Last Saturday seven girls from Madurai made a mark with their prêt line at a national level fashion show held in Chennai. The eighth edition of Vibes 360 Degrees showcased over 500 ensembles designed by 100 fashion students from all over the country. Among them were 36 designer dresses from Madurai that stormed the ramp.

Every set of garments was theme-based and the girls also created the ramp-music and mood-story.

“It was heartening to see students from smaller towns taking part in the event. The collection from Madurai was received with much applause,” beams Thangarajeshwari, Head of Madurai Centre, Dream Zone School of Creative Studies. The girls completed their Master Diploma course in fashion designing here and were part of the annual design contest of Dream Zone (CADD Centre).
