The duo’s store was opened in the City a few years ago. “Bangalore is a fantastic place when it comes to fashion. I have a steady clientele here,” said David. Speaking of his latest collection, which was showcased at many popular ramp shows, he said, “It mainly consists of contemporary Indian clothes — traditional wear in modern style. There are tunics, salwars, saris — we have deconstructed them and showcased them in a modern way. There are winter coats as well.”

The prints on the garments are quite unusual as well, like motifs of cycle rickshaws and autos. The duo’s target is mainly working professionals so the two have strived to design something classy yet not too heavy to be worn on a daily basis. The models donned all the collections amongst which, Abraham & Thakore’s creations consisted of black and white colours.

Neeru Kumar’s collection mainly comprised ethnic wear made from wool and wool silk. The collection was also created using techniques like tie-and-dye and Japanese shibori to lend colour in an interesting way. Shawls and scarves made from silk and wool, linen and silk, cotton and silk are also a part of the collection.  

Experimenting with basic geometrical shapes, triangles and rectangles, was Rajesh Pratap Singh in his collection. The designer had twisted classic men’s dinner jackets into women’s clothing. His collection also consisted of mix and match checks and stripes, and colours like red, ecru, navy, charcoal and black. All these collections are available at the Atmosphere Building, Vittal Mallya Road.
