Snazzy Threads

Fashion shows are always are a great time for the eternally tardy. Seriously, try as you might — it’s actually difficult to be ‘late’ for one. So when the final collection of day one at Chennai Fashion Week rolled around at half past 10 — the much awaited bridal showcase of Ritu Kumar — we were hardly surprised. But the clothes as always, were worth the wait. And the two-day event choreographed by Karun Raman attracted all of the city’s glam peeps. The show was held in association with Naturals, The Designers Council of India and Brand Avatar.

The latter that comprises a NIFT graduate-duo and new kids on the block did not fail to impress, taking most by surprise with their fun mix of the traditional paired with canvas shoes that they told us were ‘non negotiable.’ Finally, designers that understand the meaning of ‘comfortable’ fashion!

Also, a must mention was a gorgeous line by Sri Lankan designer Indrajit who brought us stunning cocktail of jewel tones — teal, rust, grey... Contemporary styling had the rich handloom fabrics draped every which way imaginable. And we loved that the mood of this collection, worked beautifully with a soundscape of tribal drums.
