A glimpse of the top collections on Day 3 of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012:
The designer used bold kantha stitch with deliberate flaws along with Japanese techniques for a easy-going collection. Divyam used lighter fabrics like linen, mul and silk chiffon to offset the dark-ish colour palette (using lots of indigo).
Hemant & Nandita
Hemant & Nandita’s collection was called “Happily Unmarried” and we know why. Women walked freely wearing body-hugging bodices with gathered skirts. We loved the abstract digital prints inspired from flora. I’d love to wear them!
Ela by Joyjit Talukdar
Playing with “engineered” textures and multi-dimensional silhouettes, Joyjit treated fabrics in various ways to create a variety of textures and accessories. He paid special attention to waistlines and yokes.
A kitsch lover, Nida Mahmood’s show and collection was Bollywood-inspired. This time the designer focussed on the geeky look, and combined bold colours with digital and tie-and-dye prints for the quirky Indian woman.
Off-whites and soft colours, flounces and loose tunics—Nikasha Tawadey’s collection gears you up for a dreamy summer. This summer will be about keeping it simple and sweet.
From regal prints to rich zardozi, Shantanu Goenka’s Marie Antoinette-themed collection had it all. Using vintage silhouettes, the designer mixed colours like pastel colours like pink with beige and gold. The construction techniques used were ruffles, pintucks, life-like embellishments and appliqué. BTW, Kangana Ranaut made a ramp appearance for the designer.
