Riyaz Gangji – Libas
This summer wedding collection by Riyas Gangji brings to Kochi bridal ensembles with voluminous lines and rich embroideries intricately woven over jewel toned bodies. For the men, the look ranges from western to indo-western with slim jackets and snazzy cuts. The designer has aimed to keep it subtle yet soothing. It captured the festive Indian wedding spirit, with the models breaking into a quick dance move while on the ramp. Fashion Choreographer Lovell Prabhu sure did bring some serious entertainment value to the platform.
Archana Kochhar for Copperstone – Bar Code
First of its kind men’s clothing line for summer resort 2012, inspired by the simple yet precise moves of stripes & checks in ebony & ivory, keeping the feel relaxed and casual. The cold blacks were paired with ethereal whites with a splash of neon.
Vivek Karunakaran – Tres Chic
Inspired by the global traveller, Tres Chi is Vivek Karunakaran’s interpretation of a new age grunge chic. Celebrating the ancient art of Kalamkari, and juxtaposing this with the uberchic fashion quotient of today, the collection unfolds a range of dramatically layered silhouettes. Trimmed with metallic zippers and metal sequins, garments are interestingly fragmented through layering and paneling. Vivek Karunakaran has indeed stayed true to his own unique style of tweaking the traditional and hence giving birth to what’s contemporary.

Pria Kataria Puri – Persian Punk
Inspired by the Persian culture, the nature and goodness of the Persian lifestyle, Pria Kataria Puri brings to the stage the quintessential “high voltage glam look”.
The colours this season were mostly paired with gold. Tangy orange kaftans clinched at the waist with gold sequined bands, lime-green robes taking the form of an abaya adorned by women of the Middle East, flowy dresses in leopard prints perfect for resort wear; were some of the looks that the designer has worked on. Dresses were all defined at the waist, with sunny summery colours taking the forefront. They spoke of the contemporary Arabian woman who wouldn’t think twice of strutting down the high-fashion street in a fiery red chiffon something, with a slit that rides high to her thighs, sending the spectator to a tease frenzy.
Parvathy Omanakuttan did the final walk for Pria Kataria Puri, in what looked like the designer’s vision for the future. Space aged and futuristic with power shoulders and a short hemline, the former Miss India World was nothing short of a stunner.
Prabhat Samasooriya – Frozen Waters
Taking off from the Tibetan plateau, Prabhat Samasooriya brings forward native craft style from Sri Lanka with colorful sarees deconstructed into dye work and robes held together with a rope band. Mixing an Asian flavor to International fashion, flowy drapes mostly in blues, yellows and indigo were teemed with cloth turbans wound over the models’ delicate heads.
The sleeves were mostly off-shoulders or halters incorporated in jersey and pure cotton dresses. Color blocking and fusion played a huge role along with a bit of stripes and polka dots. The highlight of the evening was the intricate detail splayed on the sarees there were, with its pallus chosen to be a part of the 6 yards with the help of buttons and knotted in shoestring laces. The Tibetan spirit was noticeable in the browns and reds that were present- one could almost imagine the Budhist monks in meditation that could have inspired the designer.
On the hair and makeup front, the lips were always nude and the two sided plait seemed to have made a comeback. The closing model was ex-Miss Sri Lanka, Kristina Pereira, who wore a distinctive blue, red and white saree in laces and polka dots.
