Sitara 2018 PRAYANA | प्रयाण | PROGRESSION

Bella reviews Sitara 2018

Last night, Sitara put on its ninth annual fashion show by the Pondside of St. Andrews. With the aim of representing Asian fusion fashion in an area that is mostly homogenous, Sitara was a show unlike any others hosted in St. Andrews

This year’s theme was PRAYANA | प्रयाण | PROGRESSION, with the goal of exploring “the progression of magnificent Asian design through the ages of ancient empires.” The stereotyping of Asian cultures, and the inappropriate assumption that all of Asia can be defined as a single culture was proved highly inaccurate throughout the show. Shocker- not all Asians are the same.

When walking into the venue, there were bars on each side of the tent, and the runway stretching through the majority of the area. There was sushi and janettas inside, with plenty of food and beverage stands outside as well. Attendees outfits were varied and welcoming, from traditional Indian dress, to Asian inspired robes and cocktail dresses worn with sneakers, there was a sense of diversity within the style of the crowd.

The show was scheduled to begin at 8:00, and, to no surprise, was a fashionably fifteen minutes late to the start. However, the beginning of the show was definitely entertaining, as once the lights went down, the music slowed, and the models began to creep onto the stage, everyone stopped their conversations, took their snapchat out, and were eager to see what this years show would entail.

The fashion was diverse, with bright colors, embroidery, sheer fabrics, and range of styles for both the men and women, proving that Asian fashion stretches a wider range then one may think. The enteric beading in combination with lace was hard to ignore, and easy to respect. The vibrant colors of the men’s shirts striking, especially in combination with the red and purple lights employed throughout the show. The show was far from your typical ‘models walking down the runway’ type of fashion show. Scattered throughout the show, the models would disappear, and dancers would replace them. The incredible choreography had the crowd going ‘YASS GIRL,’ while screaming and clapping.

The first half of the show was much more intense, as models avoided direct eye contact, and did their absolute best to keep a straight face, despite their friends yelling and screaming from the crowd. The second half however, was a lot more relaxed, as models began to break away from their emotionless looking faces, and begin to bring more colour and animation into their performance, paralleling the lively colors and designs that they modeled.

My favorite look by far, was by “Relax Baby Be Cool” as one of the models stepped out in peacock patterned, red and gold pant suit with a white lace bra underneath. The look was the right combination of both modern and traditional fashion, seemingly the aim of the theme for this years show.

Another show highlight, was when several of high end designer, Stella McCartney’s looks were shown while the DJ played a remix of Justin Timberlake’s “My Love,”- iconic. The music throughout the entirety of the event was the perfect mix of more traditional Asian dance songs and modern pop and rap, making sure that one could singalong. While the show came to a close, the music continued, allowing the event to immediately transition into the after party.

Overall, I thought the show was a success, and although the attendance was not as high as FS or Dont Walk, it is definitely an event worth going to, regardless of your culture or interest in fashion.

  1. Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. Thanks a lot for the helpful posting. It is also my opinion that mesothelioma cancer has an particularly long latency period of time, which means that the signs of the disease might not emerge until 30 to 50 years after the first exposure to asbestos fiber. Pleural mesothelioma, which is the most common kind and has effects on the area around the lungs, will cause shortness of breath, torso pains, and a persistent coughing, which may lead to coughing up blood vessels.

  3. I’ve learned a number of important things via your post. I might also like to mention that there may be situation that you will obtain a loan and never need a cosigner such as a National Student Aid Loan. When you are getting a borrowing arrangement through a standard loan company then you need to be willing to have a cosigner ready to assist you. The lenders are going to base that decision on the few elements but the greatest will be your credit score. There are some loan companies that will as well look at your work history and make a decision based on this but in almost all cases it will depend on your scores.

  20. Oh my goodness! I’m in awe of the author’s writing skills and ability to convey intricate concepts in a concise and concise manner. This article is a real treasure that earns all the applause it can get. Thank you so much, author, for sharing your knowledge and providing us with such a priceless asset. I’m truly grateful!

  21. Thanks for your submission. I also believe that laptop computers have become more and more popular today, and now are usually the only sort of computer used in a household. This is because at the same time potentially they are becoming more and more very affordable, their computing power keeps growing to the point where there’re as effective as pc’s from just a few years back.
