The most awaited fashion event was back with a glamorous bang and just like the last time, I had the opportunity to be a part of the Bangalore Fashion Week. Sit back and relax as I take you, with me, through the glorious collections of the evening that might just take your breath away.
The day2 of DF Silverline Bangalore Fashion Week 13th edition powered by Snapdeal showcased brightest emerging talents and veterans taking the audience on a fashion journey. The day started with DREAM ZONE fashion school collections celebrating the people and places that inspired the budding designers. The designs by students of DREAM ZONE were at par with the professionals and had the onlookers impressed. Here is a glimpse of my favourite outfits from their collection.
Next display was “Chandri Mukherjee” collection inspired from temple walls of Bishnupur. The theme reflects the rich heritage & a unique form of architecture of Bengal Handicraft which is perhaps the most brilliant & detailed terracotta work in Eastern India.
Priyal Kadkade showcased “The Holy House” collection, that is inspired from Bellur temple moves from vintage to historical richness. The fabric used in this collection was predominantly silk. Infusing bold colours for the season and portraying the femininity and elegance through the contemporary cuts and layers, the collection is a beautiful blend of Indian and western silhouettes.
Nidhika Shekhar showcased a collection celebrating beauty, style, femininity, individuality & sensuousness in vivid hues like nude, dusky pink, dusky aqua with shades of black & blue. The collection offers its customers a lifestyle concept for dressing which has everything from must have daywear to glamorous evening wear. The collection is topped with intricate embroidery with zari, nalki, moti & sequence.
I loved Nidhi’s collection as it had easy and flowy garments which can be worn for parties or brunches. The outfits were believable and wearable — exactly what TEC stands by. Here are the best ones from her collection:
Riya Kodali’s collection is particularly inspired by the marine life found in the ocean that covers most of our globe.The designs reflect the Indian ethos with a blend of western influence. The iridescent Lisa Ray, graced the ramp in an exquisite flouncy gown in blue with beautiful fish embroidery hand made with American stones featuring the theme of the show.
Gaurang Shah’s collection presented the modern age bride who is traditional and culturally rooted. The highlights of the collection are the jamdani sarees and ensembles in khadi, uppada, kanjeevaram, paithani, benarasi, patanpatola accentuated with zardozi embroidery, Parsi embroidery, chikan karri embroidery and hand-painted kalamkari. The bridal-festive line with elaborate drapes and silhouettes comprise flowy anarkalis, lehengas, kurtas and a line of sherwanis, kurtas, dhotis for the bridegroom.
Gaurang’s show also had the viewers captured with a Kathak performance that brought a different appeal to the event. Being a dancer myself, I enjoyed this part of the show thouroghly.
This was just the first day and trust me we are far from done. There were two more days filled with Fashion, Style and elegance from the Bangalore Fashion Week and I will be posting their details very soon. Keep watching this space guys!
