Hello lovelies !!!l
As most of you know i was invited for the Madras Couture fashion week-season 3 a few days back thanks to me bombarding FB and Instagram for a while.For those of you who are not aware of MCFW, This is nothing but a fashion week which spans out for 3 days showcasing upcoming designers debuting their collection. This time MCFW hosted close to 12 designers and each show was truly spectacular. The event was hosted by Grand by GRT and concept and PR was handled by Jupiter events. The title sponsors were Naturals, Powered by VOX group and Associate sponsors were Classic kitchen and so many more.
This was my first fashion week and i was proud to be part of the finest of ‘Madras Couture’ supporting ‘namma Chennai’ in every way.
The minute i got the passes i was like a 2 year old bouncing off the walls screaming ‘eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee’ .
Instead of thinking how to interpret and report the trends, All i could think was OMG, What am i going to wear ?????
After a lot of digging and trying on multiple options, basically my closet on the floor, Finally i decided on the below outfit.
Dress & Shoes : M&S
Clutch : Calogne
Accessories : Gifted
On day 1 I had attended 4 shows and each show blew me away in its own right and was truly spectacular. The element of drama and the show stoppers left us all wanting for more. Here are my thoughts and interpretation of trends of each of the shows
Day1 shows :
1. Shree’s ethnic trends and bridal lounge by Poornima Bhagyaraj and Vijii shriram – This collection is for a group of women who like to stand out.
Bridal wear reinvented and right on trend, Loved the cape over saree and dhoti saree styles.Each garment was draped to perfection and the drama was unbelievable.They specialize in Saree blouses and each blouse tailored was a unique piece of art. Reflecting on all the shows, This was probably one of my favorites.Kiki, Bhagyaraj’s daughter in law was a stunning show stopper. The entire Bhagyaraj family made it to the stage and it was a lovely feel good moment.
Few snippets from the show :
2. Tamara by TRB – This was a spectacular show and always put a smile thinking of the show.This Indian designer who is from Malaysia has already setup her brand AMBERE in Kuala lumpur and she is debuting Tamara by TRB- Collection in MCFW3. The collection has gorgeous dresses long and short adding a touch of glamour and capes were ruling the runway. Loved the pops of colors used and the garment draped in unique silhouettes throughout the collection.The element of surprise wasthe tiny tots taking the runaway and the lovely designer made us see how well she styles every age and each model had a matching outfit with a little girl, which made me go ‘awwwwww’. This collection is worth checkimg out and sakshi agarwal made a stunning show stopper.
The fun surprise offered by the GRT group of hotels was the staff taking on the ramp and showcasing the in house restaurant Jai Hind and the launch of the new bar, Steam and whistles, This bar theme is inspired from the great Gatsby era.
There was a flash mob performed by the staff as well which added a fun touch to the evening.
3. Piranha sports brand – This is a passionate and stylish sportswear and active wear brand which makes every gym bunny stylish.
They added so much fun pop of color to their work out wear am sure it will motivate anyone to hit the gym ! Loved the way the models made the brand seem so much fun by dancing their way across the ramp Piranha is the brand to check out for fun colored and simple silhouette workout wear to spice up every workout routine.
