The extremely talented students of International College for Girls (ICG) recently celebrated Rajasthan Handloom Fashion Week at Jawahar Kala Kendra in Jaipur. The theme for the event was Asmi, under which various programmes were held.
The event was organized to celebrate the empowerment of women in today’s fast moving competitive world. A fashion show was conducted by the students that brought the rich, vibrant and colourful culture of Rajasthan alive on stage.
Models walked the ramp wearing traditional attires made by the students of GPEM and the fashion designing section. Bright and bold colours which the state is famous for, were extensively used by the student designers for creating wide range of garments that mainly included ghagra-cholis and salwar-kameez.
Khadi was the main fabric out of which all stunning outfits were designed. The reason behind choosing khadi (Linen) was to make audience aware that stylish garments can be made using this fabric, which generally is considered to be old fashioned by the present generation.
The purpose behind keeping the theme traditional was to promote the age old art and craft of Rajasthan. Along with the fashion show various other events were also organized to make it all the more interesting.
