Mumbai, October 28, 2023: Whistling Woods International (WWI) School of Fashion & Costume Design in association with Bombay Times Fashion Week 2023 (BTFW’23) presented a dazzling showcase of fashion brilliance by the students. The highlight of the event was the presence of renowned actress and WWI alumna, Aahana Kumra, who graced the runway as the showstopper in an exquisite outfit inspired by the latest parachute trend, exuding a sense of fierceness, craftsmanship, and contemporary relevance.

The fashion showcase was a triumphant celebration of artistry, innovation, and the boundless talent of the WWI fashion students. The students’ creations paid homage to diverse themes and eras. ‘Channelling 1970s Vibes’ featured denim ensembles with floral prints, ‘Agaami’ drew inspiration from the Indian festive season, and ‘Nyx’, named after the goddess of darkness, showcased the eternal power of women through a striking colour palette, mischievous details, and bold silhouettes. In a tribute to India’s skilled weavers, the students designed ‘Tapestry and Weaving’, which boasted colourful rick racks and vibrant hues against a muted white base. ‘Imperium’ portrayed the circle of life, death, and rebirth through bold and vivacious designs.

The students, under the mentorship of Jewellyn Alvares, HOD, WWI School of Fashion & Costume Design, crafted a stunning array of outfits that reflected their creativity, passion, and a deep understanding of contemporary fashion trends.

Meghna Ghai Puri, President of WWI, expressed her pride in the students’ accomplishments, stating, “WWI has always been a beacon of creative excellence, and the talent showcased at BTFW 2023 by our students is a testament to our commitment to nurturing the future leaders of the fashion industry.”

Sharing about featuring as the showstopper for her alma mater, Aahana Kumra, actor and WWI alumna, said, “I was both honoured and thrilled to walk the runway for WWI School of Fashion & Costume Design at Bombay Times Fashion Week ’23. It’s a privilege I gladly embraced for my alma mater. The professionalism and quality showcased by the students were outstanding, setting a high standard in the global fashion landscape. This, without a doubt, ranks among my best experiences.”

The event was a resounding success, drawing attention not only to the students’ craftsmanship but also to the potential they hold for shaping the future of fashion.
