- Not so serious by Pallavi Mohan
The designer–a Vogue India Fashion Fund finalist this year–played with the shifting shapes, colours and shadows that live within that seemingly simple cylinder.The designer’s choice ranged from stars and squares to triangles and circles, hand-appliquéd on to organza and chambray. Where she made her point strongest was with the pieces on which these motifs were placed in a seemingly haphazard manner, the the burst of shapes echoing the ever-shifting nature of the kaleidoscope.
- Shantanu and Nikhil
Their latest collection titled – “The Last Walk” , models walked gracefully in voluminous Shantanu & Nikhil signature gowns that spelled grandeur and elegance. Like always, the duo experimented with drapes and silhouettes. A lot of net in whites, greys and reds dominated the runway. They paid attention to fine detailing over the garments but kept it simple and minimalistic.
The Last Walk is based on the emotions of a strong woman who creates an existence of her own and is ready to embrace any turmoil that confronts her. She takes every bit of her journey as her last and is re-born each day—so in this collection, her transience is represented through calm hues like beige and grey, and fiery colours like red.”

The collection is called Silver , and it appears through the collection in different avatars—from silver filigree work to pieces of silver mirror to opulently rustic, junk-y pieces inspired by Tibetan and central Asian jewelry. So silver appears all through the collection as a versatile metal. And the tone is sometimes white and shiny or high glossy and sleek, even tarnished and rustic silver, where it almost looks like bronze , they have also used ombre yellows along with the teals, blue greens, indigo blues, deep reds, oxblood, and deep charcoal.
