Ritambhara, better known for its glamour and charisma among judges and fashionistas, aims to redefine fashion in a way the fashion mogul Coco Chanel had quoted, “I don’t do fashion, I am Fashion”.

Ritambhara attracts people from all across the country. It is a great platform to showcase your talent and get that adrenaline rush.

What started off as a dream for a group of fashion enthusiasts back in 1964, has become one of the country’s coveted fashion competitions for students and fashion enthusiasts. Looking forward to the 54th edition of Ritambhara.
