Fashion with some drama

Fashion with some drama

The third and fourth day of the ‘Blenders Pride Bangalore Fashion Week’ not only did well to rope in new designers with a fresh perspective on fashion but there was a lot more elements which created rare moments.

Young designer Shloka Sudhakar opened day three with her vibrant line of beautifully constructed saris, anarkalis, lehengas and cocktail dresses. It stood out for the bold use of colours. Another collection worth mentioning is that of Bangalore-based designer Ramesh Dembla, whose work titled ‘Soul Shine’, is aimed at people who are happy.

The drama on stage was further enhanced with a yakshagana performance. “I’ve created chic jackets from a combination of printed wool and velvets. I’ve over used my favourite colours — black and red — in lehengas,” explains Ramesh.    
The final day had some big names. Designer Roohafza hit the ramp with her traditional designs.

   Rwitti Roy played around with bold prints; Aslam Khan had a collection steeped in ornamentation and the evening drew to an end with Bangalore-based designer Manoviraj Khosla treating the audience to a live band to go with a stunning party wear.  
Rwitti Roy’s collection is inspired by Indian folk and pop art the bags, “The collection is meant to be bold, smart and for those who love to experiment. It is for the vibrant, vivacious and spirited,” says Rwitti. Designer Roohafza confesses that designing is more of a passion. “I’ve woven silks, georgettes, chiffons into zardozi and kalamkari print. It was quite a challenge but I managed to transform my imagination into something real,” she explains. Aslam Khan’s lehengas stood out for its elaborate borders. Manoviraj Khosla’s collection was dedicated to party-goers.

   “The collection is supposed to create some fun. My idea to bring in music was to set the right mood for the clothes, music and the audience. It worked like magic and my
collection is dedicated to hardcore party freaks in the City,” says Manoviraj.
