Day 2 of the on-going fashion week was no less of a fashion festival as traditional Indian fabrics were merged with modern silhouettes and designs/ each designer presented their own collections in a rather unique way. From the classic khadi fabric to the art of Dabu printing, the fashion week threw light on the much-forgotten important arts of the traditional Indian fashion scene. 

 

The day kicked off with a pret collection by Eleven Eleven who made their collection with ethical products by using dyes and traditional block prints. Made of organic cotton and khadi, the collection was a breezy one with traditional silhouettes getting a modern twist. The outfits were relaxed and consisted of trench jackets, jogger pants, shirts, hoodies, joggers and a variety of other accesories. What stole the show was the magical runway experience that was created by the brand. Have a look for yourself!

Next up, Anuj Bhutani showcased some traditional styles in khadi. The minimalist traditional designs received a touch of structure and layering. The line comprised of relaxed salwars, kameezes, dupatta, voluminous kurtas, cool dhotis, saris, scarves and turbans. Otherwise, delicate patterns were etched on the garments that played an important part while still living up to the brand's contemporary style.

Khanijo’s take on sustainability was a sight to behold as it was a melange of simple Indian silhouettes with the trends of the future. The label aimed at exploring unisex cuts and transforming traditional wear to high-street apparel. Natural silhouettes still fell trendy because of the impeccable tailoring!

Three by Pallavi Dhyani showed us that even sustainable clothing can be fashionable! It has a minimal touch of trendiness without actually losing its utility. Moving away from the khadi colour story, Pallavi’s collection comprised of subtle tones of grey, mustard, blue and favourites like white, which were livened up with sudden bursts of fuchsia.

Karishma Shahani Khan’s ‘Ka-Sha’ label decided to go on a different route as they presented their collection in the live studio instead of the runway. Oversized silhouettes with exaggerated sleeves, tasselled culottes and sheer scarves were styled together to give a carefree appeal. What stole the show was the colourfully braided hair, chunky jewellery and dark graphic liner that reminded us of traditional tribal ensembles.

Aavran’s collection was ‘An Ode to Dabu’ which is the traditional mud-resist method of printing. The entire collection was a symphony of craft, textiles and heritage. Angarkhas, wide pyjamas, boxy blouses, tunics, kurtas and Pheran style kurtas gave a wide choice to the ethnic dresser. Closing the show was Bollywood star, Mrunal Thakur who glided in wearing a luxurious ivory lehenga with a long-sleeved peplum blouse with gold motifs.

Soham Dave showed us his gorgeous take on the traditional zari work. Indian silhouettes were merged with modern ones for a contemporary palette. The colour story was a solid one with tones of red, blue and black setting the palette right for the zari work to have its moment.

Padmaja’s collection comprised of fabrics printed with natural dyes and flowers. The label worked with natural dyes from recycled flowers and fruits such as coconut, dried rose petals, marigolds and pomegranates. Sarees were predominantly ruled on the runway because of its simplicity and beauty. Every saree was styled with a khadi cropped top instead of the traditional blouse increasing its utility for the modern age. Malvika Mohanan was the perfect show stopper as she graced the runway in a floral saree.

Maku made for a solid show as he showcased what he does the best. Sarees light as air, rich sustainable fabrics and nature-inspired colour palette took our breath away.

Antar-Agni and Urvashi Kaur put together a great show making sustainable clothing fashionable than ever! While Antar-Agni’s collection was a contemporary twist to traditional  Indian silhouettes, Urvashi experimented with modern silhouettes and layering.

Abraham & Thakore closed the day with one of the most audience-engaging shows. Models walked on the ramps as well as around the seating area to give us a close look at the details. Athiya Shetty served as a perfect muse as she took our breath away in a monochrome striped saree with ruffles around its hem.
