Pankaj & Nidhi – Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week AW 2013
With veteran designers like Wendell Rodricks, David Abraham (of Abraham & Thakore duo) and Rahul Khanna (of Cue by Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna) cheering from the front row, the autumn/winter 2013 collection by the fashion designer duo Pankaj and Nidhi was titled ‘My Music Box’ and they interpreted the theme in terms of graphic motifs(piano keys, guitar/sitar strings etc), pop colours and by inducing rhythm(the design element) in the silhouettes in signature Pankaj and Nidhi laser cutwork and appliqué. The show featured a wide range of silhouettes – tapered skirts, below the knee length dresses, maxi-length and a couple of peplum dresses – all fitted at waist. The range also includes trench coats and dresses with lapel collars featuring intricate surface details in bright and pop hues of pink, blues and orange with black base.
