‘Curves are sexy’

If you are not the one, you would have definitely have a friend who’s always cribbing about her curves! In contrast, there are others who are absolutely in awe of their voluptuous figures. Designer duo Shivan & Narresh bats for the women who fall into the latter category. The swimwear stars presented their collection Diego at the opening day of the Amazon India Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2016 and suggested that Indian women should embrace their curves instead of being embarrassed. “We are born with it. Curves are so sexy,” said Narresh post his offsite show at The Imperial Hotel. Their clothes were inspired by the artworks of Mexican artist Diego Rivera. Three major techniques, needle fringing, ruching and scalloping, dominated the cruise gowns, saris, bikinis and other dresses.

PS: The only unimpressive part of their artificial beach that they had created was unwanted guests — moths and flies. It gave the audience tough time!

Other designer such Vineet Bahl and Kavita Bhartia also presented their collections on the opening day. Both the designers were inspired by florals. Bhartia kept the colour pallette ‘subtle and quiet’ to cater to her international clientele. Raw Mango’s Sanjay Garg opened the fiesta with a collection in Mashru textile. The fabric was developed in the 16th century by weaving silk with cotton. It is traditionally worn by Muslim men.
