KATwalk--Fashion show at M.I.T in Nov 09

Shubrah.com was invited to participate in KATwalk, a fashion show at M.I.T, Cambridge MA, on Nov 11th, along with other boutiques and designers. The event is an annual show that is organized by students at M.I.T and is a fundraiser for a worthy non-profit that supports children's issues called CASA. The venue, is a glorious hall, part of Walker Memorial Building along Memorial drive with beautiful high ceilings supported by massive pillars and giant paintings as a backdrop on the walls.

There is a balcony surrounding the entire hall, where the students gathered and cheered the proceedings below. The catwalk was set up on the main floor, with front row chairs as well as tables for guests for desserts and beverages. We showed our collection modeled by 20 college students from MIT, with great music, choreography and ambience, all created by the students.

The MCs for the evening, introduced Shubrah.com as an emerging Boston area design company to be watched for fusion as well as environmentally conscious design. The music they picked for this part of the show was fusion, some western, bollywood and bhangra, all mixed live by the student DJ. The show was a great success, with a live auction as well as two very talented groups of MIT students dancing and singing for the audience. There was a segment called "MIT couture" that was created by students, a tongue-in-cheek take on the clothing with college insignia, sold on the campus. The audience applauded in delight, at the hip music, choreography and at their friends who modeled during the course of the evening. A wonderful event, worth attending again, next year!
