Top 5 Collections from PSFW17 – Khaadi Khas
Here are FNTL’s favorite collection from PSFW17
The tenth PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week (PSFW17) officially commenced on 13th April 2017, also marking the eighth consistent year of the prêt a porter platform. As announced, PFDC introduced an evolved show concept and structure. Continuing with the structured approach to fashion showcases, PFDC team built on their commitment to 3 distinct platforms within PSFW17 – With separate and dedicated showcases for Luxury/Prêt designers, High-Street brands and Textile houses this year.
All three days of PSFW17 were somewhat of a fashion disappointment. Many collections seemed like a half-hearted attempt at high street fashion by designers who usually do well with bridal collections. Despite this, we still managed to pick a few collections that worked on many levels. These designers managed to score a home run with their collections – One of our top 5 picks is:
Khaadi Khaas showcased “The Nomad” collection at PSFW’s Luxury Prêt Grouped Show segment. The collection interpreted Central Asian rural crafts to modern aesthetics. “The Nomad” featured contemporized eastern silhouettes, voluminous straight cuts and large scale prints embellished with chains, studs and leather foil sheets. Intermix of pure fabrics such as silk, crepe and organza on a tribal color palette, constituted the entire collection.
Khaadi Khas hit it out of the park with this collection. Every single piece was outstanding and resonated with the theme of the collection. Each ensemble was well thought out and created a complete outfit. From the prints to the embellishments, everything worked for us! The earthy hues and tribal prints were a breathe of fresh air from preceding collections of PSFW17. Long jackets, tunics and waistcoats created a wearable, yet edgy range. The tribal jewelry, also by Khaadi, was a cherry on top to complete the looks.
