    Hyderabad: For the first time, the Most Happening Solo Collection of Lakme Fashion Week by INIFD Student Designer Sabah Khan was displayed at the InterNational Institute of Fashion Design (INIFD) Hyderabad. Sabah Khan presented a rustic down to earth line quaintly titled ‘Tuk Tuk’ which is another word for the Tangewala or Rickshawala – a unique collection to watch out and see how a popular public transport inspired Designer Sabah Khan.

    Taking forward her previous collection’s theme, ”No Class” inspired by the slums of Dharavi, designer Sabah Khan this time dedicated her new collection ”Tuk Tuk” to the ”rickshaw walas” at the Lakme Fashion Week held in Mumbai this March.

    Sabah had taken the fashion scene by storm with her debut collection ”No Class” at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer and Resort 2010. The collection had earned her an appreciation letter from Prince of Wales. She had received encouragement and a personal acknowledgement from the Royal family of United Kingdom for her previous collection ‘No Class’ for highlighting this issue of poverty in an unconventional manner. Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall was touched and appreciated Sabah Khan for her fashion line based on Dharavi – the largest slum in Asia. Sabah’s collection ‘No Class’ was the most appreciated collection of Gen Next category at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2010 which truly reflected the spirit of Dharavi, which was valued by the Royal Highness Prince of Wales.

    Student of INIFD,  Sabah’s Solo Collection ‘Tuk Tuk’ created magic on the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week this year.   Bollywood actress Yuvika Chaudhary was the showstopper of the collection ‘Tuk Tuk’. Yuvika, co-star of Govinda in her latest release “Naughty at 40”, is famous for her role in ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘Toh Baat Pakki’. Yuvika danced down the ramp in a wired hand painted lehenga and racer back choli with the words “Keep Distance” written on it. Big Boss – season 4 fame and a Television actress Dolly Bindra gracefully adorned the Designer garment by Sabah Khan at Lakme Fashion Week.

    INIFD Student Sabah displayed her designer collection at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2011 at Hotel Grand Hyatt Mumbai and was hugely appreciated by the national and international media, buyers, merchandisers and the glitterati.

    INIFD Student Sabah Khan commented on her inspiration and said, “As I travelled daily, the pastel uniforms of the drivers, the bright colored insides of the rickshaw walls, the typical curve of the vehicle made a creative impression on my mind. I strongly believe that fashion comes out of the most unpredictable places and perceive fashion as depiction of various aspects of life as they unfold. I am quite observant about things around me and love bringing creativity in it giving it a meaning and shape. All my designs are quite contemporary and go with people from all walks of life.”
