As the week came to close, we saw some show-stopping looks and some beautifully inspired interpretations by the designers. Read on to know who won us over.
Oriental Garden: Kunal Anil Tanna took us to the Japanese plum blossoming festival with his collection titled ‘Ume Matsuri’ – warm hues of the colour du jour ‘Marsala’, some interesting layering with men having their waists cinched with Kunal’s version of the obi belt – what’s not to love?!
We ‘heart’ this: Twitterpated, adj [twit-er-pey-tid], excited or overcome by romantic feelings – the inspiration for Shubhika’s collection for Papa Don’t Preach. A lovestruck Shubhika showed us an array of pastel pops and heart motifs embellished to glory along with her innovative accessories. We feel a mini Manish Arora in-the-making when we see her collections.
Artsy affair: Always one to draw inspiration from art, Shivan & Narresh took a leaf out of French painter Henri Rousseau’s book for their resortwear collection – cut-outs, colour-blocking, and all the glamorous-kini’s that S & N’s swimwear stands for, was refreshed for our eyes this season again, with an addition of a show-stopping black neoprene lehenga to close the show.
Tarun Tahiliani was the second designer who took to the ramp with an art-inpsired collection. It was famous art mavens ‘The Singh Twins’ (Amrita and Rabindra) paintings that proved to be the inspiration. We saw colours in full swing with a bohemian touch of drapes and easy silhouettes.
A royal finale: The Queen of couture, Anamika Khanna took to the stage with her splendid collection for the finale – we saw a slew of tassles, capes, and gorgeous head accessories that redefine the modern-bride.
Tell us, who’s collection are you crushing on?
