Designer Varun Bahl opened AIFW AW 2016 with his show named “Nocturn”, and what an opening show was it! He played around with motifs, plenty of different textures, sheer layers, earthy tones and what not! But one thing that dominated his collection was flower power. The collection was filled with beautiful floral prints and patchworks, carefully telling a story of a modern woman. Take a peek at his collection below!
Akaaro by Gaurav Jai Gupta
Think winter layering, steel-shades, minimalistic with bright stripes all packed up in structured aand un-structured silhouettes! Yes that pretty much sums up what we witnessed at Gaurav Jai Gupta show at AIFW AW 2016. A collection that spread fusion vibes with pants with asymmetrical capes and jackets, short kaftans, uneven palazzo and everything you would want for winters. Take a look below!
