Runway Tales From Kingfisher Ultra Kochi Fashion Week
Thu, November 07, 2013
From Jattinn Kochhar’s popsicle pop colours and sporty silhouettes to Ishita Singh’s rendition of graceful strength in cotton and ethnic folk prints, the Kingfisher Ultra Kochi Fashion Week was a sensory style overload that never failed to disappoint.
While there was enough swag that we would pick to fill out at least 3 walk-in closets, three designers and trends stood out. Sanjana Jon’s collection of evening wear that was inspired by 80s prom dresses with their classic wilpa cut bodices and romantic flowing skirts had us at hello (and so did the pretty ladies on the ramp) Pastel shorter ones for the perfect summer night out and deeper shades of pink, indigo, velvet black and embellished creams for more exotic occasions.
Mumbai designer AD Singh’s, ‘Crystalized’ was truly a Cinderella story. Intricate embroidery, Swarovski crystals and flawless detailing came together with slimming silhouettes for the most beautiful, feminine and flamboyant bridal collection of the season. Cheers to that!
Finally, the headlining designer of the finale day of the Kingfisher Ultra Kochi Fashion Week, Aslam Khan’s creative take on classic corporate. Pant and skirt suits in ultra slim cuts and blended fabrics took over the ramp. His range for both men and women are an eye opener to every savvy executive and those with a honed enough sense of style to be able to take an artfully cut and crafted garment beyond just the boardroom. The uniform for a Good Times office!
