Kolkata, Dec 13 (IBNS): The opening show on Day 1 of Blenders Pride fashion tour in Kolkata was by designers Varun Bahl and the duo of Araham & Thakore. As the audience lauded their collection, the designers shared their ideas behind the stunning works.

Varun Bahl, who launched his label in 2001, showcased his collection that was mainly revisiting his experiences of the last 10 years.

The collection of Varun Bahl is inspired by the Indian artwork with a western tinge to it. The design mostly includes floral work with a lot of net and western techniques placed in it. The dresses were mainly of thick crape, georgette and net.

“I have experimented with a lot of net fitted t-shirts with some beautiful embroidery, palazzo pants and dresses. My design is something that is very progressive and then moves on to be classy. I have experimented with colours like black, white, grey, pale blue, pink and red,” said  ace designer Varun Bahl.

Speaking on the City of Joy he said, “People in Kolkata have a great taste of fashion. It’s one of the biggest consumers in Indian fashion. The city is very fashionable about Indian clothes but a bit conservative in western attire.”

The second designer duo of the evening who showcased their amazing collection was Abraham and Thakore who have always set their own rules sticking to the philosophy of contemporary Indian garments. The dresses were a combination of Indian traditional dresses like sarees and salwars with western outfits like jackets with it.

Speaking about the collection, the designer duo Abraham & Thakore said, “We have spent many months developing this collection. Our collection for Blenders pride fashion tour is all about wild silk and trying to do something new with it. We tried to develop new structures by taking it to places where it is woven like Andhra Pradesh, Varanasi etc.”

The theme of our collection is urban safari and we have made a lot of combinations. We have designed our dresses keeping a strong, independent and active woman in mind. We have used colour palates like gold, cream, and ivory and teamed them with black and white. It’s a very cohesive collection because we have played with very less colours. We have used few accessories like belts” they added.

Ambika Pillai and team have done the make up for the show.
