NY Fashion Week: Sabyasachi


So you all know that while Fashion Week is on in India, there’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week happening in New York, right at the same time. And today Sabyasachi was showing! Oh, I was so excited, thats one designer I was absolutely looking forward to seeing, so imagine my surprise when I acually saw the collection!

I am devastated. It felt as if all that is trademark Sabyasachi was missing and that might have been a good thing if he was trying to move away from the cliché but instead, it just felt lacking! I know am being harsh, but from a designer with his calibre, expectations always tend to run impossibly high.

Not all was bad though. Some pieces were exceptional.

But all in all, was left wondering, is this it? This can’t be it! Is it?

NY Fashion Week: Ashish Soni


While the Wills India Fashion Week is going on in India, the NY Fashion week is also happening and there are a couple of Indian designers that are showcasing their work. One of them is Ashish Soni, who is making his third appearance this year.

Called the “Sporty” collection, it had a lot of soft colors. Soni stuck mostly to grey and white, with a few outfits in yellow and pink. There was a definite bit of Indian influences. He had outfits that were accompanied by Nehru “style” jackets. Some of the pants had very churidar style look and a lot of the dresses and tops have that Rajasthani flairy kurta note to them. Overall, a great collection with some pieces that can be worn every day..

Here is a look at the collection.

Also to be noted is the silver jewellery designed by Arvind Agarwal of Arvino.
