No fashion week is complete without trend predictions for the upcoming season. Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 was a riot of colours, designs, silhouettes with a whiff of spring. Here are the top 7 trends from the runway that are sure to make your spring wardrobe more colourful.
Designers Hemant and Nandita brought retro and Aztec back and blended them flawlessly. The duo also borrowed a page from their Indian roots and presented garments with ikat weaves. Their looks were completed with sky high wedges, round vintage sunglasses and handbags. Designer duo Shivan and Narresh’s resort wear consisted of cut-out monokinis and trikinis with sharp lines breaking away from the usual spring pastels. Their line inspired by Calder’s work used shades of brown, white and black complete with strappy heels. Designer Rajesh Pratap Singh’s line titled blue-blood displayed organic denims made out of woven khadi for men and women. The collection celebrated the versatility of denims complete with prints, metals, stripes, checks and polka dots. The label ‘Ashish N Soni’ by Ashish Soni displayed a line inspired by feathers. Crisp white rompers, dresses and separates for women made quite the statement for spring. Suits, jackets and pants with feather print made the cut for menswear.
Festivities took to the runway when designer Masaba Gupta’s models walked the catwalk donning firecrackers and jasmine flowers in place of a parandi. The line had a piece for every woman saris, dresses and suits with firecracker and zodiac prints along with statement neck pieces and sparkly embellishments. The queen of kitsch, Nida Mahmood’s collection ‘Good Luck Irani Cafe’ was fashionable, entertaining and comprehensive. The designer displayed dresses, shorts, saris in quirky summer prints paired with headgears made from flowers, ribbons, scarves and ballerinas made out of socks. Sporty chic got a metallic makeover with designer Shweta Kapur’s label 431-88. LBDs, crop tops, skirts and maxi dresses with black sequined panel detailing teamed with sport shoes and slippers made for the perfect evening statement.
