A colourful affair at Chivas Fashion Tour

Mumbai: It was an evening of high fashion at Day 2 of the Chivas Fashion Tour in Mumbai. And it was thankfully a more colourful affair than the opening night.

Acclaimed designers Narendra Kumar and Wendell Rodricks showcased their work amidst much applause.

"My collection is just for the celebrity, essentially cocktail dresses,” said designer, Narendra Kumar.

“The theme is lounge lizard,” added designer, Wendell Rodricks.

Not surprisingly, the event attracted a galaxy of celebrities including former Miss World Diana Hayden, actress Amrita Arora, model-actor Rahul Dev, designer Aki Narula, actress Simone Singh, and everybody’s favourite party person, filmmaker Karan Johar.

Asked to pick his favourite designer of the evening, the diplomatic director gave a diplomatic answer.

“My favourite is not present at this event. I have to zero down,” said Johar.

The following evening, Day Three of the Chivas Fashion Tour, was a tribute to black among other things.

Designer Raghavendra Rathore showed off his black-and-white nocturnal collection on the ramp, while duo Shantanu-Nihil chose to experiment with 'kajal' in their collection, and made a splash with musicians Amaan and Ayaan Ali Bangash modeling their designs.

"The collection was purely inspired by the nocturnal evening habits,” said designer, Raghavendra Rathore.

“We are just trying to explore black,” added designer duo, Shantanu-Nikhil.
