Shillong Fashion Week Day 2- 2012

Voila!!! Finally Shillong has its own fashion week.  Unfortunately due to family day out, I couldn't attend the first day but I'm glad I manage to attend the final show.  I must say it was a very great experience seeing the people of Shillong and the other states coming together for one cause i.e 'FASHION'.  I saw a lot of fashionistas and famous  designer like Rohit Bahl.  He was dressed to perfection as usual :).

The show started with Urvashi Kaur's collection followed by Anand Bhushan, Rapbor, Elizabeth Marbaniang, Amoii, Gaurav and Ritika and finally Nachiket Barve's collection.  I missed the later two shows since the show started 3 hours later than the scheduled time and I had a friend's birthday party to attend.  I will be writing down my review for the Shillong Fashion Week.

Urvashi Kaur : The fabric used were mostly tie dye fabric and the designs were asymmetrically drape with Harlem pants.

 Anand Bhushan - He was my favourite.  I really like the colour he used 'BOLD RED' and 'SUBTLE WHITE'.  He nailed it using different stitches like Chikankari, knot embroidery, feather, sequins on A-line, peplum and pleated dress and also on shrugs and shirts.  In every piece of his collection I found an Indian touch with all the works mentioned above.  I would personally love to own each one of them :)

RapBor- Honestly speaking as I'm giving my personal review there was nothing much that caught my eye to like any of the outfits.  All the dresses were black in colour and more or less A-line shape.

Elizabeth Marbaniang - Since I didn't attend the first show, Elizabeth was the first designer to showcase the local traditional attire for Day 2.  I could feel the Shillong Vibe throughout her show.  Hats off to the choreographer Ivan Suting, the choreography was innovative and at the same time was traditional with two locals playing the flute and drum.  It was something unique to see her blend a simple 'Khasi' dress with Indian ethnicity.

Amoii - The collection was mostly based on floral patterns.  Personally I feel the belt could have been worn better.  Small details does make a huge difference.  Overall it was great and very entertaining.

And finally this was what we wore for the event :)

 P.S :More review about the technical side of the fashion week will be done by my friend 'Tse' -The Purple Pattissier so keep a look out for it.

Have a nice week and we would very much love to see your comments.  Hearing from you all always brings a smile to my face :)
