Runway Report
 

"Strong, edgy and charismatic" was the thought that came into mind at Rajesh Pratap Singh SS18 during Amazon India Fashion Week. What the designer's doing each season is fine-tuning an aesthetic. The minimalist black, white and chrome garments — inspired by the Nexa palette — crafted from a combination of masculine and feminine fabrics, textures and bold accessories amplified that attitude.

 

The collection was architectural in form and the narrative played with contrast — black and white, hard and soft, sheer and opaque, hi-tech detailing and handloom, athleisure and formals were juxtaposed to make a statement. Structured shoulders, feminine dresses, athleisure pants and a graphic interplay of stripes, polka dots and prints — each look stood out, suggestive of a sellout collection, completed theatrically with handmade steel sneakers and edgy eyewear.

 

Judging by the spontaneous cheers and standing ovation as showstoppers FDCI President Sunil Sethi and Abhay Deol came out on to the catwalk — and the barrage of tweets throughout the showcase — there were plenty of guests eager to experiment with this tough, sexy look!
