WIFW AW 13 Day4Saturday, April 13, 2013
Day 4 of WIFW had some fabulous shows put up but Anand Bhushan's collection definitely makes it to my top 5. His collection is inspired by blocks of life and how they build our memories. The color palette is monochromatic and he werqs black like never before. Checks and leather are constant. Its clean, defined and we love it! Pia Pauro on the other hand is a burst of colors. With her vibrant persian prints she takes us to Kazakhstan. Her collection Mountain Chic is textured playing with silks and needlework. The boots and head jewellery are beautiful to watch! Shivan and Narresh's Naive art collection is all about fluorescence, prints and feminine cuts. The swimwear and the abstract faced accessories are the highlight.

Dev r Nil showcase a collection inspired by the winter cold thus the color palette is limited to the basic colors with a hint of teal and olive. Fern leaves and rose motifs are brilliantly incorporated within the garments. Applique technique, cut work and japanese beading make these motifs come alive. Pero by Aneeth Arora is an absolute visual treat. Her circus themed collection is a riot of colors experimenting with different fabrics and techniques from all over the county. Magicians hat, cherry nose, bow ties, juggling bottles and balloons add the fun element to this carnival! Payal Pratap Singh's AW13 collection is Indo-Boho playing with floral prints. Her collection focuses on a purple and blue color palette and intricate detailing and thread work. The collection is romantic with a vintage feel to it.
