Now, as part of the winter extravaganza, the District Administration and Department of Tourism have organised a fashion show during the Open Street Festival to be held on Dec. 30 on Devaraja Urs Road. The fashion show has been organised to showcase the rich culture of Karnataka with models walking the ramp draped in Mysuru Silk sarees manufactured by Karnataka Silk Industries Corporation (KSIC).

Speaking to Star of Mysore, Tourism Deputy Director H.P. Janardhan said that this year the focus was to promote Mysuru Silk saree and to create awareness on waste management.

The organisers have roped in city-based designer Kaushal Vishu, who had recently organised Mysuru Fashion Utsav at the Golf Club, to conduct the event. The fashion show will feature three rounds during which the models will walk with garments made out of recycled waste in the first round, next round features the Mysuru Silk and in the third round, the models will walk the ramp with hand-painted silk sarees.  While the female models will wear the saree, the male models will wear silk dhotis, shalyas  and shirts.
