Infamously known actresses and model, Gauhar Khan was the show showstopper. She wore Sneh Dalmia, one of the designers whose clothes she showcased. “India has a lot of talent, Indians can do it all, we just needs a platform across the globe to showcase what we are about,” said Khan when asked in an interview why it is so important to promote and spread Indian culture.
All of the clothing varied in design and style, however, all of them displayed a sense of original perspective to clothing. Inspiration can come from anywhere for these designers. For example, Shadangule mentioned that she is inspired by nature. Therefore, some of her pieces resemble things found in nature such as waterfalls or tree bark which explains some of the flowy items she had in her collection as well as a patterned item that did indeed resemble tree bark. Churiwalias well appreciates everything she sees and recreates it in her clothing. Smita Vasant was the Los Angeles event manager, coordinating the entire show here. Sponsors were Reema Khan of Reema Beauty and Andy Shah of Andy Shah Photography.
