The final day at Wills India Fashion Week showcased some very promising new talent and some older favourites.
The Hi 5 show at WIFW is always highly anticipated and we are always on the lookout for that young designer who will make us sit up and take notice. This season it was Josh Goraya and Shweta Kapoor who had us on the edge of our seats. We fell in love with Josh Goraya’s exceptional tailoring, all over prints and uber cool backpacks.
A clean, minimal take on sport luxe, Shweta Kapur’s collection was filled with a wide range of separates that were chic and very wearable. Bermuda shorts, crop tops, sheath dresses with cutouts and baseball caps were prevalent in the collection in a bright colour palette of tangerine, coral, fuchsia and deep blue.
In a classic monochrome palette with shades of steel grey and blue, Vaishali Shandangule’s collection stood testament to her remarkable gift for layering. Beautiful textures on elegant silhouettes made for chic maxi dress and gowns. We especially loved the steel grey sleeveless maxi (above right)!
A ‘Grand Finale’ in the true sense of the word, Ashish N Soni gave us a show that we are going to be talking about for a very long time! We took a trip to the 50s with his immaculate cuts, sophisticated silhouettes and classic monochrome palette. Channeling Italian Riviera chic, his ‘La Dolce Vita’ collection saw flared skirts, sharp tuxedos suits for both the girls and the boys styled with a deep red pout and cat- eye sunglasses.
