Designer Anand Kabra presented his Spring/Summer 2013 collection which had muted colours unlike his earlier works. The collection was a mix of western & Indian wear………though not very fond of the few pieces from his western wear outfits, but love the flowing lehenga skirts paired with cutwork detailing cholis. The light fabrics are perfect for the summer season but what I really liked was it was effortlessly stylish. If you plan to go on a resort wedding, then do take a sneak peek at Anand’s latest offering.
North-East show by Atsu Sekhose
As time passes by I have realised that designer Atsu Sekhose is a talent powerhouse and this collection confirmed my thoughts yet again. The Ministry of Textile along with designer Atsu presented this colourful soiree titled ‘The North-East Show’. Atsu who himself belongs to the ‘North-Eastern’ part of India, had created beautiful pieces from Assamese silk & cotton to form jackets, tops, pants, skirts and dresses. Why we liked the collection?………….such a work to be created out of hand-woven fabrics is amazing. I have seen Indian-wear created out of handloom fabrics……but this collection defied all odds.
Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna
Glitter here and there did catch my eye in Rohit Gandhi-Rahul Khanna’s latest collection. The flowy fabrics had loads of detailing on the bodice & shoulder part. The collection had evening wear outfits like cocktail dresses, skirts, trousers and jackets. The styling of the models was 1950′s, colours in pastels & sherbet orange with black, grey & golden sequin details. IFP is sure that these outfits will surely make their way in the wardrobes of celebrities and on the red carpet. This was ‘Art’ combined with the element of ‘Glamour’.
