It’s not unusual to find supermodels on the ramp at a fashion show, but when you find them sitting in the front row, dressed to the nines, you tend to do a double-take! And that’s what happened on Day 2 of the India Kids Fashion Week when I spotted the leggy modes Alesia Raut, Ruhi Chaturvedi, Shonal Rawat, Iris Maity and Ricky Banerjee, sitting pretty in the front row.
It turns out that Alesia’s son, Mark, was walking the ramp for the first time for the watch brand, Zoop. When my colleague Sue Ellen Castellinowent backstage to get a video byte from him, the shy young boy clammed-up and didn’t utter a word. But on the ramp he walked with confidence and elan!
Model-turned-actress Iris Maity was happy to pose for pictures and answer the media’s questions about her debut film, Tutiya Dil, which is currently on screens across the country. This is a light-hearted rom-com about breakups!
However, the real star of the event was the animated character Shrek, who ambled down the runway with the excited kiddy models. Clearly, of all the show-stoppers at India Kids Fashion Week, this one was the most apt.
