Oh the pressure! The opening and closing shows for Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week are usually the most anticipated and highest profile.  This year, the grand finale honour was granted to designer Namrata Joshipura whose signature silhouettes include red carpet gowns as well as barely there bodysuits.

The grand finale was entitled ‘elecTRON’ and the scene was set for the future with green laser beams followed shortly by a Daft Pink-esque Daft Alien dance intro the models stomped out full of attitude.  ‘The cyber punk girl and her tribe have moved to the next evolutionary stage, distilled down to a collection of data points’. My guess is that we will have to wait until we are in the future to decipher that statement.

Nevertheless, the collection was fab.  I love when Indian designers experiment away from traditional inspiration.  I loved the exaggerated leather and hair mohican head dresses, you’d be crazy to wear one really but this show was about indulging crazy impulses so what the heck?!

Leather paillettes, quilted fabrics, custome weaves, perforated leather and metallic all came together to give the futuristic vibe.  The namrata Joshipura customer will I’m sure be delighted to learn she can buy it this Winter as opposed to the year 3,000 or something!
