RIDDHI SIDDHI MAPXENCARS
Runway Report
 

''This is our fifth season at India Beach Fashion Week'', Riddhi and Siddhi Mapxencar told me. ''It's all the more special because we are Goans by origins so going back home and showcasing our first ever prêt line in the presence of friends and family is so exciting!'' Aware of the intricate detailing which plays out the theme of all their collections, I was excited to witness this one—and sure enough the duo showcased an autumn in Japan with influences of origami on chiffon, georgette, satin and silk.

It was a play of fabric manipulation on fluid silhouettes, with drama in the form of ruffles, drapes and textures. Waists were nipped in and sculpted silhouettes drew attention to a small waist. I personally loved the off-shoulder blouse with ruffled shoulder! As the showing progressed, the duo dealt their vision of modern tailoring—sending out cowled dhoti pants, sculpted blouses and flare-cut dresses. This was MapxecaRS in a grown-up mode with designs exuding a new precision and polish.

 

Overall, a collection with the distinction of strong, innovative design on a level of maturity which had guests craning forward, engaged and curious from first look to closing. I have no doubt in my mind this would be a sell-out! ''We always focus on a smart mix of commercial appeal and and creativity. One cannot make a piece of art with nobody wanting to wear it'' they grinned as everyone clamoured to appreciate it.
