Bangalore Fashion Week Day 3 brought a plethora of beautiful collections

The young and vibrant designer Shloka Sudhakar showcased her collection for the opening show on DAY 3 of Blenders Pride Bangalore Fashion Week 2014. The collection is a plethora of beautifully constructed sarees, anarkalis, lehengas and cocktail dresses.  The use of gutsy colours and combinations besides the use of the finest fabrics took the leading role. The fabulous show ended with a shout out to all the women: WEAR YOUNG. FEEL YOUNG. STAY YOUNG.

ANIYA by Taniya Sagwan is a reflection of the experiences in the design industry. A couture label with a range carefully constructed and pieced ensembles. Taniya Sagwan’s work has been adorned on the red carpets of the OSCAR AWARDS and has also been a constant showcase in the Paris and Milan fashion weeks. 

Bangalore’s favourite designer Ramesh Dembla showcased his collection SOUL SHINE with a Yakshagana (Karnataka folk dance) performance.  The collection is an inspiration from all things that makes the designer happy. Like the colour red and the passion, the mystery and suprise of black and the glamour and opulence with gold/silver. The definition of ornamentation was redefined with an interesting use of sequins and beads. It was a play of contours as tassels and drapes in striking reds and floor length dresses took centerstage. The menswear line is for who's just as dapper, who has a sense of style and created a niche for himself. Chic jackets made of a combination of printed wool and velvets exuded elegance. Fukrey fame Vishaka Singh walked the ramp for Ramesh Dembla in a black and red lehenga which truly a personification of beauty on earth.

Kolkata designer Abhishek Dutta is already a glittering star on Kolkata's fashion firmament.  The designer’s distinctive style is the fusion of ancient embroidery with futuristic cuts. This season the collection showcased his mastery over detailing.  His love for handloom and natural fabrics personifies an unmistakable combination of bohemian freedom with subtle sensitivity.

The highlight was Sandalwood star Pooja Gandhi walking the ramp for Abhisek Dutta supporting the talented designer.
