How are you all doing? I’m back after a long week of attending the fashion week 🙂 If you remember, last time I did some highlights from Bangalore Fashion Week 13th Edition. This time around, we actually went to witness the fashion week 😀 I felt like Alice in Wonderland with people around who understand and talk fashion. 😀 Glamour and panache took center-stage at Bangalore as Blender’s Pride Bangalore Fashion Week 14th edition – Summer Online.
The 14th edition, powered by Snapdeal had acclaimed actress Parvathy Nair who walked the ramp for designer Mable Thomas and Mandana Karimi walked for designer Ramesh Dembla.
HemanthSiree.Maarg by Hemanthsiree – The designer presented Indian Ethnic collection featuring traditional looms like Ikkat, Jute Silk and Cool Cottons fused with traditional Embroidery and Arts. There were Indo Western Ikkat Blouses with traditional Organza sarees, Jute Silk floor length frocks with contemporary art and Indo Western salwars using “Damask” effect.
Suvagata Design Studio by Suvagata Das – Inspired from ‘Bagru’, known for natural dyes and hand block printing, Designer Suvagata presented her latest collection titled ‘The Blue Tale’. Through this collection, the designer aims to revive and restore this art form from Rajasthan. The collection revolves around a very simple silhouette with base colour of indigo and white with highlights of red. The collection had flared trousers, skirts, shirts and shrugs combined with interesting accessories to dramatize the look.
Styylefairy Couture by Mable Thomas – This collection titled Taj – The Epitome of Love, is a modern take on traditional bridal wear and wedding trousseaus. The collection features bridal apparel from across different states of India, alongside western bridal gowns, evening gowns and reception wear. The colors used in the collection were primarily whites, beige, dusty pinks, mauves, blush pink, maroon and gold, royal blues, purple, peach, shades of coral and lavender.
Koens Couture by Nupur Sahoo – The collection was a rich mix of traditional with modern touch. Nupur showcased sarees with handwoven embroidery by fusing different kind of silk like Banarasi, Mangalgiri, Baswara, Chanderi and Sambalpuri Ikkat encrypted with Zardosi, Sabba Kasidakari, Minakari, Aree and Silver filigree.
Oxolloxo.com – Spring Summer ’16 Oxolloxo collection is inspired by floral prints. The idea behind the collection revolves around the independence of a girl, her outgoing and liberal outlook in life. It’s about how quickly women can shuffle from casual clothing to party wear with extreme ease and confidence.
Michelle Salins – Michelle presents an amalgamation of fun, fabulous and sophisticated ensembles with a full collection of crisp linens for summer which recently hit the high fashion ramps of Rome’s ALTA MODA ALTA ROMA. Scorching the ramp with a playful mix of floral prints, checks, digital abstracts and solid colours in exotic European linen, the Michelle Salins Man is ready for his Jour Ferie’ while the woman struts her stunning femminity in their trademark fit and flare silhouettes, gowns and summer dresses bringing an edge to pretty.
Ramesh Dembla – The collection by Ramesh Dembla titled ‘Ivory Dreams’ gives a contemporary touch to the staple bridal favourite. This collection tries to bring the charm of those fairytale endings with the edgy notes of the high streets. Something vintage yet many things unconventional.
I absolutely loved Ramesh Dembla’s take on bridal wear. Keeping alive the basics of bridal wear and at the same time, experimenting with textures and designs.
