The mercury dipped low over Dhaka on December 10, but things were heating up at Dhaka Club as some of the
industry’s most prominent names brought their work to the ramp at a fashion show there, organized by Marico Bangladesh, and sponsored by Kaya Skin Clinic and Aromatic Gold.
The event meant to showcase the make-up sophistry of Farzana Shakil, as well as to introduce the special services of the Kaya Skin Clinic, featured makeup by Farzana Shakil, and chmakeupphy by Shahrukh Amin.
The program, MC’d by Mishu Rahman and Azra Mahmud featured a colour based theme, where a set of designers worked with a specific colour. Saris in jamdani, Katan, and silk hit the catwalk as Ruby Ghuznavi of Arannya Crafts and Chondona Dewan of Chandan’s opened with the Blue queue, which was followed by White, featuring the works of Almira, Anokhee, and Virgo. The common feature of this particular line happened to be in long hemlines, although the overall cuts varied between Mughal chic and a-line. Emdad Hoque, Jatra and Shadakalo came next with Black and Grey, bringing Panjabis, fotua-and-trouser ensembles, and kurta and skirt combos, all in indigenous fabrics. This made way for a rather flamboyant Green queue, featuring the works of Panam, Rang, Shabana Ali, and Teetlie Rahman. Peacock feathers fluttered on fans and fancy updo’s as the models strutted their stuff in a variety of shades, ranging from dark olive, to cool watery chartreuse, and bright emeralds. Pride and Tangail Shari Kutir upped the ante with their Pink and Purple lines in silk and jamdani respectively. The final Red queue featured work by Bibi Russel, Maheen Khan, Aneela Haque and Kuhu, each of whom presented her signature style, leaving no doubt in the minds of the audience that they belonged to the A-list in the scene here.
The show was followed by a raffle draw, where 6 lucky winners walked away with a copy of Farzana Shakil’s “Looks”, right before dinner, and ended on an explosive note with the energetic Mila treating the guests to a rocking time.
