Traditional fashion show with a modern touch in Manipur
Blue Ocean Academy, one of the leading fashion design institutes of Manipur has
taken up the challenge to encourage and promote youth in the field of dress designing
and modeling. The traditional-cum-handloom fashion show "Yenning" meaning "Living
with Nature' provided a platform for young designers and models, to display their
talents. It provided a platform to twenty-two young aspiring models and designers
to flaunt their own creations. "After they complete their certificate course,
we promote the designers and models of the institute by organizing a fashion parade.
We also provide a platform to make-up artist, beauticians as well," said S.K.
Singh, Managing Director, Blue Ocean Academy. "It is a focused collection. We
are showcasing traditional Manipuri costumes which also have modern designs,"
said W. P. Singh, model. Spicing up the show, children walked down the ramp displaying
the unique culture and tradition of the state. The Blue Ocean Academy is engaged
in training youngsters in fashion designing and producing models as well. Fashion
shows like these boost the morale of the design students and bring in newer ideas
to the traditional handloom industry.
