Saaksha & Kinni by Saaksha and Kinnari
The bold collection using fabrics like chiffon and chanderi, along with metal woven sheets with thread and cut work.
While black dominated the runway, this collection saw bursts of colour like this one.
The designers step into the limelight with their models.
Integument by Deepak Pathak
With Integument, Deepak Pathak, 30, played around with techniques like jacquard knitting and Flock printing
Flock printing is a process in which fibers of rayon, cotton, wool or another natural or synthetic material are applied to an adhesive-coated surface.
He included fabrics like felt, wool blend and twill suiting to create edgy looks.
Meet the man behind the creation.
BLONI by Akshat Bansal
Akshat Bansal's collection explores age old techniques like tie and dye and crochet.
The inspiration was unconventional -- snow-clad mountains and science of nature that was cleverly recreated in a monochrome look.
The idea was to create a collection that remains androgynous at its core.
The designer shares the limelight with his models.
Anaam by Sumiran
The collection featured an unstoppable, unbeatable army of warriors from the infamous district who march headfirst in flowy uniforms.
Sharma creatively used silhouette generation techniques that involve a mix of draping and pattern making.
Kudos to this young GenNext designer for ensuring minimum to zero wastage of fabric during production.
Untitled Co. by Shenali and Rinzin
Their designs were driven by embroidery techniques, surface treatments and fabric manipulation.
The duo attempted to create wearable pieces of art, reminiscent of Japanese printmaking.
Meet the creative minds behind the collection, Shenali, 32, and Rinzin, 38.
