Rustle out your evening dresses and make those salon bookings — Blenders Pride Bangalore Fashion Week takes off today and you’d be missing out on something absolutely decadent if you’re not there...
Themed on Summer and Shower, the fashion week will be on till February 6 at the swanky new Hotel Matthan.
The four-day long event will see several designers including Neeta Lulla, Satya Paul, Anju Modi, Riyaz Gangji, Swapnil Shinde and Monapali showcasing their new line of collection. But, the highlight of this season are international designers like Bo Carter, Richie Rich, and the designer trio — Pamela, Archana and Muraad — who will only add to the opulence of the show!
“We are glad to announce the fourth season of Blender’s Pride Bangalore Fashion Week. With several big designers from India, international designers and new talent, we’ve set new standards this season,” says Sajid Mahajan, marketing director of Dream Merchants, the people behind this show.
Designer Reshma Gangji of LIBAS, who is showcasing in BFW for the first time, says, “Though we’ve had a couple of shows earlier in Bangalore, this is our first time at BFW. Every little thing has been taken into detail, making it look organised. We are glad to be part of this and waiting to see the audience’s response to our new collection, Valley of Flowers.”
Apart from a host of city-based models, international models from Paris and Ukraine too will be walking the ramp. “This is my first visit to India and I’ve already met a couple of models from here and it’s great to interact with them. And, I will be wearing Indian outfits like saris and lehengas, which is quite cool!” says Charlotte, a model.
Choreographers Achala Sachdev, Rahul Dev Shetty and MS Sreedhar will also be instrumental in this year’s BFW. “I will choreograph for Satya Paul, Riyaz Gangji and several others. It’s going to be fun this time,” says Rahul. “A change is important — with several new models and designers being a part of this season, it’s definitely a big platform for them to prove themselves,” says Achala Sachdev.
