• It was a glittering evening, with three power-packed back to back fashion shows, elegantly and professionally crafted to enhance the creativity, beauty and vibrancy of varied collections by passing out young talent. The ‘INIFD Fashion Day Out’ at The Lalit on Sunday was a slick and chic affair with professional models, showcasing the creations of student designers, hi-tech audio visual effects and a highly appreciative audience, comprising mostly parents of students, adding to the glamour and entertainment quotient. Well known presenter, game show host and actor Aman Verma, branded the ‘Krishna’ of the evening because of his magnetic presence, electrified the audience by invoking the Punjabi spirit.

The smartly crafted ramp, varying patterns of entry of models, and the high decibel music and triple LED displays in perfect sync with the themes of the awe-inspiring collections left the audience spell-bound right through the more than an hour-and-a-half long shows.
