No weak day this
Contrasting colours, Gypsy and East Asian influences reign supreme. Day Four of the Delhi Fashion Week was the best as a succession of designers showcased impressive collections, writes Kirti Mehta.fashion and trends Updated: Mar 23, 2009 16:38 IST
Day Four of the Delhi Fashion Week was the best as a succession of designers showcased impressive collections. Sandeep and Gaurav opened the day with their collection Equate, which interpreted the co-existence of technology and nature. The collection was low on wearability and even a warm palette of subtle heathers and browns with hues of neon, couldn’t do much to save the collection.
Debutante designer Surbhi Chawla dazzled everyone with her chic collection. Her hand-crafted textured garments were sure eyecatchers. The mix of flowy drapes and fitted dresses in black, white and red, too, were interesting.
Rahul Reddy created magic with his textures, as always. His collection was all about uniforms — school and army — in dual-contrasting colour combinations like blue-ochre, grey-pink and brown-candy blue. Woollen cable knits were juxtaposed with satin and silk.
Atsu Sekhose’s line was inspired from his memories of East Asia. Chinese chrysanthemums were embroidered on
fabrics like satin, cashmere wool and leather. Structured pants and dresses were accessorised with statement pieces by Pieter Louis Erasmus of St. Erasmus London.
The day concluded with Savio Jon’s gypsy-look collection. The outfit with safety pins was interesting. Colours like white and gray were predominant in Western silhouettes like dhoti styled shorts and dresses.
Hits & Misses:
Hits: The day saw some of the best creations making it to the runway. The participating names were at their creative best.
Misses: Sandeep and Gaurav’s show, that opened the day, fell a tad bit short of making headlines. A model on her way back, almost had a wardrobe malfunction. But gladly, she saved it.
Shades of grey will rule in the coming winters.
Sequinned woollen dresses and tunics should fill your closet, along with slouchy shorts and trousers.
