Fashion Awards

Setting the ramp on fire

It was a show with bold designs, elegance steeped in modern sensibilities. The second day of the BeYu Fashion Awards saw four young designers. It was a much-awaited grand finale. While some sequences wooed the audience, some others didn’t live up to the expectations.

Beginning with the new look for the year ahead, Diego Schober, the make up artist, drew his inspiration from the theme Indian Princess. The look in mainly maroons, reds and pinks emphasised on the eyes and the lips of every model.  The show began with a city-born, Delhi-based designer Zubair Kirmani. His clothes are known to have a, finesse all of its own, was well executed. Beginning with the classy summer outfits in a lovely purple, pinks and beige, Zubair’s collection gradually moved on from  shorts and dresses to the evening wear. Bringing in interesting lines on the men’s wear and the polkas in tasteful colours on the ramp, his clothes set the tone for the evening.

Sanchita Ajjampur’s collection made an instant impression with her Spring-Summer collection. Comprising beach wear in hot pinks and lime greens, was soon followed by the Fall Winter collection which consisted of over sized dresses with Chinese dragon imprints and gold sequenced cocktail dresses. The collection brought out the rock-star chic.

One of the youngest designers of the evening, Tahera, too made her presence felt. With exquisite hand painted fabrics, Tahera uses luxury as a starting point for her extremely young, fun and feminine clothes. This was then followed by Asif Shah, a  designer who raised a lot of expectations among the audience. But his blend of traditional fabrics with hard edged Italian sensibility did not go down well with a lot of people.

Krishna Mehta, who closed the evening with her collection, won the fashion award for her contribution to Indian fashion. Her global appeal with an Indian touch was showcased beautifully. Her trademark of playing with fabrics and colours was well-received by the audience.
