DESIGNER ROHIT VERMA SHOWCASED GRAVE YARD COLLECTION AT INDIA LUXURY STYLE WEEK; SHOWSTOPPERS- ABHIMANYU SINGH & SHARAD KELKAR

Image
"For India Luxury Style Week my collection is very different. The mood board is completely black and I am presenting a graveyard so the collection is very Gothic. It's unique with exciting cuts, lots of chains and I've played with lots of fabrics — nearly seven-eight fabrics like velvet, suiting materials, Lycra, jersey, denim and rugged fabrics, together. It's for the man who is experimental and the entire collection is based on the power of a soul even though I have named it 'Graveyard'. This is my second season with India Luxury Style Week and I'm very excited to be a part of this show. And, of course, I love to get so much love from Bengaluru, so I always get excited to be a part of this show. I will give my best shot and I will only expect their love" says Rohit K Verma about his collection at India Luxury Style Week.
''Designing reflects my personality because I always create clothes according to the season and my mood; whatever comes in …

THE NEW BAWA IN B-TOWN

Image
Often caricatured on celluloid, there’s more to the small but solid Parsi community than quirks and accent. And what we also forget is that quite a few of them have made an invaluable contribution to the Hindi film industry with their artistic vision and compelling talent. The new talent to enter the Bollywood industry, from this sweet small community, is Shreyas Porus Pardiwalla Alias Pardi (as known fondly in the industry now). Shreyas made his debut with the film ‘Yaariyaan’, which not only gave him rave reviews but also a chance to excel in the field in which he holds a degree.
Currently doing a course in method acting from the Jeff Goldberg Studio, Shreyas is next going to be seen in ‘Sweetie Weds NRI’ and by the way what we have heard about his role, it is quite an interesting one with quite few fun shades to it.
