If you are following my blog, you should know that Bangalore Fashion Week isn’t new here. From past three editions I have covered multiple posts as it happens in my city which I love! I attended Bangalore Fashion Week 2016 15th Edition and putting forth the highlights from the same. I managed to attend few shows even with very busy schedule and the fashion week was held at Sheraton Grand. The fashion week witnessed the Winter Festive theme of the edition.The designers launched their ensemble for the upcoming festive season.
Even though the excitement was on bit lower side this year amongst the crowd, there were few designers who Managed to add on the wow factor to the fashion week. On day 1, Ramesh Dembla showcased his “silver fox” themed collection as a finale and gave an amazing start to the fashion week. Acclaimed actor Elli Avram walked the ramp for designer Ramesh Dembla show which is called as Krishna Dembla. I feel like snow white who is very strong in this outfit, says the showstopper Elli. I wanted to add some wildness to the collection so I added on the silver color to my usual black collection said the Designer himself.
Amongst great designers line up on the Day 2, I witnessed collection from Michelle Salins. Actor Ragini Dviwedi who has given multiple hit movies in Kannada industry walked for her. The theme was inspired from the ‘Retro’ era which has silhouettes in trapeze style, fit and flair dresses in the shades of pastel colours like red, blue and green. The gowns in the collection were embellished with Swarovski crystal and glass.
On Day 3, Among other designers were Ashok Maanay and Abhishek Datta. I find Ashok as a kind and sweet person along with the great designer he is. He dedicated his collection to his Mother who has recently passed away and hence had simple and elegant sarees in his collection. He showcased the royality in the Men’s collection which were all white and off whites.
A raw and rustic setup was waiting with tyres and tools on the ramp for the models to walk. The Fall/Winter collection of Abhishek Datta symbolized the chaos in terms of prints, textures and surfaces, stain and collection. Cotton twills, linens, jacquards and leather form the key fabrics. Fragmented heart, tessellated skulls are the key motifs which enhance and implement the thing. The collection epitomizes modernity with quintessential of grunge and rustic fused in tinges to accentuate its aestheticism.
On day 4, Archana Kochhar presented her new digital collection as finale, ‘Garden of Eve’ is inspired by the beautiful imagery of the glorious gardens. It mesmerized the audience through a visual spectacle propelled by luscious flora and dream like vision. The prints have highlights of angelic portraits and floral motifs offset with black and white stripes that brings out the modern zest in the collection. Intricately digitally printed garments with silhouettes ranging from Indian fusion to contemporary bridal included lehengas with crop tops, keyhole anarkalis, structured saris, pencil skirts with flared tops and floor length anarkalis. Tones of mint green, rusty pink, red, black and white were seen accentuating the floral persona of the collection. The designer also promotes ‘Global disability inclusion’, where Esther, the model opened the show for the designer on a wheel chair.
As always, Don’t forget to Keep it Stylish and Stay Beautiful!
