Nepal fashion week ends on creativity and futuristic designs
Nepal faishon week ends on fusion notes and futuristic designs. Kathmandu, Nepal. 16/09/2010
Every good thing comes to an end and in the presence of crème de la crème of the Valley, Nepal Fashion Week ‘10 models took their last walk on the runway on the breezy evening of September 16. The glamour knew no bounds and creativity and innovation of designers took to stage in the form of clothes that mesmerised many.
The limelight was equally shared by both western and ethnic wear on the grand finale. In western collections solid colours in both pastel and bright hues with feminine cuts were seen in the Chameleon Effect.
Black and white took to different forms in fabrics in the Blanco El Noir in skirts with geometric lines, bandage dress and shirts with frills on the neckline. On the last day, the audience also saw first collection which had designs for both him and her in Delightful Eve. Using contrast colours — mostly warm shades — for the tops and bottom, the collection had tops with toga-style neck, space designs and tulip style dress in metallic colour.
Denim again wowed the fashion enthusiasts in the Casual Friday theme. Short skirts, off shoulder and corset dress with pleated and ruffled lower half were executed with finesse.
More than one collection had long flowing gowns with some embroidery and sequin work either on the neck lines or waist.
Lehengas and saris full of glittering embroideries and in contrast colours were in dominance in the ethnic wear. A total of 12 sequences were presented on the last day.
Red, white and black with a hint of gold in more of experimental and theatrical attires were the signature style of designer Aneela Haque from Bangladesh. Huge jackets with asymmetrical cuts, dhoti style pajamas clubbed with shirts with Chinese-style neck were worn by both the male and female models. Calligraphy in different parts of the garment — at times just a print on sleeves and back or at times all over the garment — was an interesting addition to the garment.
The highlight of the evening were the exquisite and dazzling jewelleries by Diva that showcased two collections. Clasp bracelets, huge cocktail rings, pendants and elaborate neckpieces stole the show. Diamond and other precious stones like emerald, pearl and ruby sparkled the evening away.
Beauties ruled the ramp as the showstoppers of the evening included Miss India World 2009 Pooja Chopra, Miss Nepal 2010 first runner-up Sahana Vajracharya, Miss Nepal 2010 second runner-up Samyukta Timilsina, Miss Nepal 2002 Malvika Subba, Nepali model from UK Shirsty Shrestha and Wushu player-cum-Miss Tamang 2010 Sami Tamang. Singer Shirish Khadka from Shadows also walked to ramp as a showstopper.
