Chennai International Fashion Week 2015 - Chaitanya Rao

If you had seen my Facebook and Twitter updates, you might have known, Chennai got its heat up through the roof, with Chennai International Fashion Week that happened last week. This and upcoming few posts would be on the event!
When you say Chennai and Fashion together, there are a few names that are synonymous with it, and that list would be topped by, none other than Chaitanya Rao.
This time in the 7th Edition of Chennai International Fashion Week hosted by Storm Fashion Company, presented by Volvo Cars, Chaitanya Rao was actually in cloud 9 and why wouldn't he be, with the latest movie he designed costume for, became a super duper hit!!!!!
The collection started in his signature spring-summer feel with pastel multi-colored leather outfits in fitted silhouettes like fitted shirts, jackets, short skirts etc. Then it moved on to solids in watermelon reds, combined with elegant painted effect floral prints in reds, pinks & greens. 
From that, the collection moved over to something that I wanted to steal off the ramp. These are very similar to what he designed for the lead lady Nayantara, in the movie that became a super hit - Thani Oruvan. Gowns... Not just gowns, those were super flowy, super flared, super flouncy, floral printed GOWNS!!! I want them... I mean, seriously, I want them.... I just want them!!!!!!!
After that, came in the his darker, deeper side with more drama! This began with silver and white and moved to silver and black!!! The snake textured leathers were made into fitted silhouettes. More texture was added in the construction of the garment. This jacket with the back cutout, origami pleated detailing is again a piece that I want!
Black gowns followed this. Yes, the lighting on the ramp for this black series, was a bit miserable.
His wrap up was with the maximum drama that he could put in. Every girl wants a 'knight in shining armor', right? So, he chose to make the lives of the guys easy with this almost armor-like outfit. Silver studded detailing in a structured collar, power shoulders again studded with silver, black tee, silver pants, black cape - this is total drama!!!
Finally, who would be his show stopper? Obviously, the hero of the movie Thani Oruvan - Jayam Ravi. Dressed in a White shirt with standing collar and black collar stand, blazer with jacquard texture detailing on the lapel, he was dapper as usual!!!
I've always loved Chaitanya. His all-over mirror embroidered tee and bright summery lungi-s he designed for Vikram, and the super long saree that he draped Simran in, in Kannathil Muthamittal, are things of beauty that are joy forever. Chaitanya is one happy man to see the gap between film fashion and ramp fashion finally converging!!!
