FashionFDCI x LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK

Day 5

Reynu Taandon + Nikhita

 “I M Worth It” by designers Reynu Taandon + Nikhita for their label ‘Mynah’ was just the right look for the coming season.It was a collection that elegantly and effortlessly moved from daytime fun wear to dramatic evening ensembles. 

When the sun sinks over the horizon, there were wardrobe “must haves” like the demure dresses with strategic cut outs and slinky gowns for after eight glamour. There was a marked Boho, chic, glam vibe about the garments with the colourful tribal patterns from Africa, Native America and Ethnic Europe incorporated to add more pizzazz to the collection.

Divided into three colour groups of prints, which were just right for the line of kaftans, tiered skirts, maxis, one-shoulder gowns, and separates, the collection was well structured and offered a flamboyant array of ensembles.

Drama came in the form of a cutout at the waist for a creation with intense embroidery and a slanting neckline, while the bright fuchsia and white panelled skirt with pleated hemline and tiny summer choli would be ideal holiday wear. Coordinates like the tie-up blouse with matching pants were just perfect for the coming season but it was the tiered, rust, printed skirt edged in white with a matching blouse that created a fashion statement.

 Quotes

“Our brand ‘I M WORTH IT’ wants to uplift women and show them that they all are worth it. The collection is aimed at making women feel strong and empowered, through modern silhouettes and a mix of prints to hold on to our Indian roots. I am thrilled to bring this thought across to the audience through this collection at the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week”, said co-founder Nikhita Taandon.

“I believe the ‘I M WORTH IT’ brand is about the magical moment when you start feeling confident. I wanted the designs to make women confident within themselves. The collection effortlessly moves from day to night with cut out dresses, dinner gowns and boho themes. I am grateful to present at the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week and I hope that this collection makes women everywhere feel confident”, said co-founder Reynu Taandon.

Pawan Sachdeva

When it comes to men’s wear it is the perfect cut, finish and fit that are of utmost importance and Pawan Sachdeva has always ensured that these three elements are in total harmony in his clothes.

Titled “Men Verse” that revealed a very unconventional mood,  was aimed to exude strong athletic vibes for the New Age male.

The very fast paced show opened with Aparshakti Khurana who strode down the rap in a grey belted suit with black lapels and trousers.

The shade card roster was a subdued line up in the beginning as ivory and bare tinges of beige gradually moved to grey and finally burst into bold splashes of sun yellow, strong orange and tanned blue.

The brilliant orange side buckled jacket and the beige belted kimono style one were great diverse silhouettes that Pawan brought to centre stage. Black and white was the normal staple monochrome, which appeared for a drawstring blouson and a jacket with black/white striped shawl collar.

Textures played an important role in the collection, as Pawan created effortless styles from simple basic fabrics like cotton weaves, PU, crêpe, Lycra, knits and added leather for variety.

There was a marked mix of simple constructions that aimed at achieving relaxed yet trend setting clothing with significant seamless sensibilities. The basic silhouettes were at times intact, but every garment had that free spirited vibe that was classic and yet evoked mass appeal.

“With my collection, ‘MenVerse’, I wanted to present garments with immaculate tailoring. I have used a range of fabrics – from cotton, leather, PU to crepe and lycra and kept comfort as well as style in mind. The collection, with oversized fits and flattering cuts will flatter any and everyone and I am so happy to bring these silhouettes to life on the runway at the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week”, said designer Pawan Sachdeva

The very dashing and debonair Raghav Chadha closed the show in a black suit belted with an orange closure and a polo neck shirt.
