Bangalore, July 24 (ANI): Bangalore's first ever fashion week is underway where nine designers showcased their collection on the first day of the event on Thursday.

A collection of feminine dresses that celebrated the essence of a woman formed part of the collection showcased by designer Zubin Vakil.

The designer made use of cages and feathers in the ensembles to denote the free spirit of the woman.

"Everything that denotes happiness and joy, and wearability and celebration of womanhood. A woman is not meant to be suppressed and caged is what I wanted to show here," said Vakil.

A collection of modern contemporary dresses by designer duo, Abhi-Rahul, also stood out for its simplicity.

Christened 'Definitely Maybe', the collection signified the moods where a person conceals something and reveals a little of the things.

Fabrics like silk, organza and nets were used in the collection that was predominantly black and white.

"The collection is all about presenting contemporary women and how they are. They are better than men. They are smarter," said Abhi.

The four-day event will have thirty designers, sixty models and 11 hours of fashion. It will conclude on July 26.

The fashion week comes after the success of the Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata fashion weeks and the organisers hope to do good business during the event. (ANI)
