Fashion & Music
The 1960’s was an era of colours not only on the Indian silver screens but in fashion too. It was about flamboyance and magnificence. The screening of Mughal-e-Azam in late 1959 marked the commencement of colours on celluloid. Bollywood actors like Mumtaz, Saira Bani, Asha Parekh, Sharmila Tagore, Dev Anand and Shashi Kapoor were seemed to have made most of the opportunity by tapping into the conscious and distinctive styling and they played major part in influencing fashion for over a decade.
We will be re-creating that era of Bollywood and vibrant colours and fashion as Praza complements that perfect Bollywood setting and with the added twist that everyone has to comply with a 1950-60’s attire, makes this evening indulgent and fun!
