What I saw: Studs, spikes, neon, men with purses and women in bowties.
bang on time and very punctual. Surprise pleasant surprise!!
Runway Trends: Sheer here, sheer there, sheer sheer everywhere..the trend made its presence
felt in every collection. A restrained but noticeable presence of neon. Texture.
Structure. Maxi lengths. Jackets Jackets Jackets.
Sheer/ Low backs.
The Designers: Most of them are just as pretty as the models, just a loooot shorter. Sneha
Arora is as immaculately turned out as her models and shows as much
character as her clothes do. Shikha and Vinita (Ilk) danced on stage and Javed
Khan seems as shy as his clothes are bold.
The Clothes: Breathtakingly stunning!! I felt like I could just die looking at them and the
LFW sourcing area could be my heaven. Masaba’s clothes spell “personality”.
Nikhil Thampi had me at that lemon yellow and the cute fish print. Pia Pauro’s
collection is fun fun fun. I loved Sneha Arora’s attention to detail, the bird and
hot air balloon print, stuffed birds on jackets bird cages as bags and 3D origami
details on shirts
whats not to love..
What I learnt: A new found respect for the designers. They don’t just design clothes, they
design works of art around genius concepts. They design the shoes, the bags, the
tags, the invites, the media kits even the hangers and the stall. They don’t just
conceptualise they also get them materialised!! Phew!! that is a lot of work.
so much more hard work and happiness. Thank you Pallavi.
