New Delhi: From Victorian era and modern-day nomad to the tones of greys inspired by after-life, day three of Amazon India Fashion Week saw an array of contrasting inspirations.

Designer Anju Modi showed different layers of the sky while Ashima Leena conjured an opulent twist by interweaving motifs that adorn the architectural realms of Khiva. Drama and grunge dominated Namrata Joshipura’s collection.

 

Karishma Shahani Khan, Sahil Kochhar and Pallavi Singhee opened the day with their vibrant collections. Designer Siddartha Tytler followed with his collection ‘Metamorphosis of the Macabre’. The models walked the ramp in shades of grey and black adorning masks, representing the ‘after-life’ theme.  “I am fascinated by the concept of after-life,  and I tried to capture it in a glamourous, sophisticated and elegant way,” said the designer.

Ashima Leena conjured an opulent twist by interweaving motifs that adorn the architectural realms of Khiva in her collection, ‘Charukesha’.

The designer gave birth to a dimension of modernism captured through sculptured skirts, quaint pashmina blouses, tribal gilets, asymmetric kurtas and deftly composed sarees.

 

Unearthing the hidden treasures of textile heritage, Anju Modi presented an architecture-inspired collection Neelambar. Actor Sakshi Tanwar walked the ramp for the veteran designer.

Talking about being the muse of Anju and walking the ramp, Sakshi said, “I think the confidence came because of my theatre background as there also you are in a direct contact with light with no one visible. I loved all of Anjuji’s creation.”

Designer duo Shivan and Narresh’s collection ‘Egon Series’ was inspired from legendary painter Egon Schiele’s twisted body forms. Their show was set amidst Schiele’s works and featured animation of his celebrated works featuring landscapes and riversides to contorted human figures.

 

Namrita Joshipura with her New York-inspired collection transformed the ramp into a subway platform with graffiti, giving it a hip-hop city look. The models wore bomber jackets and sequined shorts.

Actor Alia Bhatt was the showstopper for the designer. She walked the ramp wearing an emerald jumpsuit with sexy, high front-cuts on the bottom and a one-sided shoulder strap. “I think Namrata, Maybelline, and I were all on the same page on what we had to do. I had loads of fun,” said the star.

The curtain rolled with Malini Ramani paying odd to the modern-day nomad and designer Schulen Fernandes, creative head of Wendell Rodricks label, interpretation of rose in different forms: in cut metallic leather, layered organza, floating georgette and structured cotton satin.
