The last day at FDCI’s Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week was a starry affair, with designers putting their fashion best forward. Many stalwarts presented their collection and wowed one and all.
Woven from pure cashmere, each creation from the designer brings to life a celebration of what human hands can achieve. The designer thinks in technicolour and enjoys living life boldly. Her aesthetic signature combines just the right touch of forward-thinking vivacity with strokes of old world, elegant whimsy, inspired by her gracious Himalayan hometown, Kashmir. Her collecrion, Talisman presented a distinct style statement for the bold. Every cloud needs a silver lining – a talisman, a personal totem, to give us comfort. Juxtapositions of unique embroideries upon intricate lacing offer unending versatility to dress up or dress down a look.
The designer specializes in strong cuts and design sensibilities. With a high workmanship and a strong team everything that’s taken up is done in the timelines. The designer’s love for the patterns, motifs, techniques was visible in his collection in the fashion week. This year’s collection BLITZEN had a very futuristic approach designed for the trend hunger urbanities. In a palette of Inky Blues and Blacks, technical tints of grey and shiny metallics, fabrics were inventive and modern. Reflective tapes and PU fabrics were the eye catching elements of the collection. The collection was inspired by the contemporary industrial design and tech revolution.
Vikram Bajaj, through his brainchild ‘Sport-Couture’ strives to deliver the best of both worlds. His collection had avant-garde silhouettes and ultra-modern graphics. The line emphasises to lay equal weightage on design and utilitarian value of each piece. The colour palette ranges from shades of kapok green and soft khaki to illusion blue with hints of lemon drop, fuchsia and urban orange. With keen attention to detail, the label is engineered towards a perfectly flattering appearance with handsomely tailored cuts. The entire range showcases a remarkably unique ensemble of chic occasion/street wear in immaculate designs including unisex choices.
Her India Fashion Week collection paid homage to grit. It reflected on the fortitude, looking at adversity in the eye and yet marching on to a place which is home. A metaphor for security, warmth and comfort. A nest, allegorical of how we all have done the same. Her collection titled Book of Courage mirrors the austerity and simplicity with which those, who are living on the fringes of society faced the worst crisis of the decade.
