As Mickey Contractor gives finishes touches to a model backstage, he remembers the rule he set for himself—-keep it simple. So the eyes, this season, in most WIFW shows were nude, with just a bit of sheen, gloss or eye conditioner is used on bare eyelids. “The mouth has a pop of colour, with a little accent on cheeks to make them shiny and stand out,” he adds.
Georgettes, chiffons and textured fabrics – Pallavi Jaipur plays it colourful this time with ensembles that give Indian craft a new makeover. Modern sensibilities are paired with traditional crafts – an art Pallavi so beautifully showcases this season with shifts, maxi dresses and anarkalis that make every Indian woman’s dream come true.
Winter moods – a palette of bright colours like yellow, red, blue and green went into the colour palette at Nikhita’s show this season. The brightness of the ensembles was meant to oust the winter blues and so the collection showcased easy silhouettes and interesting textures that are meant to flatter every woman’s body.
Nimrita’s collection played with easy flowing silhouettes in satin and georgette in a burst of delicate and feminine colours such as lilac, mint, greys and off whites. Asymmetrical hems, one shoulders styles, palazzo pants and layering of fabrics were key features of the collection. Sequins were blended with satin to create a wearable yet glamorous ensemble and fur gillets added a unique touch to Nimrita’s effeminate collections. Our personal favourite was Nimrita’s take on a flapper dress inspired fringe maxi that came with a modern twist.
