It’s that time of the year again! I have always enjoyed my time on the Bangalore Fashion Week and why not? It is the place where I feel like a child in a fairyland. Every corner is filled with the magical production by talented designers and every show is creatively satisfying in its own way. So much happens at the BFW that I end up writing multiple posts every year and deservedly so. This year is going to be no different. So, my dear readers, I urge you to brace yourselves because you will be treated with some breathtakingly beautiful collection.
The line up on the first day was pretty exciting with few brands like Oxolloxo that TEC has personally worked with. Among the other names were Ramesh Dembla and Michelle Salins. Like every time, the 14th Bangalore Fashion Week is innovative and epitomises the vibrancy of Bangalore. In a four-day event, Bangalore Fashion Week 2016 looks at capturing the creativity of young and upcoming designers. The stage is set — let the show begin!
I also had the opportunity to speak with Michelle. “The first part of the collection was all summer,” Michelle told me when I wanted to know more about her collection. “We put in a lot of Digital prints, Florals, abstracts and solids too. The second part of the collection was also showcased in Rome where we also won an award”. She said with a sparkle in her eye. “I showcased more of a red carpet, award function style of outfits. We have used loud colours like red and subtle pastel shades too.”
The colour of the season is red, obviously, but I wanted to know more. “Of course Red!” She said. “But I never stop using purple. It’s my favourite colour.” And what is that one outfit that will always be present in her wardrobe? “Dresses!” She exclaimed. “I love sheath, fit and flair dresses and laces.” Take a cue ladies!
The collection by Ramesh Dembla titled ‘Ivory Dreams’ gives a contemporary touch to the staple bridal favourite. While many shades of colours adorn the bride, nothing looks as good and pure as white. This collection tries to bring the charm of those fairytale endings with the edgy notes of the high streets. Something vintage yet many things unconventional.
With all honesty, the show was fabulous. There was a myriad of colours, there was the serenity of white, there was beauty, charm and of course, elegance. I am looking forward to the other days and I am hoping they will be much more than I expect. Till then, keep an eye on this page and also TEC’s youtube channel where I am putting up the shows.
