Day 5

AISHA RAO

Titled “Pastiche” Aisha Rao’s fashionable artistic line is an ode to the still life work of Melbourne born artist Criss Cannings,Australia’s rich floral bouquet of Banksias, Gumnuts, Oriental Poppies, Tamarillos, persimmons and Madonna lilies in vibrant colours were seen. For Aisha her “Pastiche” collection was her ‘Ikigai’ that showcased season less up cycled luxury fashion along with sustainable directions that were seamlessly merged with hand crafted techniques that made a timeless fashion offering.

Design Aesthetics
  • The amazing use of socks wastes to create an upcycled collection – bands that are discarded in the production of socks –  incorporated into surface embroidery with appliqués.
  • She used Indian craft techniques to create occasion wear that could fit into any wardrobe. There was just the right mix of western and Indian silhouettes— were saris, sleek tunics, narrow pants, cropped blouses, gowns, skirts and more.
Color Card

The collection is a kaleidoscope of colours that fitted perfectly in the theme of the show.

Titled ‘‘Muneer’’ (Arabic word which means ‘‘bright’’) ”Muneer” comes from a place of hope and belief that there is always light at the end of the tunne. Punit Balana’s collection is a beautiful mélange of the most amazing prints,The collection is  a mix of Indian and Western silhouettes-lehengas, cholis, dupattas, and kurtas well as low-crotch, draped, dhotis, strappy bustier, drawstring batwing blouses and asymmetrical trapeze midi skirts.

Design Aesthetics
  • The collection lays great emphasis on sustainability so contemporary Indian silhouettes created using eco-friendly techniques, handcrafted embroideries and organic fabric.
  • The collection showcased block prints in natural organic dyes from his home state of Rajasthan to highlight the varying silhouettes and construction of the garments.
  • The unique coin work in Pink Resham used for the first time by Punit .

The collection is all about positivity, so bright festive colors dominated by shades of pink are used.
