IIFA Awards 2017: Taapsee, Dia turn showstoppers for Times Square fashion show

New York: Bollywood actress Dia Mirza and Taapsee Pannu walked as showstoppers for a fashion show held at Times Square here as a part of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA).

The show, organised by e-commerce brand Myntra, took place on Thursday.

Drifting away from conventional shores, the fashion show symbolically “unramped”, where the models expressed their distinct styles while having fun on the go, by walking in groups.

Essentially, presenting “Right To Fashion” irrespective of shape, size, skin tone, the fashion show showcased how every person has a right to their own sense and style of fashion.

“I really love the fusion look that reflects the Indian women on the go, with a quirky saree and a blouse shirt. I think it’s a really nice concept…,” Dia Mirza said in a statement.

Added Taapsee: “I love the concept of ‘Right To Fashion’ where you can style your outfits your own way. I like the way we have done my saree, its conventional and exciting at the same.”

The fashion show also witnessed the presence of known names of Varun Dhawan, Huma Qureshi, Shilpa Shetty and Disha Patani.
