    Designer duo Shyamal and Bhumika showcased their aw18 collection on Day 1 of the ongoing Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Autumn-Winter 2018.

    India meet Paris, being the running theme of the collection screamed throughout the designs as the line showcased colors like green and blue, had voluminous skirts with pockets, belts that held the dupattas well and oversized sunglasses. The menswear was mostly black but had lots of weaving, hand craft and embroidery on rich fabrics like silk and velvet.

    Speaking about the collection, ‘A Parisian Symphony’, designer duo Shyamal & Bhumika told the media ,”The mood is Paris and we have envisioned it through our muse who is always very willing to dress extraordinarily, for an evening at the Opera or be excited about what she wears,” said Bhumika.

    Model-turned-actress Diana Penty, lit up the runway as she turned muse for the designer duo and closed the show. Dressed in a velvet cowl neck top and a emerald green heavily embroidered matka silk skirt teamed with a black belt. With no accessories on and hair pinned back, theactress completely nailed the sophisticated and elegant look effortlessly.

    “It also depends a lot on what you are wearing so if you are wearing something big and heavy, something is slipping off, then it is stressful. Today, I am feeling comfortable. I can move easily. I am not wearing ridiculously high heels. I am just going to take a stroll on the ramp,”Diana told the media post-show.

    “Our mission is India to the world. When we made our Fall 2018 collection, we used a lot of rich, hand-woven silks, used a lot of hand-craft, so the whole setting was Autumn in Europe and there’s this muse of ours who is dressing up for the night out,” Shyamal added.

    Elaborating on the colour story,Bhumika said that since it’s an Autumn/Winter line they included a lot of jewel tones, lot of tulles and velvets. Even the embroideries, Bhumika added, have a paintedly feel to it,that complement the colour and silhouettes really well.
