WIFW A/W 2011: Interesting looks and outfits from Day 5

April 12, 2011

On the final day of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2011, we spotted a few interesting outfits that made us sit up and take note. Here they are:

Made from safety pins

Nikhita Tandon’s on-ramp rock divas wore dresses that were embellished with safety pins, along with sequins and beads. Edgy? You decide!

Women as pirates

Models in eye patches walked down the ramps at Rahul Reddy (the designer called them “unsung warriors”). Colours were dark, with subtle hints of pink and greys. The appliqués had floral and circular motifs even as accessories like combat boots and umbrellas made an appearance.

Futuristic with elastic

At Ridzyn by Ritesh Kumar, we saw elastic being used to create 3D textures, collars and neckpieces. Combining linear silhouettes with non-traditional add-ons, the designer created a futuristic look that is much more achievable and believable than Priyanka Chopra’s red hair in Love Story 2050.

Let’s go linear

Rahul Mishra’s collection drew inspiration from lines of all kinds. Geometry showed up as diamond motifs and cuts, dots and landscapes. Using mostly black and white along with blush pinks, greys and red accents in silk and khadi, there was symmetry and asymmetry,  but it all balanced out in the final looks.

      @ shooting star– the linear trend is good to “elongate” your body, so maybe you could give it a shot? 🙂

      Thanks for dropping by!
