Mysuru, Sep 17 (IANS) Actresses Elli Avrram and Saiyami Kher walked the ramp for designer Rebecca Dewan at the fourth edition of Mysore Fashion Week in association with the brand Crocs.
Held here on Saturday, the two actresses walked the ramp for Dewan at the second day of the three-day fashion gala which started on September 15.
While Eli looked elegant in a vintage Amauve hued gown with a layer of black net and lace work on it, Siayami was clad in a golden hued bridal dress which looked rather modern and light in weight.
Elli told IANS, here: I loved the garment I am wearing because it’s very light. Because normally these gowns are so heavy and then you have to be careful that you do not step on it and kick it with your legs while moving . But in contrast this was very easy and fun to walk in it.”
Siami Kher’s outfit had the choli in a different cut with usage of Chantilly lace which gave the whole outfit a very different feel.
She said: “Ideally this a bridal wear but it can be mix matched as well because of its colour scheme as well. But also the fact that brides are generally so bogged down because of the weight of the outfit, so that factor has been paid attention to.”
Dewan’s collection saw elegant gowns in blue, mauve hued gowns and eye soothing bridal wear.
Talking about her inspiration for the collection, Dewan spoke about Mysuru having a rich heritage.
“My collection, Belle Ame is inspired by royalty. This entire collection is made out Chantilly which is queen of fabrics. It speaks for its richness. In the olden days royalty used to sport it, and I am showcasing it in Mysore for very reason that Mysore has rich background of royalty,” said Dewan.
Crocs Mysore Fashion Week 2017 will end on September 1 7 and is being held at Radisson Blu Plaza, Mysore.
