Nakshtra - The Fashion Society

In the evolving world of fashion, self-expression and creativity find a home in the hearts of those who dare to think beyond the boundaries of conventional attire. We proudly present the Fashion Society of Hindu College, Nakshatra with the resounding tagline "Guts, Glory and Fame" founded by the famous Model/Actor Arjun Rampal in the year 1990. Nakshatra- an inclusive community that fosters a passion for fashion, encourages artistic expression and provides a supportive environment for students to explore the dynamic realm of style.


"Nakshatra" aims to bring together students who share a common interest in fashion and style. By establishing a vibrant community, we strive to create an environment where members can connect, exchange ideas, and inspire one another. Through regular training sessions, meetups, workshops and collaborative projects, we foster a sense of belonging, enabling individuals to explore their fashion inclinations freely. In an era marked by environmental consciousness, the society recognizes the importance of promoting sustainable practices within the fashion domain.


Through awareness campaigns, discussions, and events, we aim to educate our members and college students on ethical fashion choices and responsible consumerism. By empowering individuals to make informed decisions, we strive to contribute to a more sustainable future for the fashion industry.

Moreover, Nakshatra's member Mr. Puneet Kathuria serving as the President of the society believes that fashion has no boundaries and encourages open-mindedness, respect, and inclusivity among the society members and college students as well. The Society serves as a platform for students to enhance their fashion-related skills and broaden their horizons. Workshops on fashion illustrations and styling provide valuable hands-on experiences, equipping members with practical knowledge and empowering them to pursue their passion for fashion beyond college. We organize various events enabling students to gain insights into the professional world of fashion. Nakshatra believes in celebrating and showcasing the talent of our members. Nakshatra hosts and takes part in fashion shows, competitions, exhibitions, and photo shoots, offering a platform for students to present their creative visions to a wider audience. These events provide opportunities for aspiring designers, models, photographers and stylists to gain exposure, build portfolios and connect with industry professionals. Additionally, we collaborate with other college societies and local businesses to organize collaborative projects that promote cross-disciplinary creativity.

The Fashion Society of Hindu College "Nakshatra" is a vibrant community that celebrates the fusion of creativity, self-expression, and personal style. By providing a platform for students to connect, learn, and grow, we aim to nurture a new generation of fashion enthusiasts who are not afraid to push the boundaries of convention. Through a diverse range of activities, events, and initiatives, we empower our members to explore their passion for fashion while promoting sustainability, skill development, and inclusivity.

The first show by the Nakshatra team for the term of 2022-23, with the production of ‘Karma’, depicting the perfect blend of the bold colour palette in the hues of teal and purple, was performed at the INGLU Global University, where the team participated in its first competition of the year and bagged the first position as well.



Vivid Illusions, the name itself is self-defining. Constituting conceptions about what we can see and what we cannot, what is visible to us and what is not, illusions take the center stage when we talk about the phrase - 'more than meets the eye'. Vivid Illusions, our production, consists of outfits that are designed to deceive the eyes of the spectator and to mix and match in a way that the entire process of amalgamation becomes invisible. It was the first production for the tenure of 2022-23. A very high-end production by team Nakshatra, being completely self-sustainable (as all of our productions are) from the outfits, and the monologues to the music, everything is done by the society members themselves.

The theme for Nakshatra's annual production-Eternal Sacrifice rests on the portrayal of transgressing and regressing emotions through the shades of red and golden. The metaphorical display of agony, sacrificial love, and wickering away in the faith of another form the core emotions of our production. Red, the darker colour out of the two is a countenance of golden, the lighter and calmer colour that meets the hidden anger and intensity of red with tranquillity and serenity. The love of the people around us, despite being surrounded by heads and bodies is what fuels the human spirit, the daily sacrifices that we make and suffer, the sacrifices of desires and wishes, that is what we strive to show. Eternal Sacrifice is the fresh and currently prevailing production being used by the team Nakshatra for various competitions and performances, garnering attention and achievements from all.

The pictures above are of Mr. Puneet Kathuria, a remarkable male model serving as the President (2022-23) of the society. In an astonishing display of talent and dedication, he has managed to secure a staggering 19 individual titles within a mere span of 3 months. Puneet's achievements and accolades are a testament to his remarkable skills and captivating presence.

He possesses the most captivating walk among all the colleges within the Delhi University. He is a true inspiration to aspiring models and a shining star in the realm of fashion at Delhi University.

Nakshatra organised its annual fest Panache ‘23, conducted under the aegis of Mecca 23, with two competitions: Mr and Ms Panache and Azure: The Group Fashion Competition.
