The first day of the Blenders Pride Fashion tour witnessed a collaboration between couturier Anju Modi, Eros International and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’. Inspired by the unique, timeless and rich legacy highlighting the history of Bajirao, the collection was a fusion of traditional Marathi outfits and authentic Persian costumes. Bringing the era to life was actor Deepika Padukone, walking the ramp donning the final creation by the designer.
The second day at the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour 2015 kicked off with designers Abraham & Thakore’s collection ‘The Sustainability Project’. Taking inspiration from the recycled remnants of cotton, silk, hooks and buttons (collectively known as Kantha), the ensembles marked influences of exquisite detailing and classic garment shapes for a timeless Indian wardrobe. The designer duo recreated a unique collection of silhouettes with antique brocades, sequins, laces in shades of ivory, charcoal, coffee, plum etc.
Also showcasing his collection on the second day was Designer Rahul Mishra. His collection ‘The Village’ was a contemporary story of the natural coexistence of nature and mankind. Epitomising elegance with distinguished craftsmanship, the collection was a blend of trench dresses, jackets, trousers, sheer skirts in shades of white, nude, black and violet handcrafted to perfection. Making models dance to the beats of jazz-and-blues influenced electronica was Madboy/Mink, whose music made everybody groove. With actor Neha Dhupia as showstopper, the show was a complete delight to the eyes.
