On Friday, runway inspiration ranged from opera glam to Czech painter Alphonse Mucha’s work
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.
