In today’s world when online shopping has become hugely popular, it all about how good a particular garment looks in a photo. Gone are the days when shopping was a social event. So, when Desire Creations decided to hold an exhibition and fashion show to celebrate their first anniversary, it was such a welcome change from the usual norm.
On Sunday, 28 May, the Function Room at the Liverpool Catholic Club glimmered and shone with fabulous apparel and exquisite jewellery. Traditional Indian attire has gone through a metamorphosis with the introduction of various fabrics and the infusion of western cuts. Shilpy Jain, the designer behind Desire Creations has ensured that all her pieces are in accordance with the latest trends and fashion.
The fashion was presented in two categories—traditional and contemporary. While the ethnic wear focussed on attire appropriate for all traditional events; from something glamorous, yet understated for a Mehendi or Sangeet to something opulent and elaborate for a wedding. These included lehengas, ghaghras and sarees with dupattas that had intricate embroidery and handwork. The contemporary round displayed garments in different textures, that were smart and trendy. The show stopping pieces in both the rounds were worn by Abbey Singh, who was the finalist at the 2013 Mrs India Australia.
The other models were Angel Miglani, Raman Singh, Kavita Mishra, Tania Sharma and Sirat Singh. All the models looked beautiful as they sashayed down the ramp displaying the beautiful fashionable pieces. Inderpreet Kaur from Beauty Monks ensured that the make-up and hair do was flawless. It is no wonder then that each of the models created a very pretty picture. The traditional cake-cutting ceremony followed the fashion parade. There was also a beautiful dance performance by Shikha Jain.
Apart from the garments worn by the models there was a large selection of clothes, jewellery and other accessories like clutches and joothis for the attendees to shop from. Discounts were being offered on most items as a thank you gesture from the Desire Creations team. The event also created a platform for Vivek Singha and Monika Manhas to raise awareness about FoxG1 and their son Kush, who is suffering from the rare genetic disorder. Kudos to Ranju Saini and Shilpy Jain who are joint business owners and their support team who put in many days of hard work to make this event a great success.
