Hot Bollywood model and actress Arshi Khan recently shot with fashion designer Flynn Remedios for his Raksha Bandhan ethnic collection (Male and Female) to be showcased at the FMN Fashion Pageant – the World’s Longest Fashion Show.
The photo shoot by Bollywood photographer Raju Asrani was co-ordinated by IndyaNewz.com Photography. The entire line comprising of over 200 designs will be displayed later in September at the mega event.
Remedios who is the Editor and Publisher of several Bollywood gossip and glamour websites recently turned a new leaf and decided to try his hand at designing clothes – a hobby and passion which he cherished for the last 20-odd years.
Remedios has hand-picked craftsmen from different states to help him in the production of the garments which include hand printed designs using techniques like hand screen printing, hand block printing, hand embroidery, appliqued and tailored cottons and silks. My focus is on affordable occasion wear, explains Remedios stressing that equal focus has been paid to quality control and the fashion element.
On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, as a ritual, a sister ties a colourful rakhi, a sacred thread that symbolizes love between siblings, around her brother’s wrist. The festival starts by performing traditional aarti and concludes with prayers. Moreover, as a part of tradition, a brother presents his sister varied exciting gifts and vows to guide and protect her throughout the life.
The festivity of Raksha Bandhan has a great religious fervor and can be traced in Indian mythology and history over generations.
