Designer Ritesh Kumar presents his Spring/Summer 2014 Preview for WIFWSS 14

City’s glitterati and expats had a taste of true Italian Soiree with sumptuous Italian food and wine at the preview of designer Ritesh Kumar’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection at the prestigious Fiat Caffè by Kashyap Fiat in the midst of Fiat car models and accessories, where state of the art technology meets design; luxury meets innovation.

The talented designer who has been shortlisted for the India Vogue Fashion Fund (July 2013) and is also the winner of the Young Designer award by Grazia India (April 2013) will be unveiling the collection at a fashion show in October during the Wills Lifestyle India  Fashion Week.

Ritesh Kumar S/S ’14 collection titled Epiphany, is the final part of Paranoia trilogy launched in S/S ’13. The series speaks of freedom, restriction and the associate emotions which we go through while dealing with our vulnerable and impenetrable self. Juxtaposition of contradictory elements fuses the raw and the fragile, fluidity and severity for innovative expression in design. A conceptual ambience translates these emotions through intricate textures, sculptural volumes, play with transparency and light, forms and shapes rendered in monochromes.

The guests included Actor Nasir Abdullah, Designers Gaurav Jay Gupta, Divyam Metha, Pooja Kapoor, Shivali Misra Seth Socialites Swapnil Khullar Sharma, Federica Torgneur, Shaine, Diksha Sachdev Expats diplomats Jesus Clavero Rodriguez, Elisabetta Holsztejn, Alessia Bianchi, artist Francesca Ramello.
