Gauri and Nainika, the evening wear fashion mavericks know fashion is a powerful tool and they used it wisely this season to bring awareness to global warming. Global warming is a hitting crisis and they’ve used the striking colours of our beautiful planet to help form a connect with the audience. The show opens with modern silhouettes in the form of a blue pencil dress with a melting ice patch on it. It transcends to illusions of melting glaciers and subliminal impressions of continents. Asymmetrical hemlines, body-con shapes and flowing textures have been incorporated into the silhouette. The show then moves onto printed dresses and gowns with prints of a used car dump, dried up lakes, gas emissions printed on a pencil dress with bell sleeves, and my favourite from the collection the maxi dresses with the mesmerizingly striking melting glacier print. It reminded of the “Queen of print”, Mary Katrantzou’s design aesthetics. The collection concluded with a series of elegant gowns with box pleats, asymmetrical hemlines and mermaid cuts. They were decorated with textures of bright wild flowers, emerging leaves and stems in vibrant colours against stark white. This collection caters to the women who like to dress extravagantly and for the occasion. It embraced sophistication, elegance and fantasy.
