Beautiful Fashion Trendy Collection
Known for her swish designs, designer Anamika Khanna showcased her summer line at WIFW on the first day. The brand itself explains explains the story and raise the expectation for a beautiful trendy collection. Carrying forward her intrinsic sensibility of design, she created a set with hanging unlit bulbs in a series, also the heavy chain accessories used as neck pieces was something distinct but nothing bizarre. There were dresses, jackets, long jackets, kaftans and a lot more using various techniques such as cut and mesh work, however the showstopper garment was the same that we witnessed at Couture Week'08, also one of the pieces was a replica of the costume she carried at the IIFA awards 2009.
This was followed by Ashish N Soni. The audience witnessed a come back of little back dress in variations. We could see a little influence of the latest Manish Arora collection with 'circular contours' used as motifs in Ashish's collection. The geeky goggles were witnessed at Nari's show at LFW'AW 09, however, the nerdy look, messy hair and casual attitude of models on the runway gave a different essence to the show. The front row was full of serious buyers including Alka Nishar from AZA, Neha Hirani from Kimaya and a host of international buyers from Japan and France. Sunil Sethi, designers, Narendra Kumar and Nachiket Barve were also spotted there. All in all, a decent show! The Reviews:Alka Nishar (AZA):Anamika was very good as usual, her jackets and dresses were beautiful, and it's good to see some serious fashion happening here. Ashish's collection was reminiscent of little black dresses, actually, dresses are a big trend these days! Nachiket Barve (designer): I think more than one show, it's the atmosphere that I am quite impressed with, I find more seriousness here. Known for is grandeur, ace designer Tarun Tahiliani unveiled his glamorous SS'10 collection at WIFW on 24th of Oct. Not only the sets but the collection was also grand and luxurious. Sticking to his traditional style, the designer showcased his Indian collection comprising of sarees, lehengas dresses and a lot more. Apparently a few pieces amongst the entire assortment were recycled from his previous collections shown at Delhi Fashion Week collection. However, his last sequence had a brand new essence comprising dresses, sarees, anarkalis and long dresses with variations. By the way, no rule book mentions that previous. The first glance of the set was actually a baharon phool barsao moment for the audiences! This hanging garden had a complete essence of floral world of fantasy with birds, peacocks and the waterfalls on the runway but lacked a little professional finish.
Apparently the ramp overshadowed the attire a little, however the name 'TT' is big enough to create a murmuring 'wow' sound echoing in the entire arena which was no surprise element at all. By and large it was a houseful show in comparison to the entire day and the arena overflowed with professionals, buyers, designers like Rohit Bal and people like Meher Rampal and so on. The Reviews: Lauwalah (Buyer from Kuwait):Tarun has become my favorite for last two seasons and the Indian touch in his designs just takes my heart away. The Indian essence has become global now and people actually look forward to that. Meher Rampal (ex model):Tarun stole away my hearts, as always!
