This was my first ever Bangalore Fashion Week. I was overjoyed and grateful to receive the invitation. This being my first time, I was clueless as to what happens at a fashion show. I couldn’t attend the first day but made sure would sit back and watch all they show for the next three days. It’s always fun to know what’s new and trendy in the fashion industry. With so much creativity around you it’s never a bad idea to make time for a fashion week. The 16th edition Bangalore fashion week was filled with handloom, denim, kalamkari, silk and loads of embroidery work.
I was actually looking forward to some amazing innovative and bohemian fashion but unfortunately it was mostly traditional. There were few designers like Parinita, Amita Gupta and Pria Kataria Puri who showcased an indo-western themed collection rather than the typical traditional wear. I am pretty excited to bring to you my personal favourites from The Bangalore Fashion Week.
Parinita’s collection was inspired by Yakshas – a theatre dance form called Yakshagana. Matched to the creative expression of extravagance, drama, and rhythmic movement associated with the dance form. The collection was filled with bold colours, checks, Kolhapuris (which is also a part of Pariha) and layers.
Inspired by the era of silks, Ashok Mannay showcased his creativity with radiating craft and colours. The silk was typical colours of day, gold, beige, ivory with intricate embroidery work. The glamours silhouettes not only were elegant but dreamy. He celebrates the Indian sari with an element of mystery and enigma.
Pria Kataria Puri is known as the Kaftan and resort-wear queen. The beautifully designed Kaftans are for all sizes. The collection showcased was bold, fun and edgy which are perfect for summer 0r beach day. The collection has a Kashmiri influence, crafted in silk and satin. It incorporates new styles of kaftan silhouettes like a maxi kaftan, jumpsuits, palazzos, dresses, tops, blouses and rompers in pure Italian silk. Off shoulder and cold shoulder cuts, bohemian sleeves, structured hemlines lend a feminine grace to the ensembles. Bold bikinis and racy cut-out swimsuits with complementing cover-ups are perfect for a beach date.
Police showcased their trendy accessories at the Bangalore Fashion Week. The show was fun and bold. Police introduced the urban lifestyle accessories with a fearless attitude that stands out for their strength of creativity. They showcased their collections of bags, sunglasses and boots at The Bangalore Fashion Week.
That was all about my experience at Wear.Style Bangalore Fashion Week 16th Edition.
