Straight off the ramp

Straight off the ramp

Day Two and Three of the ongoing fashion week saw an array of designs 

Anupamaa Dayal

Designer Anupama Dayal promoted forests of Mangar village in tropical hues using fabrics like Chanderi silk at Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2017. The ramp might be simple but Dayal’s colourful and eye pleasing collection brought life to the stage.

Accessories made out of gota made a statement of their own in silver, golden and bronze. The palate ranged from parakeet green, poison ivy, daffodil yellow to shades of indigo , burgundy and raisin. Ranging from over coats to simple dresses, the designers churned out a very wearable collection.

“We have romanced intense florals. We have also tried to incorporate learning from the life of a forest dweller often the wandering nomad. Light, wearable in multiple ways, several uses, easy to travel with, feminine enough to win hearts...strong enough to pass on to the next generation,” she said.

Rina Dhaka

Rina’s collection  consisted off-shoulder sheath, crochet mesh, sequins, velvet lapels, layered dresses, plaid jackets, chiffon plisse dress, knitted jackets, long gowns and tartan frill dress.

Vaani Kapoor walked the ramp for designer Rina Dhaka and the newly launched mobile brand. Clad in a jet black faux fur, body-hugging, floor-touching dress, Vaani walked the ramp in smokey eyed makeup.

Siddartha Tytler

With the colour palette predominately in the hues of black with few shades of grey, the collection had a dark mood set in and has been inspired by the after-life, the departure of one’s soul from the existing body. The garments were very structured with severe silhouettes and sharp cuts all weaved together beautifully. Its an effortless fusion of the classic with quirky. On-ramp collection offered insights into these creative ideas of juxtaposing the use of crystal application along with the use of surface embellishments, metal hardware with contrasting patchwork and applique work.

Ashima Leena

Delicately sculptured skirts, quaint pashmina blouses, tribal gilets, asymmetric kurtas and deftly composed saris were juxtaposed with scaled metal details, luxe stone embellishments and appliqués to give a dimension of modernism in ‘Charukesha’. An opulent twist is conjured by interweaving motifs that adorn the architectural realms of Khiva in the collection. The palette descends rapidly through the iridescence of indigo and into an impermanence of blue, as pansy purples and turquoise are greeted by a contradiction of anthracite and eggshell
