The 15th edition of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WLIFW) Autumn-Winter 2010 got off to a flying start in New Delhi, showcasing the latest collections of India’s top fashion designers.
This fashion extravaganza featuring 43 shows will run till March 28. It will also witness the participation of 19 new designers.
The WLIFW-AW 2010, hosted by the Fashion Design Council of India, will witness the participation of 130 designers and 75 of them will also be presenting shows.
In Fashion Show, Designer Tarun Tahiliani steered away from his usual jewel tones and experimented with shades of navy, gray and cream. Teemed with gold, ruby and fuchsia embellishment, Tahiliani said he wanted to recreate Indian glamour in his latest collection. Tahiliani said that this time we have gone back to Indian craft, started working with very dull, muted colours as you can see. A very different color palette and I wanted everything to be very luxurious.
Meera Ali said that the collection named Greenhouse and depicts the times of today. A greenhouse is an artificial space where living things are grown. So the collection is a philosophy based on shapes and what is considered luxurious.
Using fabrics ranging from silk, chiffon and even feathers, Meera Ali said they were looking to challenge the notion of luxury in the world of high fashion.
Meera and Muzaffar Ali presented Kotwara, the collection named after one of Asia’s oldest Islamic dynasties.
