In Rahul Singh

Swara attended MAMI 2018 on Friday wearing a maxi by Rahul Singh. At first glance, I liked the maxi quite a bit until I noticed the bra. With the maxi itself having the sheer portion so low, am not sure you could avoid the issue of the inner wear showing. Unless you wore a bandeau strapless one or a skin colored bodysuit.

So, was this appearance better than yesterday? We sure think so! Irrespective of the fact that all the flash made the bra very visible.

WLIFW Spring 2013: Rahul Singh, Manish Gupta, Ritesh Kumar

Rahul Singh

In his collection, Rahul Singh used tie-dye to give his fabrics different patterns. The results while interesting definitely needed to be taken to the next level. The way the pieces were put together/styling seemed off too.

Manish Gupta

Titled ‘Primrose’, Manish Gupta’s collection as the name would suggest was influenced by the flower. In nudes and blush-pinks, the mood was soft for Sprig-Summer. Some of the looks, very wearable. But hardly exciting.

Ritesh Kumar

This was one of the collections that definitely stood out with its use of texture, color, layering and silhouettes. The dress on the far right with the sheer layered on jacket was among the favorites.

WLIFW A/W 2011: Day Two (Part Deux!)

The theme of Rahul Singh’s collection, Sea of Science, was made evident by the use of only blue and white as the color scheme. But, the designer didn’t let the two colors at hand limit the possibilities. There were plenty of tunics, dresses and separates presented in chiffon and satin.

Saaj By Ankita’s collection was a tribute to Ladakh. While the craftwork may have been more Ladakh oriented, we saw a lot of traditional dance costume influences in the collection with the fan-shaped pleats and the use of bordered fabrics appearing in multiple outfits. Would be really interested in seeing someone wear one these off the runway.

Sonia Jetleey’s collection Pot Pourri started with a model wearing a “Baroque is in style” tee. What followed were long skirts, jodhpur pants, kaftans, tunics and even a sari with baroque motifs. Also part of the collection were vegetable tanned handbags and boots. With the added ombre-effect, some of the outfits felt too busy.

Rajdeep Ranawat & Naresh Chauhan’s label Zurhke was heavy on floral digital prints featuring in tunics, dresses and kaftans. There was also heavy use of embroidery but the most striking piece was the coat presented at the end (below right).

Moulin Rouge was the theme of Preeti Chandra’s collection that consisted of voluminous skirts, one-shoulder dresses and gowns and jumpsuits with trains. There was a bit of old world glamor infused in the collection by way of long gloves, tiaras and lace but one could not help but see a lot of borrowed ideas, especially in the white gown that was very reminiscent of Dolce & Gabbana.

Simple shift dresses made interesting by way of quilting, floral embellishment and color-mixing marked Zubair Kirmani’s collection. In keeping with the winter theme, black was the base color used through-out.

Label’s autumn/winter collection continued to present what the design house is best known for. There was traditional jacquards, woolen blends, silk lycra and jerseys with block prints and eombroidery.
