The City Will Witness a Fashion Week With a Purpose, It’s Different This Year | Fashion

“This is a fashion week with a cause” as declared by Mr. Yudhajit Dutta, organizer of the fashion extravaganza called Kolkata fashion and lifestyle week (KFLW). This year the event will have a different story to tell. The most happening fashion and lifestyle week this year has come up with a unique theme and a purpose. Truly the Kolkata fashion and lifestyle week has been responsible both as a platform for Indian fashion trends to project Kolkata as the next fashion capital of India and as an organization for spreading eco-consciousness amongst people.Eco fashion theme of Kolkata fashion and lifestyle week
The year 2010 has been recognized as the UN year of biodiversity. The world is facing an urgent urge to save biodiversity and to preserve our ecology from destruction. Kolkata fashion and lifestyle week thus, has decided to redefine fashion with stylized clothing in natural fibers like jute, cotton, silk and bamboo. With natural fabrics and dyes to set the ramp on fire with its beauty and originality, it is speculated that this fashion and lifestyle week will successfully set eco-fashion trends for the future India. The Kolkata fashion week salutes the weavers and weaves of Bengal and celebrates the traditional fabrics worn here. Participating designers at Kolkata fashion and lifestyle week are expected to create marvels out of natural fabrics, fibers and dyes.This year KFLW will open with the lines of Narendra Kumar created exclusively for the fashion week. The week will showcase JJ Valaya collection at the finale. Prominent fashion designer’s eco-creations including JJ Valaya, Rocky S., Neeta Lulla, Satya Paul, Anita Dongre, Dev r Nil, Rina Dhaka, Abhishek Dutta will adorn the ramp of Kolkata fashion event this year. Kolkata fashion salutes the doyens of both Kolkata and national designers along with promoting fashion industry as a creative canvas for both budding designers and established designers. KFLW also promotes a unique concept of using this event as the stage to raise consciousness through fashion.Remarkably, in the year 2009, the Kolkata fashion and lifestyle launched their fashion collection with the theme of “earth couture”. The year saw magnificent artwork on clothes with natural fabrics by some of the renowned designers of India. This year again this fashion and lifestyle week is playing with the theme of “eco-fashion”. This is an innovative way for raising eco-consciousness on behalf of the fashion world of Kolkata. Notably, the earlier sessions of KFLW has not been that huge a success. Therefore, the organizers this time are keeping no stone unturned for slip in mistakes or failures. The stage for this year’s fashion and lifestyle week thus seems ready to welcome a refreshing change in the traditional fashion of Bengal with natural fibers and dyes.The fashionable population of Kolkata is expecting to see an amalgamation of different Indian styles and traditions created out of natural fibers of Bengal. It is now just a matter of time before a new trend is set in Indian fashion. With the hot summers approaching, eco-fashion is an acceptable theme. Thus i hope that people will welcome this new theme with all open heart and we are going to witness a great show this year.

The Two Major Types of Role Playing Games | Role Playing Games

As the title implies, there are two major categories of role playing game. While these two classifications can sometimes intermingle within a single experience, in general they separate entities which are largely independent of one another.On the one hand you have numerical role playing. This consists of leveling up, acquiring gold, and basically performing tasks to increase the numerical statistics of a character. This is probably the most popular form of role-playing game today, due largely to technical inadequacies found in many modern role playing video games.The problem with a video game RPG is that your character is limited in growth and action, to whatever the programmers thought of when they designed the game. If all they were able to do is give your character the ability to move in two dimensions, then that is all they will be able to do. Even if they thought ahead of time, and programmed your character to be able to do a dance, they couldn’t possibly program in every single dance ever invented, and so you will be stuck doing a jig when what you really wanted to do was a line dance.This is limiting to more than just your own character, it actually makes it difficult for two different characters to interact in any meaningful way. In the old days this was fine, as the only interactions you really had were with dim witted pre-programmed non player characters. Today however a role playing video game can consist of hundreds of characters powered by real live people from around the world. However, the limits of character interaction make it very difficult for two people to interact in any meaningful way.The other type of rpg consists of social role playing. This is actually the oldest, and most natural form of RP because it is something we all do as children, we play make believe. In these games, the numbers do not matter, and all that is important is a good story, interesting characters, and the amount of fun being had.In its most potent form social role-playing is a face to face phenomenon. This can take place either in the context of a game, such as when playing dungeons and dragons, or it can occur in the context of a specific event, such as a Renaissance Faire.It can even be argued that many people engage in role-playing every day, without even realizing it. Whenever you put on clothes to look a certain way, that is a costume, whenever you behave according to a specific set of societal rules, that is an act; these things are inherent to the nature of being human.The problem with modern role playing games is that the technology limits the humanity of the experience. Even in multiplayer experiences, people are cut off from one another by the limits of the programmers.This is not a problem which is going to be resolved easily. In fact, it is probably impossible for current technologies to evolve to the point where we will have total control over an avatar. This does not mean that it will never happen; it is just that controlling a tiny symbolic representation of your character is limited inherently. One day virtual representations of one self will probably make this point obsolete.Until then, people are forced to connect in limited ways, using relative numbers and levels to compare situations, more than personalities and creativity.The one alternative to this seems to be role playing communities, which have sprung up to some, extent as an extended arm of traditional dungeon and dragon style board games. These communities began as simple chat and board style back and forth role-playing, but have evolved with the advent of the social web revolution, to include some rather complex web entities.
