The fashion week commenced in Delhi yesterday however, I only attended the opening by Masaba for Satya Paul on Day 1 as I conveniently had a psychology final today morning. I attended only the major shows today evening which were Tarun Tahiliani, Alpana and Neeraj, Rishta by Arjun Saluja , Shantanu and Nikhil and Anju Modi. The whole day has been rater hectic with my exam in the morning followed by me strutting madly in heeled-leather boots around the venue in-between shows (I make some amazing life choices you guys). Anyhow, I decided to share some shots from different shows. Since I will be attending the whole event I will put up more interesting and exciting things on the blog for my lovely readers about the shows as well as do some fun posts! Stay updated!

This was the first time I attended the Will’s Lifestyle Fashion Week which happened in Delhi. I attended only three shows (I intend to attend the whole thing next time) but they all were unique and were quite parallel. Due to some confusion, I couldn’t get photos (ok no confusion, my camera died) but I got the runway photos from Y Magazine (for which I was covering the show) and did the outfit post after I came back.
Rehane introduced fruity summer look in her collection with western silhouette and lace embellishments. Her collection had of color and was collection with a lot of incitement. Her collection had a European Couture touch, for which this Chennai- based designer, is known for. The dresses incorporated of this season’s tunic and tube dresses along with A- line skirts and floral prints.
Accessories were a vital part in her collection. She incorporated multi-stripped belts with bags and 3D accessories (thinking Banana Republic, I suppose). But the hairdo was the major part of her collection. There were headbands along with life-size flowers screamed American fifties hairdo in a modern way. She did not use a lot of make-up and kept it light, simple and exciting.
The major problem for me in the show was that her collection did not symbolize autumn or winter of any sort. I felt that the look was rather unfinished or more modifications could have happened. The bags were a major problem (ahem Jessica Szohr in Gossip Girl ahem) they did not coordinate and nor did they look ramp-like. But the show was fun and enthralling so I guess that is it.
Urvashi Kaur’s Show
A ballet dancer started the show while dancing on a sufi tone. The collection incorporated of colorful Angarkha tops where neck-accessory was a major part. The model carried some impeccable scarves which had a mix of both Indian and western touch. The show for me was rather unique.
Kallol Dutta 1955 Show
This was probably the best one I attended. I loved how Kallol Dutta mixed neutral colors and I loved his freshness and how he incorporated geometrical and abstract designs in his collections.
