One of Kolkata's oldest lifestyle exhibitions, Nouveaau, is a biannual shopping experience that brings nationally celebrated designers under one roof. When Nouveaau started, there was a dearth of options in occassiom wear and the primary idea of this popup was to not just focus on bridal wear but lifestyle as a whole. This edition on 23rd July, Nouveaau has stepped up their game and widened their array of variety in the genre of designers. But this time the approach is contemporary since some are still shopping for summer and some have started preparing for the smaller festivities or close weddings. We already posted a photo series last week with 5 bloggers and models who know how to shop and can teach others too. Out of popular demand to see more looks we are posting some more of our favourite looks available at Nouveaau's new chapter.
AARTI VIJAY GUPTA
This Fashion Week's popular designer inpires to bring the earth and sky together. Her designs are as soothing as shades of sky and the patterns are earthy and strong. A surreal artist, Aarti chooses fabrics that are comfortable, rich and supports the freedom of her design vision.
KLITCHE BY ISHA KEDIA
After a long time when I put on a dress it was perfect to the 'T'. I was amazed at the fine tailoring this designer has managed. Who says in Kolkata the designers can't do party dresses. A sleeveless charcoal silver ankle-length dress with a geometric pattern crop jacket made for an evening to remember. Even other dresses, the short knee length ones or more summery ones are really well-made clothes.
We decided to showcase two looks from Amrich because first, we are very excited to have him in Kolkatata even if it's just for a day. And second, we really wanted to express our appreciation for the happy vibes his collection always has. It's mainly because his clothes are an ideal vacation wear and holidays resonate with a happy feeling. We love the prints and the supreme quality of fabrics that enrich the prints to 10 folds. The one above is a casual smart asymmetrical kurta, layered in between with a playful flare at the bottom, exaggerated on one side with lounge pyjama pants. The one below is a long summer dress ideally falling till your calf. A play with layer and flare is seen again which makes it dressy even in a casual tone.
Her kurtas and scarves have powerful cuts with pops of colour to break the serenity. An easy and adaptive structure but structure no less and the subtle addition of tassels make it quirky. Take quirk to work with this designer.
