Shillong, Oct 21: The grand finale of the first edition of Shillong Fashion Week(SFW) held here Saturday was an amalgamation of style, glamour and sensuality with plethora of colours, motifs and cuts sashayed on ramp.
The finale was shared by two designers — Gaurav and Ritika – known for presenting women in sensual yet sophisticated manner and Mumbai-based designer Nachiket, whose pieces easily attract women of all age-group.
“The collection shown at SFW showcases my journey in the fashion world till now as I have completed five years in the industry,” said Nachiket, who showcased key pieces depicting his close association with techniques ranging from cutwork, applique, texturising, embroidery, beading, shibori resist and origami dyeing.
Dresses, skirts, jackets, saris and trousers heavily dominated his line. Nachiket received applause for some of his pieces that according to the guests were “artworks of its kind”.
Gaurav and Ritika’s design, on the other hand, had a Victorian feel with lot of dresses and free flowing gowns highlighting women’s curves.
“SFW has been a great experience and hope and it was great showcasing our designs here,” said Gaurav.
Like any other grand finale, this show also had its share of creativity with a northeast-based Opera singer performing in tribute of his father’s demise recently.
The simple ramp set up could be considered as biggest turn-out something for the finale shows.
If we talk about glitches, the delay of show-timings at the start of the day affected the finale also with every show running approximately three hour late. This resulted in less audience – most of them localities of northeast.
In all it was a nice show to end the first edition of SFW.
