Day3 has been my favorite so far.It is always a pleasure to see what the debutante designers have to offer challenging the status quo and the energy at the show- palpable! The Hi-5 show, featured five new designers Shalini James, Chhaya Mehrotra, Poonam Dubey, Aditya Dugar and Abhi Singh
Shalini James signature line “Indian by choice” offered ethnic contemporary collection in a riot of Indian hues like Rani, Gulabi, Gajari, Kesari, Jamun,Neel, Firozi, Ambar, Rama, Bajra,
Badami, Mehendi, Haldi, Kumkum, Krishna and Kohl, to name just a few. Highlight of the show was the showstopper who was none other than Ambika Pillai herself!
Chhaya Mehrotra’s Bubby in Paris was a skillfully crafted handloom collection from Banaras that had subtle French influences in its designs.Pastel hues of crème peach, pink, blue and green defined the colour pallete alongside a very Banarsi Blue Denim. French roses to floral scallops motifs combined with brocade gave the collection a fresh look. Shreen Bhan was the show stopper for the show ,who looked pretty elegant in a white pastel saree deigned by Chhaya
My pick from Poonam Dubey, Abhi Singh and Aditya Dugar’s collection
