It’s a vis­ual treat to see a blend of vin­tage and con­tem­po­rary on the run­way. And, Day 5 of the on­go­ing In­dia Cou­ture Week 2017, or­gan­ised by Fash­ion De­sign Coun­cil of In­dia with as­so­ciate part­ner Hin­dus­tan Times, was high on both tra­di­tional and fu­sion glam­our.

Mod­els walked the run­way wear­ing cock­tail gowns and con­tem­po­rary saris. Monisha Jaising’s col­lec­tion was ti­tled Opera and she used fab­rics like Ital­ian or­ganza and me­tal­lic satin, per­fect for a high-glam­our event. The show was a vis­ual break from all the tra­di­tion­al­wear that has taken on the run­way in the past few days.

The day ended with de­signer Varun Bahl’s Dream Nou­veau col­lec­tion, in­spired from the Art Noveau pe­riod, with cre­ations in­flu­enced by the work of Czech pain­ter Alphonse Mucha. The vin­tage flo­rals and graphic prints added a classy touch to floor-length anarkalis, while the men had mod­ern kurta-jacket pair­ings to choose from.
