Pankaj & Nidhi show @ India Fashion Week F/ W 15-16
    March 31, 2015


    Taking inspiration from rocks and minerals found beneath the crust of Mother Earth, the designer duo showcased a collection that was beautifully structured and extensively detailed. In bold tones of ruby, sapphire blue, steel grey and mint; garments were apt for a glitzy red carpet event. Bell-shaped poncho coats were worn over metallic tops and high-waist flared pants. Fitted A-line dresses were adorned with a mosaic of encrusted crystals, as each garment was paired with strappy leather platforms and faux fur stoles. Boat-shaped dresses were squished here and there and double-breasted tuxedos were tailored to perfection. Floor-length column gowns were matched with embroidered clutches and extensively embellished with laser-cut sequins. Slim-fit jumpsuits with elegant jewel-encrusted bodices had cutout backlines, as floral motifs were carefully appliquéd onto knitted jumpers and duffle cardigans. Embellished body suits and Kimono-like tunics had been paired with exaggerated leggings as tapered seams cached eyes of those who are extremely-fashion conscious. Peplum tops were clasped to the waist with metallic belts as sheer trails were draped around heavily corseted bodices. A perfect juxtaposition between textures and silhouettes, form-fitting pantsuits and geometrically structured gowns had intricate triangular cutouts. Baby doll dresses with sweetheart necklines were worn under extravagant leather bombers that had patches of fur appliquéd onto them.
