With more than 140 designers showcasing at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, not all designers make the cut. Some collections have been lack lustre and some plain uninspiring. Amidst the resounding success of some collections, we take a look at some collections that had the potential but couldn’t live up to it.
Fashion designer Ankita Chaudhary whose collection was inspired by the barren beauty of Ladakh failed to create an impact with her uninspired designs. Even though the colour palette, which comprised of coral, indigo, ice green and brown, was ideal and did manage to create a flutter of hope, her designs were a let down. Nothing about the short voluminous asymmetrical designs said 'Ladakh'.
Another designer who disappointed with her unfinished, ill-fitted garmenst was Komal Sood. While some evening gowns looked absolutely gorgeous in satin and silk, others looked unfinished. The use of sheer, taffeta and trails had nothing new to offer. All in all, it was an ordinary display of what could’ve been sensational evening wear.
Designer Jaya Rathore played it a little too safe and boring. Her usage of Spanish embroidery was beautifully used but could’ve been a lot more creative.
The shocker of Day 2 came with designer Payal Jain’s collection. It had almost nothing new to offer. Even though some of the dresses looked absolutely stunning on the ramp and the garment construction was perfect, the collection on the whole failed to leave a lasting impact.
