As we all set up for summers after a beautiful spring, we do need to check on the latest trends and update our wardrobe in the most fashionista style that one can possible thing off!
So, where do we get to check on the latest summer collection? Well, I dressed myself in the prettiest outfit and head out to attend the 11th India Runway Week.
For those who are new to fashion and haven’t hear about India Runway Week (IRW), it’s the most celebrated Asia’s youngest fashion trade event. IRW is a platform for young and budding designers to showcase their designs on the global fashion stage. Both India Runway Week and Indian Federation for Fashion Development (IFFD) in partnership facilities and inspire industry growth.
And here I was at the center of hues, textures, fashion, and accessories; the collections lit up the runway, right from the laid-back summer style to some classy luxurious apparels, it had it all.
This three-day extravaganza deemed amazing talent in Indian fashion fraternity. Where day 1 started with all glaze and blaze. Day 2 stood out with extra glam quotient witnessing collections from designers LA- Styliste by Purvi Roy, Prahnaaya, Tvam by Mehak, Varija bajaj, Kaaisha by Shalini and some NexGen designers along with Vidya Institute of Fashion & Technology made their way to the runway.
Second day started with Student show by Vidya Institute of Fashion & Technology, a Meerut based Fashion Institute. A Brooder Runway set by 5 Nextgen designers showcasing their collection namely, Sitannya by Shoumita Ganguly, House of Jas by Jyoti Garg, Sapna Gupta, Vibha Jain and Manua by Mansi.
At the main show area, Varija Bajaj under her label LELA showcased “O2” at India Runway Week, a collection inspired by the environmental hazards and pollution causing everyone to suffocate. LELA calls out for strong action to conserve the environment by creative Boho concept encouraging the use of natural fabric.
Up next was Apoorva Mahajan’s designer collection showcasing everyone who want to display their uniqueness. This Delhi based designer focused on Pastel hues and lighter shades to bring out the best for this summer. Rashmi Desai walked the ramp as a showstopper, looking splendid in redish hue lehenga.
The next showcase was an interesting collection of a new world of clothing. RIG utility clothing, a new fashion brand walked us through the philosophy of traveling to unexplored territories not just in the physical realm but through that an individual’s imagination. It got a raw and sporty feel to the attire.
The evening show by LA Styliste by Purvi Roy was dazzled by Bollywood singer Shibani Kashyap, her stunning black couture dress was embellished with paillettes. This followed by Prahnaaya’s collection which combined traditional drapes with new-age designs and cuts. The third designer Tvam by Mehak showcased Runway bride. Mehak’s inspiration to design this masterpiece was from individual’s like mother, daughter, lover, a wife, a professional, a boss and she has the right to live and live free.
The day finale got overwhelmingly splendid when showstopper Shazahn Padamsee walked the runway for Kaaisha by Shalini. Her collection Elamor was inspired by Seville architecture in Spain which symbolizes a great juxtaposition of old and modern architect.
All this and lot more clicks made the runway truly superhot as we get ready to swipe our cards and stuff our closet with wide new range of summer clothing. So, get going girlies!
