Tarun Tahiliani’s banging opening show of the A/W’14 collection at Wills India Lifestyle Fashion Week, New Delhi. For the indo western lovers, darlings we have news for you, Indian is the way to go. Seems like the fiery red and the classy black are back in fashion. While the first show shouted royalty and elegance the second one was all about bright colors. I personally loved the combination in the first show and the outfit styles in the second ones. The madly successful show had the super hot Shilpa Shetty as their showstopper wearing a stunning red and orange Lehenga.
Anupama Dayal started with the most subtle yet bright opening. The audience seemed to be going gaga from the very first Lehenga and vibrant outfits that lit up the whole place.
And then Vineet Bahl toned down the whole place with his off white collection. You could see the colors escalating slowly and peaking in the terms of brightness and then there were the final pieces that blew us all away and kept us wanting more by the end of it.
Raakesh Agarwal, oh my god what a show it was! Truly something worth writing about. His show showcased all the studs, fur and leather in all the right ways possible and the dreamy presentation with all the smoke just added a lot to his collection. A lot of black and gold was also seen in his collection (seems like the combination is actually back with a bang). He played his leather very well with the blue smoky effect. His collection also saw a variety of a lot of unisons and dresses in different styles. He basically played all his elements really well and personally I think it was one of the best shows of the night all thanks to the way he crazily brought all the fashionable trends in one.
On the other hand Kiran Uttam Ghosh’s collection saw a lot of black. It was either black net or black felt! She also played her elements well the threadwork, the felt and velvet altogether in one piece. Bronze and a lot of aquamarine blue were seen too on her collection. Saw maximum of different types of dresses in her show. The colors orange, violet and brown were seen too in her collection. But then, it felt that the ‘bang’ factor was missing in her collection. So between Raakesh Agarwal and Kiran Uttam Ghosh, I would say Raakesh stole the show!
Rina Dhaka. Well, the last show always holds high expectations, because you always end with a bang. For me the show’s theme was “Faux Pas”. Every dress had amazing potential but expected more.
Stay tuned for highlights from day two!
