Fashion week

It was a starry affair

The fifth and final day of ‘India Luxury Style Week’ (ILSW), organised at Moevenpick Hotel & Spa, commenced with Sumit Dasgupta, the connoisseur of ethnic fashion. Known for the use of Indian craft and textile in his work, each garment of his was a piece of art with utmost precision. The ILSW collection consisted of fabrics like silk, chiffon, georgette, and brocade with techniques like zari,  tie-and-dye, gota and zardozi, infusing this collection with traditionalism and an underlying layer of modernity.

The second show of the day was by Aasif Merchant, a well-known name in the field of design. Merchant, who has been in the industry for 22 years, has supplied to leading fashion houses in Italy. His collection was all about sharp cuts and the minimalistic approach to his garments was evident. Crisp suits, bold prints, blues and whites in this collection made it ideal for the discerning man who likes to stand out with subtlety. The showstopper for Aasif was popular TV actor Vijay Singh.

   Varoin Marwah from Dubai was the third designer to showcase his collection. Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao looked dapper on the ramp as he walked for the collection named ‘Amala’. Since it was a winter festive line, fabrics like textured jacquards and suitings were incorporated. His collection epitomised simplicity yet revealed his attention to detail. Ken Ferns took beachwear to another level with his collection. The models sashayed on the ramp with printed backpacks, shorts in bright hues and luxurious beachwear.

The show came to an end in a grand way with Ramesh Dembla, the brains behind ILSW, showcasing his collection ‘Krishna Dembla’, named after his son. He had the suave Akshay Kumar as his special surprise act that left the audience very excited. The collection consisted of classic ‘kurtas’, jackets and suits in soothing blues, greys, whites and striking blacks. This was followed by a mesmerising laser dance performance by ‘Illuminati’ from Mumbai. The act then continued with Akshay singing his famous song ‘Mujh Me Tu’. The Bollywood star then walked the ramp with Ramesh and even did a running sequence with all the models.
