Valliyan by Nitya Arora
Everyone wanted statement jewellery and that’s exactly what they were served at Valliyan’s show. It was loud, head-turning and confident. With tons of experimenting with the nose clips and exaggerated crowns in gold hues, what’s not to like?
If I had to sum up Nikhil Thampi’s show, ‘Bollywood Glam’ would probably be the best way to describe it. As always, he excelled my expectations with the structuring of his designs and versatility of creations showcasing pieces that could be worn to a wedding, a lounge, or a semi-casual outing.
Shift by Nimish Shah
Shift’s collection made me want to pack up my bags and embrace summer somewhere on the Italian coast. Drawstring trousers, summer suits, midi-dresses, column dresses – the creations were easy, relaxed and yet uber chic.
Definitely one of my favourite shows of the day, Jatin Verma’s show was an array of fruity pastels on structured gowns in the fabric of the moment - neoprene. The amalgamation of hues was surprising but pleasant, but personally, I was weak in the knees for the black numbers.
Gauri Khan for Satya Paul
Gauri Khan for Satya Paul showcased sophisticated dollops of print swaying down the ramp. Tropical patterns embodied kaftans, tunics, shift dresses and of course, sarees designed and inspired by Gauri Khan’s personal style for today’s woman of substance. I’d definitely take home one of these!
