CULTURAL CROSSOVER FASHION SHOW (article first published : 2007-02-16)

A fabulous new cultural crossover Fashion Show – East Meets West – will be held at the Imbizo Conference Centre at the Sibaya Casino and Entertainment World on April 30 and May 1 and is looking for exciting designers to showcase their work.

“East Meets West is dedicated to sharing the rich and diverse culture of Bollywood with a South African audience that is truly as esoteric as the art itself. It is committed to creating a professional platform for local artists of stature by exposing young dancers, actors, singers and models to achieve their dreams even as they aspire to attain international stardom,” says co-organiser, Bhavnesh Narotam.

The project is headed by two emerging energetic young professionals: choreographer Shivani Kara and dancer/performer Bhavnesh Narotam. Both have worked on various shows and want to now add some extra creativity and magic by staging a fashion fusion show with a difference.

Shivani Kara explains: “East Meets West aims to offer audiences productions of the highest international quality. This will instil not only a sense of cross-cultural understanding and pride but also result in the creation of employment opportunities over a cross-section of the population.

“Our vision is for a platform for the entire fashion genre to be displayed in a unique and creative way,” she continues. “The fusion of both Eastern and Western Fashion and entertainment, utilising talent from different race and cultural groups.”

There will be three shows in the Imbizo Conference Centre at Sibaya Casino: Premiere Night (April 30) followed by an afternoon and an evening show on May 1.

The organisers of East Meets West are calling for participants – in particular designers who wish to use this opportunity to showcase their garments. Interested parties should contact Shivani Kara on 083 776 9222 or e-mail” shivanikara@webmail.co.za or Bhavnesh Narotam on 072 349 6165 or email: bhavzn@gmail.com
