The second day of the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) commenced today with collections which focused essentially on the autumn and winter designs.
Mumbai based designer Ruchika Sachdeva's untitled collection comprised of contemporary and over sized jackets teamed with midis and dresses. She has especially designed few handwoven fabrics to suit the fall.
The fabrics saw the fine blend of Khadis with silk and cotton.
"My collection was inspired by the clothing of tribals. I have used mixed fabrics and left my dresses over sized because I wanted to bring the relax mood. I also wanted to show that wearing over sized items are not out dated rather they are very much in. My collection used block prints and a lot of natural dyes too," said Sachdeva at the post-show.
Focusing on the same trend, designer Paromita Banerjee's collection took inspiration from Japan's Boro technique of mending and recycling textiles.
She has used a cluster of fabrics ranging from jamdani to malkha cotton in one outfit.
"Through my collection, I have tried to fill the space between glamorous and normal. India never has a freezing cold climate and that is why my fabrics are light and few of them can be even worn in Spring. I have researched a lot for this collection and prints were taken from Japan's archival textiles," Banerjee said.
The collection also saw a wide range of shawls and scarves.
Designer Tanvi Kedia's collection saw a very feminine collection with mish-mash of digital prints. Models sashayed down the ramp donning the hippie look in dresses, jackets, tunics and skirts.
