The ABIL Pune Fashion Week continued to day two with designers Nitya Bajaj, Nivedita Saboo, Riddhi Siddhi, Mona Shroff, and Nachiket Barve. Each designer showcased clothing lines full of vibrant colors, detailed patterns, intricate beading, and figure flattering silhouettes. Various Indian actors and actresses showed their support for the designers by walking the runway. Loved all of the gold sewing detail mixed with bright reds, shimmery silvers, and rich, deep purples. One of my favorite ensembles was the red, beaded maxi skirt paired with a nude colored bandeau and silver and gold sleeveless vest. Each pieces was detailed, rich in color, and elegant. We saw several major trends including the top two colors of the fall-maroon and forest green. Each designer mixed traditional patterns, beading, and embroidery with contemporary silhouettes and colors. Jewelry designer Mona Shroff showed off more traditional pieces including chunky stoned collar necklaces, body chains, headpieces, and arm cuffs.
