• Imaginative creativity and zestful spirit, reflected through 24 inspiring collections pieced together by a batch of 38 passing out student designers of the Chandigarh centre of International Institute of Fashion Designing, were the hallmark of the INIFD Fashion Day Out – a set of three exquisite back to back star-studded fashion shows - presented as part of the institute’s annual passing out gala at The Taj Chandigarh on Saturday evening.

From Ethnic to Western to Indo Western, Street Look, Funky to very wearable garments, the designer collections were sashayed on the ramp by top models.


Adding to the glamour quotient on the occasion was, among others, Kawaljit Singh, a veteran Bollywood fashion designer, credited with designing for the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha, Madhuri Dixit and Shah Rukh Khan, and a Big Boss contestant. He was presented a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Style Icon of India Award was conferred on Imam Siddique, another Big Boss star and popular TV show host of MTV Style Check UTV Stars and Channel V Fashion Police, for his contribution to Indian fashion industry.

Mrs India Earth 2016 Priyanka Khurrana Goyal and Miss Commonwealth Asia Pacific 2016 Shweta Raj were also honoured by INIFD.

The show was produced by ELFA Finishing Academy and choreographed by ace choreographer Lovell Prabhu. The gorgeous looks of the models were created by renowned hair and make-up artist team of Ritu Kolentine.
