Arabian Nights' tales mystify penultimate day of WIFW
Oct '12
The second last day of the glitzy fashion soiree ‘Wills India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013’ relived the famous Persian saga of coincidences and self-fulfilling prophecies through designer Pratima Pandey’s collection named Arabian Days. The richly textured Chanderi and cotton ensembles celebrated the essence of natural fabrics and dyeing techniques as well as the brilliance of Indian craftsmanship.
The designer Rahul Singh’s show saw the talented dusky Indian film actress Tannishtha Chatterjee walking the ramp wearing a glamorous red and gold ensemble from the designer’s collection named ‘Shibori’. The apparel line highlighted the eponymous Japanese art of dyeing garments with a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting or compressing. The collection includes a range of resort wear in cool summery shades.
The NIFT graduate, Abhi Singh’s brightly coloured apparel range was inspired by colossal skyscrapers. It was an eclectic mix of innovative crafts and refined textures along with scattered facets of concrete on the clothes. 
Preeti Jhawer’s flowery easy-to-wear collection included ghagras, dresses and waist jackets in bright, sunny hues of yellow, pink and orange.
Kallol Datta presented an eye-catching range of bizarre outfits in colours like black, white and silver. The hypnotising collection included a variety of long dresses, tunics and pants.
Designer Aneet Arora’s label ‘Pero’ was inspired by the romanticism of the modern day women travellers. The line included vintage denim jackets, dresses, long white kurtas and striking blue-checkered lungis.
The Delhi-based designer sisters Gauri and Nainika presented a classy yet edgy collection that featured lean silhouettes. The ivory coloured ensembles were made of exotic fabrics like micro-crepe and organza, topped with bold ruffles, intricate textures and an occasional dash of black.
Designer Ranna Gill's show was sponsored by Fiama Di Wills, an Indian personal care brand. The collection titled ‘Exotica’ showcased a vivid array of maxis, kaftans, jersey dresses, tunics and skirts.
