KATHMANDU: After three days of girls ruling The Himalayan Times TGIF Nepal Fashion Week ‘09 ramp, on the fourth day — September 10 — it was the boys’ turn to shine and dazzle.
Well-tailored jackets in various styles were the highlight of Monalisa’s collection. From simple corduroy to self-printed and shimmery, the fabrics used enhanced the stylish look. With two collections, the Indian Terrain showcased its wide range of men’s line. From waistcoats to cardigans to checked shirts to slim suits, the designs covered the wide range from casual to semi-formal to formal clothing.
The gowns of various silhouettes with a touch of glitter by Khusboo Dangol from Chhabi ‘Image of Women’ boutique were in stark contrast to the simplicity of men’s clothing. The Patterns of Life — the Applique with its mini skirts, harem trousers and a mix of vibrant colours gave a touch of ‘go spunky’ attitude, while Doll’s House again brought Barbie back to the ramp with flowing to mini dresses with unique necklines and backs. Actor Vinay Shrestha and model Reecha Sharma walked the ramp for this line.
The night also presented the story of linen with three collections by Linen Club designed by Sourav Acharya, Anisha Khadgi and Gyani Shova Maharjan. From the Greek and Egyptian robes of primitive time to the present day flamboyance and style, the versatility of linen fabric was there for everyone to see.
The shows till now have gone without a glitch and the credit for the flow of models with the right walk and attitude in sync with the music goes to none other than choreographer Prashant Tamrakar. The music was handled by DJ Shishir and model coordination was done by Ayushi Shah.
