Eid fashion, according to up & coming designers
Thirteen up and coming designers, all students of Shahrukh Shahid, displayed their Eid-special designs at Drik Gallery in Dhanmondi over the last weekend.
Titled 'Nabin Designers Eid Fashion,' the inauguration of the exhibition was well attended by Kaniz Almas, CEO of Persona; designer Emdad Hoque; media personality Sharmin Lucky; singer Fahmida Nabi and designer Shahruk Shahid.
"I loved what I saw," said Fahmida.
"All of the designs are impressive," said Kaniz.
The participants are from the 11th batch taught by designer Shahrukh Shahid.
"Towards the end of every batch, I usually make it a point to do a show," said Shahid. "I believe that at least 8 out of the 13 students will take fashion designing professionally. In whatever time I get with them, I try my best to instill in them what I've learnt in 18 years," he added.
Eleven female and two male students attended the course and the exhibition featured 600 designs by them.
"All of us are from different backgrounds. But we share a common interest, that is designing,” said Nazmun Nahar Shikha, one of the participating designers.
The exhibition highlighted local materials and fabrics. Designs included traditional and informal fatua, panjabi, shalwar-kameez, saree etc. All designs have that touch of festivity and have been crafted keeping the occasion of Eid in mind.
Among the designers, Habiba enjoys the karchupi works, whereas Zahin enjoys cutting and embroidery,
Nus Sanjida Zaman said, "Eid is all about bright colours and so the abundance of colours is noticeable at this display.”
