Ti’s the season of talented designers to showcase their amazing creations and we must admit that they are doing a great job already. From Archana Rao, Huemn or Gaurang Shah on Day 2 to Nishka Lulla or or Nikhil Thampi on Day3, we have the rundown for some of the standout looks straight from the ramp.
The collection by Wendell Rodricks was a blend of traditional regalia like, khadi kurtas, churidars, or unique sari designs with long cape blouses to fusion numbers like dhoti- jumpsuit-sari and more.
For Quirkbox it was not fashion, but art and they made it clear with their quirky creations in pastel shades with floral motifs and breezy fabric.
Humen gave a an ultra-chic twist to the activewear or better known as Athleisure with jewel hued velvet jackets and yes, we simply loved them.
Gaurang’s Calico collection refelected a touch of drama with Mughal floral motifs blended with paithani patterns. Royal sari drapes from 12 states along with gowns seeking inspiration from the Belle Epoch era, it was a mesmerizing moment on the runway.
Archana Rao’s line which she named “A petticoat” was full of ruffles, sheers, asymmetrical hemlines and clean cuts on pastel shades just perfect for th4e summers.
While we loved the debutante designer Jayanti Reddy’s collection that exuded royal elegance with vegetable dye print. With a fusion of traditional and contemporary silhouettes, and a gorgeous showstopper like Aditi Rao Hyadri her collection was indeed an overhang.
“Find your wild” line by Sneha Arora was all about apparels with comfort fit, pastel tones and knee length breezy cotton jackets that perfectly complimented the summers.
Nikhil Thampi gave us some tips on boardroom fashion with his trend in collaboration with Lakme Salon. While the designer fascinated us with fitted trousers, paneled hems and blazers with a touch of metal here and there, makeup by Lakme experts with shimmery lips, hair braids and the funky nail arts sure kept us eyes hooked on the ramp till the end.
Take a cue from Nishka Lulla on how to transform nerdy fashion to a different level by playing with floral prints on crop tops and the in-style palazzos on pastel shades of blue and peach.
Whether the printed lehengas with front slit kurtas, draped duppattas or the ethnic kurtas and the custom-fit patialas for the menswear, Anita Dongre’s collection was resplendent as usual.
Summer collection takes on with Payal Singhal’s collection which was depicted with plenty of floral motifs on ethnic attires like, saris, lehengas and anarkalis, and also on the indo-western fusion coverings like the skirts with churidars underneath and jumpsuits in metallic silver.
Voluminous silhouettes seeking inspiration from Magma played up with neon, greys and earthy tones with surface and form made for the Amit Aggarwal’s splendid collection.
Graphic block prints make a comeback with Urvashi’s collection that formed the surface for the culottes, jumpsuits and separates. Designs on mulmul with clamp dyeing techniques perfectly balanced her creations with shibori patterns and the linens.
