Mumbai: After a long and tedious search, Goan designer label Randell Gomes has chosen NRI model Nancy Singh as the model of the month for their Indo-Western Summer Collection 2014. Almost 200 models were auditioned and finally 3 models have made it to the prestigious shoot for an enviable collection.
Model and actress Nancy Singh is of Indian origin but has lived for several years with her family who migrated to the US of A. She is an established model in the USA and has done several ramp shows and other events abroad.
The theme and concept of designer Randell Gomes Indo-Western Summer Collection 2014 is “Affordable, Wearable & Comfortable Fashion for Women of all Sizes and Shapes”. Says Randell Gomes, “For most people fashion is either very expensive or inconvenient or uncomfortable. And that is what is unfortunately portrayed at the fashion weeks and at fashion shows. For me, fashion is affordable, wearable and comfortable and yet fashionable.”
Designer Randell Gomes in association with an event company has announced a beauty pageant Mr & Miss Fashionable India to promote the concept of comfortable, affordable and wearable fashion, which will be announced at a later date.
Last year Randell Gomes had launched a pret collection called Mumbai Fashion Street Collection which is inspired by Mumbai’s fashion street at Dhobitalao in South Mumbai. This year too he has introduced a new line of wearable and affordable clothes for women of all shapes and sizes under the same name.
Randell Gomes who was born in Goa but grew up at Dhobi Talao near the CST Railway Station and was fascinated by the variety and color of clothes available very cheaply on Fashion Street. Says Randell Gomes, “My sisters would go to Fashion Street every weekend. When I was a student at St Xaviers college, we would visit Fashion Street to buy bermudas, shorts and T -shirts which were available for as little as Rs 30 per piece. It was simply fabulous. Most of the stuff available at Fashion Street were export rejects and some of them were re-cycled clothes. But the joy we experienced getting an outfit within our limited budget was tremendous. At that time, shopping was fun and a great pleasure. With my new range of pret outfits for men and women, I want to make cheap fashionable clothes available for everyone.
