Hope you all had a great Monday. I am just back in action after a hectic week and my birthday celebrations (which was yesterday) and have lined up many posts that will catch you fancy.
Starting the week and the month, the first post is actually also another First as its the coverage of the 1st Edition of Asian Designer Week powered by FTV - Fashion Crosses Borders. Being the Official Blogger for the event, we covered it Live through all our social media channels and Snapchat.
And here we are with the Day 1 Highlights of ADW 2015 :
The first edition of Asian Designer Week saw a Grand Opening with the show by leading designer Abhi Singh, renowned for his design sensibility with refined textures and innovative crafts.
Abhi Singh presented his collection titled Melancholy featuring designs rich in intricate embroidery and interesting use of threads.
Melancholy is all about a go-getter attitude and Abhi Singh reflected this attitude with use of dark and dusty colors in his designs. His collection featured interesting silhouettes, bodycon dresses, cape styles and more.
Asian Designer Week is committed towards promoting new talent, and therefore, the first day of the fashion week saw NewGen designers Hina Madhumal & Sonia Shre showcasing their latest collections.
Hina Madhumal is the face behind popular Spanish fashion label - Hina’s Atelier which was launched in Shanghai in 2013.
She showcased an edgy and powerful collection called "Urban Warriors Modern Armour". Her collection was inspired by the struggle of today's women who are like warriors, one who are strong and confident about themselves. Her collection featured sequined gowns and exquisite applique work.
The one-shoulder sequined gown is my personal favorite and I can picture myself wearing it with confidence and style.
Sonia Shre’s collection for ADW2015 “IKAT” was an attempt to actually assimilate the traditional techniques of fabric weaving that have formed the back of Indian textile legacy with the contemporary styling and silhouettes that are so much a part of the International Fashion.
Giving a stage to international designers, ADW had YOLANDA from Sri Lanka – who has been named as Asia’s top fashionable selling brand of the year’ at the Fashion Asia Awards in China - presented her international collection on the Day 1 of the Fashion week.
Indian Designer Rahul Singh who is an alumni of NIFT, and has worked with leading Bollywood actors, also showcased his powerful collection, aimed at mature, composed and calm women of substance, on Day 1.
Closing the first day of ADW 2015 was the Powerhouse of Talent and the very creative designer LARISA KATZ from Germany who left the audience spellbound with her timeless collection of dresses created with waste and recycled products to create awareness on global environmental & waste problems.
Stay tuned for the Day 2 highlights of ADW !
