The 30th season of India Fashion week co-ordinated by Fashion design council of India powered by Amazon.in was the most spectacular fashion event of Indian Fashion in 2018.
DAY 1 Highlights : Celebrating 25 years within the business, JJ Valaya displayed a varied mix of event wear and dressmaking awakened by his very old art goddesses. impressed by the quiet and (typical and expected) excellence of the Sundarbans, Anupama Dayal reminded people of ‘Jalpari’, the imaginary being of its waters along with her mixed group of resort wear.
DAY 2 Highlights : Ashish N Soni’s extended easy-to-use shading approach was used on about thirty different textures. All textures were in shades or worked on a 3D look. Inspired by love and the regal essence of the Edwardian Era, Rhina Dhaka’s collection comprised of solid-coloured bulky dresses and broderie anglaise in a variety of fabrics. Florals proved to be a powerful representation while sheers made a clear impression.
DAY 3 Highlights : Pinnacle Shruti Sancheti’s initial showcase of all-white which included knee-length tunics with capes and bell-sleeved shirts with culottes (and a fanny pack!) was the definition of comfort wear.
DAY 4 Highlights : Anju Modi’s unceasing store kit had traditional ensembles like kurtas and asymmetric jackets layered with saris in washed-out tones of ivory, mustard yellow and indigo. Inspired by Nobuyoshi Araki’s affinity for lush flower arrangements, the duo presented a sexy resort-wear line consisting of lazed comfort wear like capes and robes, coupled with shorts, Palazzos, classic gowns and flare skirts.
DAY 5 Highlights : The first half of the multi-designer finale included five prêt lines by renowned names of the industry. Pankaj & Nidhi showcased crisp evening-wear silhouettes while Ashish N Soni waved the runway with smart formals in textured jacquards and knit fabrics. Pleasant carnival styles using block prints, tie and dye and embroidered fabrics were created by Krishna Mehta. Couturier Suneet Varma concluded the finale showcase with 35 limited edition ensembles. The designer celebrated his 30th year with his ‘Garden Of Eden collection’.
