Genderless on the Ramp of Abraham & Thakore at AIFWAW17

Fashion shows which have exciting setups are the ones I look most forward to. Although I was put off by the first look of Abraham & Thakore's ramp, yet I went ahead and sat in the media pit (which is quite a pain if you ask me) to get the best shots of the show. The 'Back to Work' show was opened by the stunning Lakshmi Rana in a tuxedo shirt and pyjamas. (If not the audience then I was pretty satisfied with this autumn-winter trend!)
Next came a line of the most comfortable looking clothes which also happened to look really trendy. The shade palette will be perfect for blending in any kind of work place. (Hello corporate fashion)
From churidar pants to choga jackets, from angarkha jackets to lungis, all fabrics used were of pure cotton. This was because the designers wanted to introduce a solution for all the individuals who are made to work in the heat. Ladies, stock this collection before it's too late.



The highlight of this show was when the male models were seen in bindis and lipstick and the women models in ties and nehru jackets. Clothes taken from both the genders were seen to be interchanged on the ramp to eliminate the idea of gender specific dressing. Indeed, a bold move. Abhraham & Thakore had my heart after they portrayed this beautiful concept. 
Something refreshing and comforting was seen on the show because of simple separates and subtle colors. 






The first day of AIFW was everything that I had hoped for and in some instances even better. This time with backstage, street style and the runway to cover, I will get to experience a completely new side of the fashion week. Here's hoping it gets only better!


Until next time.

Spring Comes Early.

Don't know about you but I was pretty bummed about the fact that Spring came early this year. I'm a sucker for Winters and now all I can think about is how badly I'm going to get tanned. (And imagine, March has JUST started.)
Recently I payed a visit to Sarojini Nagar where I was only able to spot clothes with bad quality and bad designs. I was nearly heartbroken when I stumbled upon this super pretty playsuit with a floral print. (Even my best friend had eyes on it!) For 300 bucks, it was a great purchase. I styled this playsuit with comfortable flats and a peachish-pink shoulder bag from Koovs.
