Galore, Maitreyi College
At Galore, the team and its costumes have tried to glorify the spectacular Tiger stripes with vibrant golden stripes on black ensembles. The act uses various banners like “Ban Tiger Trade” and “No Skinning, No Poaching, No Hunting.” According to the team, the ultimate intention is to make the audience aware of the suffering of this big cat, and glorify its existence.
U S Kiranmai, President of Galore says. “The complete wardrobe, and props have been made by the team in college premises and it appeals to many because it emphasizes on the theme of tigers and is relevant in every sense. Also, we make sure that we do not include excessive dramatics in our show and stick to showcasing a proper fashion show sans any sort of dance or drama. At practice we focus the most on walk and coordination and no practice is conducted with even a single member missing. Team’s unity is the key to our success this year.
