SAMANT CHAUHAN
Runway Report
 

With the wedding season about to go down, it is tempting to extract references from Samant Chauhan's showing, which began on a promising note with a stunning chanderi jacket with zari and silk threadwork. Celebrated for his use of organic fabrics—the designer yet again stole the show with intricately embellished pleated jacket-style dresses, lehenga skirts worn with crop tops, kimono-style jackets and front-open evening gowns. It was one of the season's most charming showings—and more respectful of his heritage than anything he has designed till date. 

 

As one of the prominent figures in Indian fashion today, Chauhan is keen to keep Bhagalpur weaving techniques afloat while carving his own identity in global fashion. The collection had a spare sensibility—precise but sensual. Geometric silhouettes married organic fabrics folded, pleated and twisted to form surface ornamentation. I loved the chanderi kimono-style jacket paired with a mini skirt and the off-shoulder evening gown lavishly embellished with silk embroidery and zari. The verdict was unanimous: it was a chic, tightly edited collection with an of-the-moment minimalism that could make his new store a busier place next spring!
