Kolkata, Sept 20 (IBNS) Tollywood Actress Locket Chatterjee brought an end to the Kolkata Couture And Lifestyle Fashion Week on Sunday night in a stunning white outfit from ace designer Anju Modi.
Anju Modi showcased a collection that “captures the grandeur of the Mughal era” through Mughal Angrakhas with draped pants, layered tunics, sarees and lehengas in colours like ivory and black with a dash of maroon and made of Varanasi brocades, velvets, nets and tissues.
“The collection is called Maya and there is a little spirituality to it. The message is that life is continuous and I tried to show that how life keeps on happening as we try to see what life is, what God is and what luxury truly is,” Modi remarked.
Designer Jattinn Kochhar presented a collection called “Black Magic” where black, metallic ash highlights and various interpretations of the classic zebra print were displayed in the form of gowns, cocktail dresses and jumpsuits in asymmetrical shoulder, drapes, pinafore and empire line.
“The collection has a hint of black magic but everything is simple and all of it is wearable,” Kochhar said.
Designer duo Paras and Shalini brought forward a collection called “Whispering Flowers” while presenting a reinterpretation of old world charm with its feminine and delicate look.
“The dresses are very elegant, pretty and feminine. There is a lot of tonal work and we have used symphony embroidery,” Paras said.
Supermodel Sanjugta Das, decked in an exquisite purple dress was the highlight of the collection called “Zaver” from designer Amit Talwar which tried to infuse the glamour of “Zaver” (jewellery) to the clothes themselves by using embroidery while keeping the elements detachable and hence the dresses wearable under all circumstances.
“I wanted to give a glamorous look while keeping it all subtle and covered. With the festive mood kicking in I believe my collection can showcase that,” Talwar stated.
Tollywood actress Sreelekha Mitra walked on the ramp in a green and red saree from designers Ruchika, Sangeeta and Sidhant presenting a collection that signifies the desires of the bride to be.
Designer Sonya Gakhar showcased a collection of attires based on the changes in the lifestyle of Buddha and she combined traditional organic material with glamorous ones like pure silk to create attires that regaled the audience present.
It was a day for upcoming designers like Satyam and Kapil duo who tried to present the attitude of a prince through their line up while the designer duo of Prashant and Chiranjit presented a collection inspired by the handiwork of the Gujrati nomad tribes along with the designer duo of Reshmi and Karan who exhibited a line up of dresses that tried to fuse the Indian with the western.
