VIRTUES
Runway Report
 

Virtues by Ashish, Viral and Vikrant channeled a strong heartfelt message: equal rights for people who unfortunately live with the shadow of HIV lying heavily over their soul. And now, the trio mused, maybe the time has come around to revisit the missing spirit of upliftment.

Touching a chord within each of us, the showing began with Mitali in an ivory robe embellished with zardozi and worn over fluid pants—accessorised with red pumps. She stood proud and singular as a visual reference of the theme. The haunting soundtrack of 'Ekla Cholo Re' by Rabindranath Tagore took over to which girls walked sombrely down the catwalk. I couldn't help thinking the trio understand the power of display—an understatement in the light of the collections they have showcased in the past.

There was still the compendium of remarkable techniques, notably the asymmetric halter dress embellished with zardozi and feather stitching and the empire layered tunic embellished with aari and sashimi work. Athleticism underlined a quilted pleated Jodhpuri jacket encrusted with zardozi and worn over harem pants while another winner was the front-open gown with chord work that closed the showing. Kudos to the trio for tailoring their SS15 collection to upp the faltering of HIV awareness.
