Oversized, relaxed fashion at WIFW

Designers chose to move away from floral prints and summer colours to focus on oversized silhouettes and relaxed designs on the third day of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Spring Summer 2014 edition.

Ruchika Sachdeva, who has a label called Bodice, displayed designs apt for women trying to conceal the non-flattering body parts.

"My collection is lovely for Indian women. It hides whatever you want to," Ruchika told reporters after her show here.

The easy casual wear had block printing. There were geometry and tailoring elements that made the over sized khadi clothes appealing.

Jenjum Gadi moved away from the floral prints in his bid to explore more new themes.
"I've taken inspiration from insects. I believe there is beauty in ugliness too. I found insects interesting," said Jenjum.

He also stayed away from bright colours and made excessive use of black and white.
"Fashion is about change. It was a nice break," he said.

He created saris and dresses in organza and satin. Clutches by Zames Mangte gelled well with his free flowing silhouettes.

Designer Mrinalini's creations too had a lot of fluidity as she wanted relaxed fashion and she achieved that by presenting long maxis, pants with shrugs, jackets gave.

Natural colours inspired by wood and stone were seen. To add depth to garments without prints, she used fabric on fabric.

"I have used fabrics like georgette and cotton and textured them," said Mrinalini.
