New Delhi, Oct 14 (UNI) It was avant-garde fashion and chutzpah at their resplendent best as a cornucopia of colour, razzmatazz, designs and fabrics was unleashed during designer Abhijit Khann's show on Day One of Delhi Fashion Week which saw drop-dead gorgeous models having sylphlike figures scorching the runway.
Though the day started on a rather dull note with designer Rajvi Mohan's show, Abhijit's show added much-needed glitter and glimmer to the event that it needed.
Contrast and juxtaposition in colour made Abhijit's collection incredibly alluring.
Talking to UNI, Abhijit said his collection has taken inspiration from extravagant Indian styling of French Rococo using spectrum of colours and silk fabrics with ornate embellishments of hand embroidery.
The style'Insignificant but Extravagant' is surrounded by comfortable and tasty, the magnificent, the luxurious, the richness sophisticated visual world and the softness which surrounds everything in it, he added.
His label was of eclectic sensibilities, combining an affinity for simplicity with an instinct for the embellished. It reflects strong Indian influences in terms of techniques like hand embroidery and block prints even as it exudes global appeal with its silhouettes and palette.
Abhijit said his label caters to the International Pret high fashion market and it was also being showcased at London Fashion Week and India Fashion Week.
The show will be seeing the participation of 35 couturiers and has confirmation of around 150 buyers.
Tomorrow heavyweight designer Tarun Tahiliani's collection is expected to grab all the eyeballs.
