Actress Tisca Chopra will turn showstopper for designer Kavita Bhartia at the Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) 2017.
The five-day gala started on Wednesday. The 28th edition of AIFW, in association with Maybelline New York, is being held at the NSIC Grounds, in Okhla, here.
“Kavita Bhartia’s clothes have an easy effortless chic with a luxe finish. Her looks can be worn many times over in multiple ways… That’s what I love about her label,” Tisca said in a statement.
Bhartia will be presenting her latest collection inspired by iznik pottery — a decorated ceramic art from Turkish lands, on Friday. The range is full of feminine silhouettes with a perfect blend of Indian contemporary handwork and modern appeal.
Bhartia describes Tisca as a “wonderful personality with grace”.
“She looks beautiful in our ensembles. We are excited to have her as the showstopper,” she said.
In all, 110 designers — on the runway and stall area — are taking part in the event.
The theme of the entire gala is ‘India Modern Festive’. It will open with the re-interpretation of chanderi, and close with a guru-shishya (Master and Disciple) presentation by designers JJ Valaya and Alpana-Neeraj.
On the professional front, Tisca is busy shooting of short film titled “Chutney”, which peeps into the world of the Indian middle class.
