Redo Times brought the third edition of Feronia Fashion Night in association with Avantika University, Ujjain and It by It professionals, Jaipur. The fashion show was held on 1st September 2019 at The Grand Bhagwati Palace, Indore. Feronia Fashion Night is an initiative to raise awareness on the very sensitive topic of gender equality and LBTQ inclusiveness. It is a first of its kind event that showcases Androgynous Fashion – A form of fashion that focuses on breaking the archaic gender stereotype.
This is the only event in India that features all the models from the LGBTQ community providing the models with a platform to showcase their talents and get further opportunities. The models were presented with the gift hampers from Repechage India, a premium global skincare brand and provided makeup services by ShikhaHolkar from Shades Salon Indore, the top hair and make – up studio in Madhya Pradesh.
“Dream is an expensive ornament to adorn your hope”
Feronia Gen-Next was launched with precisely the same idea in mind. It is a platform for young and talented student designers who aspire to showcase their collections alongside prominent designers of India and abroad in front of all the shutterbugs from the media and eminent personalities of the industry.
Students of SDPS college Indore – Tanisha Ansari, Durgeshwari Goud and Shalini Sharma, made the best use of the opportunity to present her collection at the show. Titled “Magical Soul”, their collection revolved around the supernatural beings of Germanic mythology. The human-shaped white beings were the outcome of imagination that will probably take us into the world of elves and their supernatural beauty.
The collection was a magical compilation of haute couture garments and depicted the souls of these magical spirits. A literal definition “Out of the World”, their collection took the audience in a different mythological realm. The audience, media and designers present at the event unanimously approved of the collection by the team of these three phenomenal designers and showered their appreciation through one of the biggest applause of the night.
