The grand finale

The grand finale


 The last day saw some of the best designers come around and showcase their breathtaking collections. True to the event, the creations were grand in their scale and conception and not to say, exclusively for party wear and not for ordinary use. Although the sales were not really much to write home about, the designers were generous enough to overlook the flaw as one of those inevitable first-time hiccups.

The show of Rocky S grabbed the maximum attention. Synonymous with haute fashion and attitude, Rocky hit the ramp to unprecedented cheers and ovation from the crowds.
Hyderabad-based Neeru, who would be starting her boutique in the City, too captured the imagination of many a fashionista of the City. Her bridal collection was choreographed by Achla Sachdev, who incidentally also choreographed and acted in the movie Fashion.

    As the day wore on, Bangalore-based Babita Jaishankar collection titled November Morning was showcased. She had used fall colours — gold, burgundy, yellow and shades of green. The outfits were Indo-Western, made of natural materials such as silk, muslin, wool, and handloom cotton. She had used minimum embellishments with a strong focus on cut and good tailoring. “My designs are very earthy and playful. It’s extremely wearable and I have designed for an international wearer,” said Babita.

    Puja Rajvanshi’s designs emphasised on tunics, evening gowns, corsets, suits and sarees in women’s wear and shirts, trousers, suits, kurtas, and sherwani in men’s wear. She did well in showcasing Kota Khadi and Kota Koria by using their native technique in her modern designs with new look, patterns and different type of fabric embellishment. Sanchita Ajjampur aspired to forge a relationship between fashion and art. She used the two diverse languages to create simple pieces of luxury. 

The most awaited show was that of Rocky S and surely he did close the evening, leaving people yearning for more. His stunning collection comprised gowns, sherwanis, short dresses, suits and western wear. Embellishment and embroidery had been splashed across shades of grey and black, colours which he had used extensively. “These shades make for a perfect anytime, anywhere clothing. It’s rich, elegant and of course makes just about anyone look slim,” Rocky told Metrolife and added, “I keep off heavy work and design solely for comfort.”
