Day 3 at WIFW saw a motley crew of designers, both young and established.
Ruchika Sachdeva’s eponymous label Bodice was made of easy separates in her signature colours of mustard and slate with the inclusions of lighter blues and starch whites. Her jackets for SS’14 were more relaxed, the shoulders on the dresses slouchier, and the collection had a resort, anti fit feel to it.
Jenjum Gadi’s SS’14 line with the scarab beetle motifs in bright blues and reds and the gorgeous digital dragonfly prints strewn across was fun and vibrant. The trend of layering of sheer organzas with prints was seen across this collection too.
Payal pratap was all about earthy colours and a rustic, homegrown charm. With a colour palette ranging from deep auburn to shades of burnt sepia, we saw many a lovely maxi dress that would be perfect for a sea side holiday. The chintz dresses and cotton jackets were on our wishlist too.
We loved Sanchita’s collection which was young, structured and urban. In pale pinks, patent blacks and high shine nude, this line was inspired by sporty elements with a global traveller appeal. Bejewelled caps and leather oversized clutches added edge to this show. we’re especially coveting the shirtdresses with embroidered accents on the shoulders, and the oh-so-cool caps.
Rohit Gandhi+Rahul Khanna exhibited sheeted sequins and sheer panels in luscious peach, flattering ecru and shimmering greys. Asymmetric curvilinear shapes and thigh high slits ran through this evening wear collection. The gowns were glamorous, the make up was barely there on sexy bronzed skin. We loved that this show was all about high wattage red carpet glam.
