As if Day 1 of India Beach Fashion Week 2017 wasn’t enough to knock your
socks sandals off, Summer Surprise hits you with another lineup of cutting edge fashion.
Gujarat based designers Shyamal & Bhumika presented an incredible finale with their Destination Bride collection. This dynamic duo, well-known for ethnic wear designs that strongly reflect a passion for craft and heritage, stunned the crowd with a line inspired by the cheerful spring mood evocative of blooming flowers and fragrant winds.
Q: Is it really India Beach Fashion Week without a beach side show?
A: Of course not!
Lalit Dalmia‘s drama-filled showcase was the ultimate #ThrowbackTuesday moment, transporting the audience back to the Victoria era with its full silhouettes, fine materials, and delicate embroideries. A palette of pistachio greens, burgundy, plums, peaches, navy, and eggshell whites accompanied a Goan sunset at the Marriott Resort and Spa. As if the collection wasn’t memorable enough of its own, the show came to a spectacular end with a model tango and Mohammed and Lucky Morani gracing the ramp.
Ever thought about where the phrase “pretty in pink” comes from?
My guess is that it originates from the moment that actress and bombshell Kriti Sanon closing for Sukriti & Aakriti. (Okay fine, it totally existed beforehand but the phrase is just more relevant now!)
I was #blessed with the opportunity to sit down with actress Richa Chadha for an exclusive interview during Day 3 to talk Indian fashion:
What are your top 3 favourite trends this season?
“I like metallics! I’m also liking the anti-fitted loose look that’s happening right now, and I love the layering. These are three things that I’ve been trying myself.”
What do you think is the future of beachwear in India?
“I think the future is very bright for beachwear in India. People are starting to take holidays around the world. Every weekend, people are here in Goa. Bombay is also a coastal city, so beachwear is definitely coming up!”
