AIFW A/W’18: Day 3 & 4 brought back the lost glory of fabrics

Shivan & Narresh

After creating a splash on the Instagram last month, finally, Shivan & Narresh displayed it on the ramp with the new series captured in the historic 17th century Edo Art aesthetic and amalgamated with elements from Seychelles. Key ensembles featured signature prints against a colour palette of cherry reds, Seychelles aqua blue, coco brown and powdery blues.

Nida Mahmood

She is known for her quirkiness and this time again she justified it with her collection titled ‘The Chillum Sisters’. The collection revolved around fluid relaxed silhouettes, flowing skirts and anti-fit kurtas and salwars all blended in dreamy blues, dusty peaches and pinks, burnt yellows and dull greens.

Anju Modi

Inspired by the enigma of a forest and the mysteries it beholds, the designer’s collection was an amalgamation of exquisite tropical prints and the traditional art of chintz.

Wendell Rodricks

Painted in all white, Schulen Fernandes for Wendell Rodricks presented a sensual collection that swirled around the form of the models to snugly envelop the body. Fabrics skimmed over curves in layered nuances and were embroidered in a minimal baroque style.

Madhu Jain

Madhu Jain, who made a comeback last season, presented a clothing line in biodegradable Bamboo-Silk Ikat which drew inspiration from traditional Indonesian Ikat. The single colour palette of Indigo came in a burst of light and dark, with occasional lightning streaks.

Namrata Joshipura

The closing show by Namrata Joshipura on the fourth day of fashion week saw comprised silhouettes like gowns, jumpsuits, and skirts in multiple layers of embroidery, all painted in the shades of electric blue, deep magenta, dusty pink, grey and black.


It seems like Aneeth Arora was on a drive to break the monotony of every season, as she explored with a pink and coral runway. What we really loved was her experimentation with checkered wool by superimposing printed florals on the fabric.

Sahil Aneja

From the concept to the core, everything was fresh and quite alluring. Titled ‘Error’, Sahil’s winter collection was actually a break from the routine in every sense. Silhouettes with the 404: Error Not Found logo imprinted on casual t-shirts paired with slouchy jackets, seems to be one of the trends of the upcoming season.

Dhruv Vaish

With a perfect blend of skinny and boxy silhouettes, Dhruv’s collection saw quilted jackets, bombers, long coats, sleek varsity jackets and straight cut pants in the hue of greys and chocolate browns.
