Designer Nachiket Barve’s latest collection ‘Hacienda’ which means ‘Estate’ in Spanish also a kind of luxury meant for few lucky ones……..Nachiket’s designs surely made the meaning clear. The colourful fabric with floral detailing my favourite being the orchid floral designs as well as the South American motifs. the colours reminded my the delicious Mexican & Spanish cuisine with plenty of ‘Avacado’ greens, ‘Lemon’ yellow, ‘Chilly’ Green and hot ‘Paprika’ reds with touches of blue & purple. The collection included one shoulder dresses, cocktail outfits, sarees, pants, bolero jackets and flowy skirts. Overall I liked the works for the colour factor though there were few pieces which required a better fit.
‘Dozakh’ by Karthikeya & Isha
‘Lace’ a fabric used in abundance by designer duo Karthikeya & Isha reminded me of ‘Evita’ somehow. Maybe the elegant silhouettes worn by the women of that era where lace was a favourite. The collection had plenty of dresses, skirts and gown with a regal touch. IFP liked this collection for the mere fact that it had a very ‘Victorian’ feel to it. The creations were straight forward and looked beautiful on the runway.
Alpana & Neeraj
Designer Duo Alpana – Neeraj defined symmetry in a beautiful manner. With the geometric designs taking form of cutwork and three dimensional prints on dresses took a life of their own on the runway. Inspired by the winter season, the collection had all plenty of icy blues, pristine whites, festive reds and cold grey colour. The collection consisted mainly of cocktail dresses and gowns with few pants & tops. IFP likes this collection for the fit and the use of geometric patterns in their designs. A collection which stands out makes IFP’s list……………Alpana – Neeraj did a fine job and hope to see their collection on the red carpet soon.
