BeTheYou Runway and Entertainment show was a Hi-Fashion event, which included Runway showcases by Kids, Teens, Youth and Women. At this Runway show, not only did we see the cultures from East and West coming together, but also various part of India coming together via Fabrics and Jewels. The program started out by showcasing the Western Gowns paired with matching jewelry showcased by our trained teens elegantly transforming into Indian Princesses wearing colorful Eastern wear. The program also witnessed the very graceful South Silk Sarees beautifully adorned by our ladies and paired with silk threaded bangles. Soon these ladies transformed into stylish Divas as they walked the runway with heavy party wear lehngas paired with rich and bold jewelry. During the program intermission, our Chief Guests Mr Rohit Verma and Ms Priyanka Shah graced the show and addressed our audience. Paparazzi time it was.
While the audience enjoyed watching our Teen and Youth models stylishly posing in Indian Traditional outfits, the Semi Casual Wear in the pallets of olive green came equally rocking the Runway by these top notch Runway models. These were then soon contrasted by bringing on runway the rich orangey-pink hues of collection of silken drapes flown around gracefully by our confident Youth models. The audience loved our adorable little models as well all clad in Indian lehengas, choridaars, Pathani Suit and Kurta/Dhotis as these cuties rocked the Runway with their rehearsed catwalk and amazing confidence. The program was concluded by showcasing the pastel pink collection of cocktail wear paired with Indo-western style lehngas by all of our Youth models.
While our models were busy backstage creating looks and styles for each segment for the show, the audience were kept engaged by bringing to them the dance performances by some up and coming dance schools of Atlanta.
