NIDA MAHMOOD for DEIVEE:
She is known as the kitsch queen of India Fashion. She presented an innovative active wear in collaboration with “Deivee” (an export house based out of Bangalore, India). She revived activewear by creating it out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. The star attraction in her show included various sports celebrities like Milind Soman.
It wasn’t only models who were seen on the ramp during the show but there were some real life heroes as well who attracted eye balls. Mann Kaur, a 101-year-old runner who is known for holding the record for running 100 metres category did a little jog on the ramp. Also seen was Dolly Singh, a plus size Yoga teacher who walked the ramp gracefully sporting the collection. V Nanammal, a 98 year old yoga teacher, and Anshu Jensempa, a world record holder for climbing the Mt Everest twice within a week also made their fashion week ramp debut. Fashion, age, fitness surely go hand in hand! A big salute to all the heroes!
