The Grand Finale of the Signature Premiere Fashion Week saw Bangalore based famed designer Manoviraj Khosla closing the curtains of the four day long fashion fiesta. Khosla who is a regular in Van Heusen India Mens Week and also dressed up many Bollywood celebrities, had sourced some of his outfits from weavers in Bihar while sticking to essential western style of ensembles.

Khosla told the media that he would love to dress some top Bengal stars if approached. “Bengal has its own indigenous fashion statement that I would sometime amalgamate in my own signature style. I am happy to see how Kolkata too has evolved a lot when it comes to fashion,” revealed the coveted designer.

With a backdrop of the blue pool water, the models sashayed the runaway in western silhouettes. He played with colours and his collection comprised of modish jackets, coats, cropped pants, tunics and open-shouldered halters in black, grey and white.

The attendance included Australian – Turkish football Tolgay Özbey and his other footballer friends. “The dates for the next season of the fashion week will be announced by next month end,” promised Yudhajit Dutta, director of the fashion week.
