    Churning out a modern day garment by taking inspiration from the Indian heritage seemed to be a trend on the first day of AIFWAW 2016. Rina Dhaka’s Autumn- Winter ’16 showcase no different, but so much more.

    Dhaka believes that clothing although necessary should not be monotonous. Her collection of dressy knits and woollens was a testament to her belief. With a neat and sleek ponytail and clanking booties and wide belts, the garments looked chic and no-nonsense and almost business-like.

    With Ikat and Chinar prints, the collection managed to amuse the audience with its intricate silhouette. The collection played a great deal with off-shoulders, boat necks, ruffles and raw edges.

    The collection began with tone-on-tone garments that included form-fitting dresses and shimmery and sequined cardigans. It graduated to prints using black, green and red. The effect created was almost gothic. The neckline used was often ruffled or off-shouldered with fur. An occasional natural print and paisley blouse were also seen. This eclectic collection will sure add some oomph in the upcoming season.
