Indore Fashion Week

14 Mar

Fashion aficionados in Indore were eagerly waiting for the Fashion Week coming to Indore, which finally did take place in Sayaji Hotel on the 8th, 9th and 10th March 2013. The Fashion Week has been taking place in a number of major cities in India but never before in Indore, an upcoming city that is in the dead centre of India and also known affectionately as the mini Mumbai. I got invited to attend it. It was a spectacular event and a great place to hobnob with the established designers.

Indore Fashion Show March 2013

There were nine designers who took part in Indore fashion week. Designers came from Mumbai, Bhopal, New York, Indore and Dubai. Many of these designers have participated in various major fashion weeks such as New York fashion week, Paris Fashion week, London Fashion week and Milan Fashion week. They have designed for Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities and Models. Each designer had a celebrity show stopper to walk the ramp.

On Friday Megha Grover showcased her collection The cotton, patch work embroidered border Anarkali suits looked beautiful and stunning. I very much liked the Patiala Salwar and Kurta top as it looked very summery, a good highlight for this summer season.

Everyone waited to see celebrity designer Rocky S collection of black evening dresses made with heavy Crepe, Georgette, Chiffon and Suede trims. The black dresses had silver embellishment of crystals, shell buttons, shinny matte sequins, antique kundan stones. The dresses stood out on the catwalk and had a western contemporary look so them.

On Sat the first designer was Mumtaz Khan who showcased his collection named ‘Begums’. I was particularly looking forward to Mumtaz Khan’s collection as I had heard so much about him. Well, I was not disappointed, the way the fabrics and colours were put together were amazing, the use of golden and silver made it look grand and exquisite. His collection represented a glimpse of the Mughal period. He wanted people to appreciate the handcrafted Zari and Zardozi traditions of Bhopal. The handcrafted work he used in the collection worked well together to make a beautiful yet extraordinary collection. I loved the way he used the Bagh print, Block print, Batik, Chanderi and the embellishment of Zari and Zardozi in his collection. There was one outfit that stood out and which I liked very much where he had used orange, brown batik fabric and gold block print. It looked very bright and colourful.

The next two collections by Aslam Khan and Archana Kochar were brilliant the Sherwani, Lengha, Saris and black evening dresses looked awesome as from the collections you saw on this day you can see that Haute Couture has come to Indore.

On the last day of Indore fashion week showcased Indore host designer Poonam Vohra. Her collection The Inherent ‘Blush’ was just brilliant. The light pastel colours in soft greens, pinks, olive,peach could be seen in the Anarkali dresses, Patiyala Salwars, Sarees. The colours and designs just flowed together, which made her collection stand out. She worked with Maheshwari fabric being the fabric of the State.

The next collection by Riyaz Gangji, the menswear collection stood out . The Bandh galas and the embellished Shawani were great. Riyaz Gangji showcased a good collection of formal and heavy wear in dark blue, golden, black and whites.

The grand finally designer was New York designer Sanjana Jon. Her collection had a message to share of women empowerment and saving the girl child. The collection was colourful. I imagine it will be popular with young girls and guys, giving out a trendy look . The collection definitely put the message across.

I enjoyed all the shows at Indore Fashion week and would definitely come again to attend a similar fashion week in India. I have attached some of the pictures for you to relish too.
