Mademoiselle by Tejas Gandhi

I have been waiting to blog about Tejas Gandhi and his collection displayed at Signature Premier Fashion Week Kolkata since the time I saw it. Flowy gowns, smart cuts, nets and a perfect blend of Indian textiles with western silhouettes is what set him apart from the other participating designers.

His show at the Kolkata Fashion Week consisted of 32 dresses using 1000 metres of fabric. The dresses were mostly inspired by French styles and involved heavy use of net. One interesting factor to be noted about the use of net here is that the cuts were intended to give it a lace like finish without using actual lace. He has also used some really tactful ways to add the required shimmer to some of his outfits without resorting to the usual stones as he clearly claims not to be a fan of those dazzlers however pretty they may be.

Based in Kolkata, Gandhi did his fashion & textile designing course from Bhawanipur Eduction Society College. He has worked for quite a few television production companies and channels before starting up his own label. In short, refreshing, unconventional, creative designs strongly focused on bringing out the audacious and yet elegantly feminine side of women is what the designer had aimed at and I must mention being a women I was floored by his line of work.

Kirti Rathore at Fashion Week Kolkata

Go bold and make your own statement. Who hasn’t heard that before? But doing it for real is something different altogether. A few years back, imagining your boyfriend in pink, yellow or orange would have been a social “ouch!” but thanks to designers like Kirti Rathore men can expand their colour spheres beyond the conventional blue and grey.

Her collections, mostly inspired from the royal attires worn by Rajputs had a modern edge combined with audacious use of bold and vibrant colours. The big question mark looming above my head regarding their wearability was tossed to the ground as soon as my eyes met the long line of dashing men carrying off colours with confidence. So hats off to her for thinking out of the box but make sure you are confident enough to pull off the look before you walk out in them.

Mostly based on the age old Jodhpuri Achkans but shorterher creations feature high-cut armholes and Mandarin collars. Among all the designers participating in the Signature Premium Fashion Week Kolkata she was probably the only designer with a male only designer. This is not strange at all, considering that she is actually a male apparel designer.

Earlier this year she presented at the Rajasthan Fashion Week too, and we could see a few repetitions in the line-up. But still her collection was a pleasure to see.

Next Gen by Soham Chakraborty

It is true that a fashion show needs style that appeals to the masses in the midst of all the creativity and glamour. Next Gen focuses entirely on the outfits for the upcoming generation and designer Soham Chakraborty had made that point very clear judging by the outfits presented by him in Signature Premier Fashion Week Kolkata.

garbs were wearable no doubt, but to be perfectly honest I did not find anything catchy about it. Most of them had the same patch work attached to different parts of the garment. The colours were the same, material variety even if present wasn’t very prominent and the designs were repetitive. To sum it up, I would have been impressed by his designs at some other fashion show but it paled into insignificance when it came to maintaining the standards of Kolkata Fashion Week 2012.
