SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi showcased their collection ‘Naseem Bagh’, for which famous magical Chinar leaves was a major inspiration. The collection was painted in autumnal to midnight hues. Finishing touches came in the form of the label’s signature, intricate embroidery and the duo’s festive take on a corset. Vaani Kapoor brought the show to a dramatic close in a fiery crimson lehenga.
For autumn, the International Woolmark Prize finalist presented a unique collection with wearability at its core. Titled disobedience, the line was crafted with architectural yet fuss-free separates played with contrasts (light and heavy, texture and sheen, structure and flow. His signature shades-black and white was again the protagonist of the show.
Drawing from the legends and qualities of Greek goddesses (Aphrodite, Gaia, Artemis, Athena and Hera), Lakmé Salon Showstopping Bride by Nachiket Barve sent out his fierce yet feminine collection, ‘Theia’, which juxtaposed soft detailing with a toughness and sheen reminiscent of warrior armours. The collection included detailing such as capes, panelled skirts and drapes played up the drama on traditional separates in a colour palette of deep blue, ivory and statement red.
It was Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty of Huemn who brought some serious business towards the end of the day as they focused on mindful consumption of fashion. They took waste from seven designers and deftly converted them into deconstructed separates.
It was grand end on day 4 as Manish Arora turned the ground floor of Mumbai’s bustling Palladium Mall into a runway for his collection ‘Cosmic Love’, which celebrated his 10th anniversary on Parisian catwalks and was inspired by the universe. The models walked down through escalators in his signature vibrant separates and tribal patterns.
