WIFW Autumn/Winter 2013: Day 3

Starting off on a low note, day three at WIFW Autumn/Winter concluded with three of the fashion industry’s most prominent designers – Abraham & Thakore, Rajesh Pratap Singh and Manish Malhotra.

Designer duo Abraham & Thakore gave us statement wet looks with hair that was pushed away from the face and then, in some cases, twisted over one shoulder. Not the kind of hairstyle any of us can pick up this season of course, but it worked wonders for his designs.

As for Rajesh Pratap Singh’s show, the runway was taken over by a delightful selection of hairstyle. Funk, funk and more funk. Top buns, bouffants, and updos… even gorgeous inserts of colours brightened the show up no end. In places, wool caps with earflaps were used as accessories. Let’s just say the collection was the most winter-appropriate one we’ve seen so far.

Manish Malhotra’s ‘Threads of Emotion’ Autumn/Winter 2013 show was (of course) a wonderful display of colour and handiwork. Not to forget, the Bollywood constituent that is a given for any of his runway collections. This time it was Esha Gupta, Jacqueline Fernandes and Siddharth Malhotra who took centre stage for B-town’s favourite designer.

With their hair styled right down to the last detail, Esha Gupta and Jacqueline Fernandes walked the ramp in long braids that cascaded down their backs, with gold ornamentations woven into them. One with a French braid and the other with an intricate-looking twisted top, the two carried their show-stopping styles with some serious panache.

So the glamour-filled day 3 has left us wanting more, and day 4 of WIFW is showing promise with Shivan & Narresh and Vogue Fashion Fund’s Aneeth Arora taking the stage, amongst others. Stay tuned!
