‘Everything but the Girl’

Deepak showcased a sharp and trendy menswear collection for FPW A/W 2014. The designs were chic, with edgy silhouettes boasting immaculate tailoring. An infusion of silk, chiffon, digital prints, wool, leather, suede and velvet, using a rich color palette, accentuated the jackets and waistcoats. The slim fit suits and sherwanis with fitted trousers had the makings of a novel and fresh collection. Sikander Rizvi & Adnan Malik made a celebrity appearance for Deepak and both men received a loud cheer from the crowd, as they rocked the ramp with their dashing looks glamorised by Deepak’s ensembles.

An exquisite luxury pret collection, ‘Ravissant’ is a blend of chic evening wear with a splash of sparkle for the festive winter season. The collection adds elegance to the wardrobe of the confident modern woman. The silhouettes, constructed with plush fabrics and a hint of dazzle, convey sophistication. Maheen used black velvet, infused sheer netting, and the subtle use of gleaming bead-lets enhanced the ensembles. Bold lamés accentuated the lean feminine form. The ‘Ravissant’ experience was further glamorised by Sherezad’s breathtaking jewellery.




2. Shehla Chatoor 


Shehla’s creativity always lights up the catwalk. Her play on leather rendered a truly luxurious and stunning collection. Inspired by the autumnal landscapes on both Byobu — the Japanese tradition of artisanal hand-painted folding paper screens and Fusuma panels — Shehla incorporated intricate Japanese basket weaving techniques and the quilting redolent of Samurai warriors.

A wintry palette of black, beige, nude and gold together with leather detailing on luxe cape jackets, peek-a-boo cropped tops and mini-to-midi cocktail dresses, was juxtaposed with trendy voluminous ball skirts and floor skimming gowns. Sheer lace and printed sarees with edgy blouses, accented with leather fur accents added an eastern flair to the collection. Sporty T-shirts and  jackets worn with leather track pants which gave a very modern Tokyo vibe. The long skirts have already left a notable mark and are a must-have for this season.




1. Ayesha Farook Hashwani


Ayesha Farook Hashwani certainly knows how to raise the bar. Her latest collection at the FPW represented the dream wardrobe for winter. Opulent blacks and maroons, golds and silver, textured fabrics and the interpretation of the kimono took the runway collection to another league. The ‘Baroque’ collection exuded elegance and sophistication. Capes, jackets and boots befitting winter, with waists made slimmer using leather belts, Ayesha gave a refreshing look to the catwalk and stole the show!




Good Times
