IZI ATELIER BY ISABELLE MITTAL PRESENTED STYLISH FASHION AT THE TALENT BOX
Designer, Isabelle Mittal progressed further with her label, Izi Atelier and showcased fresh designs which were a continuation of her collection last season.
Inspired by Greek as well as Indian wear, the new collection titled, ‘Love and War’ was all about juxtaposition; bringing together polar opposites, structure and drapes.
Soft colours such as cotton candy pink, cherry red, ivory white made for a summer friendly colour palette while charcoal black added a hint of sophistication.
Feminine drapes along with the influence of Greek armours, made for interesting silhouettes as the line showcased peplum skirts, eyelet embellished pants, dresses and structured blouses.
Isabelle made use of gold metallic eyelets as well as gold chains on natural, eco-friendly fabrics such as bamboo, Bamberg, chiffon and ahimsa silk to mirror battlefield artillery.
As from the previous season, unique tie and dye techniques were used, this time also introducing chiffon as the main fabric.
A spectacular cherry red lexi gown made of non violent chiffon and silk with hand embroidered fringe on the shoulders along with eyelets was the key piece in this collection.
Vibrant and sassy, this collection by Isabelle Mittal will be the talk of the town.
THE INNOVATIVE COLLECTION BY SIDDHARTH ARYA WAS A STRIKING PRESENTATION AT THE TALENT BOX
Siddharth Arya’s collection, “Cosmogene” was a visually stunning representation of human thought and emotion as well as a tribute to technological advances made by mankind.
With elements from his previous collection, ‘Steam Punk’, “Cosmogene” incorporated tribal, futuristic as well as the older steam punk influences.
Silhouettes were heavily structured and contoured the body to intriguing, exaggerating shapes.
The line also showcased some of the strong almost avant-garde shoulders, which were seen in the previous season but also toned it down to appeal a wider group of buyers.
Printed bodysuits, see through pants, layered dresses, and damask-like robes wowed the audience.
Using digital prints, Siddharth Arya focused more on the detailing of his garments, embellishing them heavily by using springs, pieces of metal, raw jute cords, beads, tassels, shells and even feathers.
A number of fabrics were used from silks to lace and gauze for his dresses which also came in a number of digital prints inspired by tribal motifs like tiger stripes.
The colour palette consisted of black, grey and white, while terracotta shades were added for an earthy feel to the collection. Daring and loud, Cosmogene by Siddharth Arya was truly out of this world. Dare to be different.
