Sunday evening we attended Fashion for a Cause hosted by Loop Mobile at Jamshed Baba Theatre, NCPA.. And yes, you heard correctly, the house has created one-of-a-kind couture versions of the less expensive pieces. And it's all for a good cause.
India's beauty Delna Mody already caught our eye stepping off her usual route of Jazz Broadway theatre for the pre-launch of The Sound Of Music.
Designers Neeta Lulla, Nishka Lulla, Anita Dongre and Narendra Kumar showcased their interpretations of The Sound of Music. Celebrities and socialites walked the ramp with children from mainstream schools and NGO's in designer outfits.
About the Costumes
The Sound of Music costumes are German-style clothing. There are a variety of ensemble changes for theater productions. Due to the number of costume changes for some characters, preparation is essential for productions. Having dressers or dressing assistants may be necessary, and costume run-throughs should be performed to ensure dressers and cast members are comfortable with the limited time frames for changes.
Maria requires seven costume changes, including her novice habit, two traveling costumes, both simple and pretty dresses, nightdress, and a wedding dress.
Von Trapp requires three costumes - suit, tail uniform and crested flying suit.
Uncle Max requires two multi-piece suits, a double breasted suit, and crested flying suit.
The Baroness requires her distinguished dress.
Nuns require full habit costumes.
Frau Schmidt needs a black housekeeping costume.
Rolfe - uniform.
Nazi soldiers - uniforms.
The Von Trapp children also have several clothing changes, including typical childrenswear of the time, curtain dresses, night clothing, dressed up party apparel, sailor suit costumes and jackets.
