World University of Design students joined with DLF Avenue, Saket, New Delhi, to welcome festivities by showcasing the latest array of festive attires by in-house designer brands, including Label Ritu Kumar, mulmul and Frontier Raas, on Saturday, October 8th, 2022.
The ramp was carved out of the Social Steps Commons on DLF Avenue. Students crafted the makeup, styling, and choreography to inspire fashionistas and walk-ins alike with their freshness and creativity. The event saw audiences from all age groups enthralled with hues of rich reds, flamboyant lime, earthy greys and mysterious blacks dominating the walkway.
By walking the ramp for renowned brands, these young students of WUD aspired to bring forth the idea of inclusive fashion for all shapes and sizes, setting aside the unrealistic fashion model image. Donning fluid silhouettes embellished with remarkable confidence, the students sashayed down the steps inspiring everyone present there to wear their substance. The message was loud and clear that Gen Z is all about ‘being the change.
Filled with pride, Vice Chancellor of the World University of Design, Dr Sanjay Gupta, stated, “It is incredible how these young students have taken up the ramp by storm and have owned up the whole premises with their electrifying energy. It is so precious to come forward hand in hand with a prestigious platform like DLF Avenue and with labels that have had their legacy in the past so many decades. It is a proud moment indeed.”
DLF Avenue and its in-house designer brands have been luring aspirants and fashion connoisseurs alike for years. WUD students managed to add a new dimension to this genre through their makeup, styling, choreography and energy.
