of East Khasi Hills District.

Discovering one’s identity is a continuous evolution, an attempt to strike a balance between self-exploration and finding one’s place within a community. As  fashion design students, they dare to find themselves through a collection of work evoked from personal experience and their education throughout their course. While their individual styles are diverse, their collections find commonality in the passion, creativity, and enthusiasm this exemplary group brings to the fashion and design. The designs they presented range from traditional to modern outfits, men’s to women’s wear on various themes with true experimentation of hues, textures, silhouettes and details. There were total 8 collections, 23 designers and 56 models.

There was a constant flow of spectators at the show, including the representatives of some renowned state designers, who could view the talents of our students. For the students, the show was designed to be as close to real-life as possible.

The Fashion Design Department would like to thank the Chairman of K.L.Bajoria College, Sir B.P.Bajoria, CAO Ma’am, Professor P.P.Dhar, Principal and Teachers, Family and Friends for their support and love throughout.

Theme: THE CULT OF COLOURS

 Color carries emotional resonance with it- in that, when we see a color, we have an emotional response towards that color. We naturally associate colors with emotions because it is hard to put words to what we are feeling.

Have you ever taken the time to consider why color plays an important role in your activities of daily living?

  • Color determines your mood.
  • Mood determines your productivity.
  • Productivity determines your success.
  • Success determines your happiness

In this collection, the students have created designs by using color combination according to the fashion color schemes. The design pattern or shapes are inspired from the architectural design and geometrical forms. The combination of architectural design with color blocks gives the chance to the wearer to enhance themselves and their natural curves. This collection gives us the opportunity to pair colors which we won’t dare to combine together.  Each piece in the collection can be transformed to adapt to the wearer’s needs and moods. Combining elements, juxtaposing contrasts, each ensemble offers endless possibilities, resulting in a unique, modern wardrobe unfazed by fleeting trends. Delineating the silhouette of the woman whose look is “always similar but never the same,” rejecting standardization, capturing the spirit of the times and freely developing its distinctive style.

Theme: TRADI-MOD

 North East India has a diverse and rich culture throughout its geography. Clothing varies with regions, religions, ethnicity, climatic conditions and cultural traditions. The aim of this collection is to revolutionize the clothing and accessories in a way, so as to keep its authenticity intact, blended with traditional woven fabric to showcase the modern styles and sensibilities of contemporary clothes. The design is a unification of ‘Pe- Seleng’ and ‘ Pe-Sarpih’ of Karbi traditional attire. ‘Pe- Sarpih’ and ‘Pe- Seleng’ is one of the oldest clothes of Karbi traditional attire. Striped cloth with colour combinations of red, white and black. Silhouettes that stand out in this collection are A-line frock, tight fitted dress, skirt and a designer shirt for men. The quirky elements that add spunk in this collection is the use of pom pom and tassels as an ornamentations. In terms of colour code, the designers played with traditional colours and a mixed tone of pastel and bright colours.

This contemporary modulation of the traditional weaves translated to modern silhouettes and jewelry designs also appeals to the new-age Indian who is constantly striving hard to make marks on the global picture.

Theme: THE GINGHAM FAIRY TALES

Fashion is all about creating a specific type of image or concept that people can relate to. This time, the Fashion Design Dept have chosen a theme that brings back those nostalgic childhood memories of reading fantasy books and stories into the clothes we wear. Those classic fairytale concepts have been incorporated with Gingham fabrics. I’m sure you all are familiar with Gingham Fabrics ? or what is mostly referred to here as Jain Kyrshah.. It’s a classic fabric that never goes out of style. Through this collection, we wanted to give a few ideas on how to use them into fashion lines in such a way so as to make the clothes unique and visually attractive.

The collection gives a unique and imaginative exhibition that examines fairy tales through the lens of fashion, bringing out  the connections between fashion and storytelling. The dresses are often used to symbolize a character’s transformation, vanity, power, or privilege, her grace, her spark and her legendary beauty.

Theme: CRAFTING FASHION

 When the element of Creative craft meets with Handmade Fashion YOU are in for a treat!!! This is the case with the Fashion Design Department. A welcome change from the usual collection giving the outfits a unique look especially what every fashionista strives for.

Charming with a burst of bright colors featuring its contrast, each outfit is ornamented with plastic straw, woven to the garments. The students of the department have taken this collection and redefined it through plastic straw traditional craft technique, as it is not seen among the fashion sphere and also to understand how this technique works before it is gone.. That is why we call it INNOVATIONS!!!

 Featuring everything from handcrafted evening gowns to handcrafted jewellery to complement the attires, the collection encompasses a dazzling array of patterns, textures, colors and exquisite detail to bring up the ultra feminine style.

Theme: FABRICATING THE FEMININE

Fashion is about blending form with function. When that balance is finally struck, art emerges. From the daring to the demure, fabric manipulation techniques make garments into one of a kind pieces of art.

It makes use of an enticing combination of the elegant and the vibrant, feminine colors to really bring out the theme’s aim at the fashion industry.

 “Couture techniques and finishes result in a mix of pieces that are sleek yet sensual, and ultimately feminine.”

Keeping up with times, the collection gives a woman a piece who are not afraid to break conventions and embrace the “new”. Such playful tampering with different techniques of shaping and molding the fabrics is always a welcome change.

 Theme: SAILING TO BYZANTIUM IN A MEGH-GONDALA

The collection is inspired from the medieval Roman empire “BYZANTINE”. The Byzantine costume tradition took its form from the Roman Empire and its color and decorative tradition from the Orient and the Middle East, the tunic and toga for men, and the stola, a type of long dress, for women, as well as their shoes and their hairstyles. The most common type of fabric used for clothes was the silk.

In this collection, the students have used the Meghalaya traditional unstitched garments to replicate the byzantine costume by incorporating both masculine and feminine aesthetics, just as dramatic with ready to wear appearing in a palette of bright colors.

This collection is the expression of elegance and sophistication. Byzantine style with modern glamour to surprise, especially when combined with traditional accessories such as the Crown, pearls, necklace, bracelets and earrings.
