Continuing CFW 2015 with the fantabulous Studio 9696. Founded by Sandeep, Ekta and Kavita, this is a cuber cool brand. Here at Chennai Fashion Week, they showcased a gorgeous bridal line for both men & women. Its quirky yet traditional.
The collection very much reminded me of Runaway bride - with heavy embroidered lehengas, but also with canvas shoes and sunglasses, the brides were uber cool!!!
You have to see how cool this 'bride' is and just watch how the 'groom' swipes the lady off her feet!!!
The concept on their ramp was also fabulous with live music. With a karaoke playing in the background, songs in Tamil, English, Hindi, Malayalam were sung live by the playback singers Ramya Nsk & Vinaita Sivakumar. The showstopppers were Divya Darshini, Sanchita Shetty and Allu Sirish!!!
Up next is Kumaran Silks, which was one of the sponsors of CFW. Its known for its traditional silk sarees and here at CFW, a collection of semi-traditional sarees were showcased. Some bright colors, contemporary motifs etc.
More innovation were in the blouses. Some lacey ones, some jacket styled ones etc. No much variation in the saree draping techniques which I would have loved!! Jewellery were styled well, but time tested ways like necklace as maangtika etc. The show stopper was Ms.Chennai, former Ms.India Earth Rochelle!!!
