The fashion week in the Capital took a bow at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, on Saturday evening. The four-day event had a bit of everything — from ample inspiration for your autumn/winter wardrobe to Bollywood celebs sprinkling a bit of star dust to the bi-annual affair. And, the final day had a lot of trends that’ll help add to your autumn mood. Here are a few of them.
THE NEW-AGE BOLD:
For the Grand Finale, designer Tarun Tahiliani, the ‘Guru’, presented a collaborative collection with ‘Shishya’, Amit Aggarwal. The collections looked to the future for inspiration. From Tahiliani’s creations, one could choose from elaborate yet understated embroidery or go for cocktail-perfect graphic-printed separates. On the other hand, Amit Aggarwal’s structured mastery gave a vote to sustainable fashion as he restored Patola saris, lush brocades and played with three-dimensional details. Dedicated to a bride or to an ethnicwear aficionado — it’s clear the future of fall is made of metallics, bold prints and handcrafted weaves.
At Rohit Kamra, the collection was mostly made of black and white for fall with a touch of metallic. If you are not afraid of ushering in leather weather, invest in a pair of leather leggings to add mettle. Actor Richa Chadda turned showstopper for the Jaipur-based designer. .
Designer Dhruv Vaish showed a collection with statement formalwear. While layering was on-point for autumn, the checkered suit made an appearance often in the showcase. For the coming season, give gingham a chance, guys.Wrestler Sangram Singh walked for Vaish.
While eco-conscious fashion has been a buzzword for long, you don’t have to compromise on style to cash in on the trend. At H&M, actor Dia Mirza wore a romantic tulle dress made with re-cycled polyester. So for fall, experiment with consciously created or restored fabrics.
CAMO CO-ORDS :
To revamp your autumn layering, go the co-ords way. At Nought One by Abhishek Paatni, singer Anushka Manchanda walked out in a re-imagined camouflage print jacket and matching athleisure pants. So, go for co-ordinated separates for winter for a uni-toned stylish look.
