Why Should Bikers 'Hide' All the Fun?

You know you’re in for one heck of a night when a fashion show opens with a set of adorable kids holding hands and walking the ramp. And if the kids weren’t enough to melt your heart, the range of plush leather jackets, bad-boy leather pants and colourful bags would have certainly done the trick.

At least, that’s what the organisers of The Leather Fashion Show 2014 seemed to have had in mind. Who said leather was just for the bikers? With leggy lasses sporting bold dresses and short skirts to tough-looking men wearing brightly coloured jackets and 70s, disco glasses – let’s just say leather wasn’t the sole reason the temperature in the room went up a couple of notches on Saturday. The two showstoppers of the evening, Parvathy Omanakuttan and Rochelle Rao helped too.

This annual fashion show saw more than 10 top brands — including Tata Garments, Unipel, AVT, D2 and Calonge, showcasing their range of leather clothes, shoes and bags. If leather was one unifying factor in the fashion show, the other was the bright candy colours that were used throughout several sequences. Unipel’s showcase, prepared in association with Chaitanya Rao, had bold colours inspired by the 70s with their range of  trousers  and shorts for both men and women.

The other stand-out sequence of the evening was Tata Garments’ collection that  screamed ‘rock chic’. The models sported uber-cool leather jackets with faces on them, contrasted by psychedelic sunglasses that really set off the ensemble. The whole mood of the sequence went up a notch when neon jackets came in at the end of it.

Two must-mention collections were D2’s set of short dresses, leather skirts bordered with lace and peplum tops, and Orient Express’ lightweight collection that married cotton with leather in their line of box-pleated skirts and some fantastic boots.

The grand finale, and rightly so, belonged to Calonge and their range of handbraided accessories.
