Chennai Fashion Week 2015 - Indrajith & Studio 149



Chennai Fashion Week began and ended very well and here are some of my favourites. Starting with Indrajith from Srilanka. The fabrics he uses are handloom silk fabrics. The colors were a mix of neutrals and jewel tones. The cuts were simple and perfect pret.
I love his silhouettes. Its all very simple and elegant. The colors are a gorgeous mix of neutrals and highlights. The shapes are a beautiful combination of fitted and flared that flatters the wearers body! 
Sarees, salwars, gowns, flowy skirts, fitted tops, fit & flare dresses, crop tops - the variety was perfect. As a collection Indrajith has nailed the gradual variation and movement of colors. The subtle sheen of silk was the cherry topping!!!
Check out the video. A deep, vibrating, soulful tribal drums as the background music was perfect for the show! 
Next is Studio 149 by Swathi, an upcoming label in Chennai. Inspired by Autumn season, its falling leaves, the collection is colored with browns, rust, bronze, deep yellows, oranges and reds. Several textile techniques, including embroidery, tie dyeing, ruffles, etc were used.
The fabrics were also colored with tie dyed techniques including ombre dyeing and crumple dyeing! The silhouettes were not too complicated, but were not too minimalist either. They had a hint of shimmer. Some were completely shimmery! Some garments had an embroidery that had a dimension to it. 
The ever so spectacular, super gorgeous, splendid, uber magnanimous former Ms.India Parvathy Omanakuttan was the showstopper for the show. She was wearing a flared gown made of yellow & red tie dyed fabric with subtle antique gold embroidery. The designer Swati herself was also wearing sheath, maxi dress made of the traditional bandhej textile.
