WLIFW: AM:PM for work and play

In a refreshing change from festive wear, Ankur and Priyanka Modi of AM:PM presented a collection of office and easy evening wear at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011.

Office wear included vests with tightly draped skirts. For evening wear, the AM:PM duo used asymmetrical hemlines and wrap dresses in light fabrics like chiffon, with colours like grey and crème. Drapes were also visible in a Grecian dress and a fun jumpsuit.

Being a Spring/Summer collection (called Office Couture), AM:PM gave their collection a summery touch with long sundresses with surface shine and long gowns in empire-line waists.

Speaking Chic says: We didn’t see much experimentation from AM:PM, but most clothes were very wearable.
