GAURI AND NAINIKA
Runway Report
 

Gauri and Nainika are technically adept, with exquisite taste in fabric and an intriguing set of references. Celebrated for evening gowns and cocktail dresses with appealing languor—there is not much wiggle room in silhouettes here— with fresh inspiration each season, the duo always create something new for loyal clientele. So the off-site showing at Amazon India Fashion Week was dramatic in theme and presentation as the sisters collaborated once again with artist Travis Black, this time to create illustrations of pansies, based on photographs.

 

Their feminine approach to construction resulted in softly sculpted silhouettes in stretch poly-crepe — striking in its simplicity. The cobalt and mustard striped dress with an oversized pansy; the red, black and white shift with pansies; and the purple square-neck sculpted dress with red pansies were the undisputed highlights—graceful and grown-up. Although I must admit my favourite looks was the teal off-shoulder mermaid gown with purple pansies! The execution was flawless and the red carpet looks' allure was sensuous. Once again, a hot-seller!!
