MUMBAI: Last Saturday, Sophia College saw what will be known as the first edition of ‘The Great Indian Pillow Fight’. At their annual festival, Kaliedoscope, scores of young collegians assembled on Sophia College Grounds on Saturday, bowled over by the thought of taking part in the First Indian Pillow Fight ever, a concept put together by Portico, the premium home fashion brand.
Pillows were hurled down on an eager batch of youngsters and the girls lashed at each other as soon as they got their catch. There was no stopping the crowd, exhausted as they seemed, the girls wrestled with gusto.
With a special stylish bedding collection designed especially for the 24x7 generation, Portico, New York realizes the youth have frenzied lifestyles. The free spirit populace was thus given a chance to relive memories and bond with friends their way, and what would be better than a high spirited, crazy Pillow Fight. Spirits soared as feathers flew through the air, amid shrieks of college girls excited to be given full license to attack their peers in a good ol’fashioned pillow flight.
Speaking on the event, Arun Bhawsingka CEO, Portico New York said, “We are glad that we have connected with the new generation. And the platform which we have used to relate to them is quite innovative, and we are proud of that. We are sure that the collection for these young customers will be appreciated and be the most preferred in this segment.”
Commenting on the occasion, one of the Sophia’s students that participated in the fight said, “This is by far to have such a great pillow fight with so many people and so many pillows. I really hope other colleges catch on to the idea because I’d love to do it again!”
