Hyderabad, March 5th 2019: United Colors of Benetton launches their SS19 collection with Tamannaah Bhatia, setting the trend this summer with pristine color block range. Pick your color from the wide array because no matter what your choice is, these warm hues and stylish silhouettes are ready to brighten up the season.
Speaking on the occasion Tamannaah said, I have grown up with the United Colors of Benetton and I am here to launch the spring summer collection. Though the roots of United Colors of Benetton is Italian, but they understood the Indian customer and his needs extremely well and are presenting the ones which go with us well. This brand really has comfortable clothing to suit our Indian style. They have quirky caption T-shirts and I am a big fan of their captioned T-shirts. Colors is something we all love and there can't be something more bright than this. They have always sensitised public on socially relevant issues like racism, women empowerment, AIDS, long before the society started to focus on them and that is something I personally relate with. My parents never differentiated between a boy and a girl, I have a brother too, since I grew up in such upbringing, I never felt any less or discriminated, even during film shooting I was treated like anyone else. Regarding women empowerment I feel if a woman is independent, than the family is independent and that is the core of women empowerment. For the young women, my message is it is very important to be you, the authentic you and explore for your true self in life. Actress Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit were a great inspiration to become an actor, even now if I have to watch a old film I watch their films, that makes me basically happy and complete, so I keep watching their films.
Mr Sundeep Chugh, CEO, Benetton India, said, right from inception we have been a very socially responsible brand. As a brand we want to act as a positive enabler in the society and initiate positive conversation, it is important to generate positive growth in the society, when the society grows positively the world a better place. We have done lot of work on Women empowerment in India, because when woman goes out and does well, it's the growth of the family, the family grows and the country grows, if the country grows the universe grows. Current collection seen at Milan is actually inspired by Benetton's own heritage line of 80s, where we had used extensive colors. Also we merged our color pattern with very very important messages around the society. Its a blend of colourful heritage collections with very relevant social messages and that received positive response.
