Sona Mohapatra adds drama to runway at AIFW SS'17

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Singer Sona Mohapatra, who turned a showstopper for the label Virtues by Viral, Ashish and Vikrant, added drama with her powerful act on the second day of the ongoing Amazon Fashion Week (AIFW) Spring-Summer 2017.

Mohapatra, who was seen sporting a bright orange layered pleated dress made of a fabric called Kotpad with natural dye, entered the stage dancing to the song "Tere ishq nachaya" sung by her. She even sung a few lines of the song "Aja ve" live for the audience.

The designers, whose collection was titled Mrs Nair's High Tea showcased a total of 23 ensembles, which included layered dresses, capes, Ikat woven frock dresses, pants and off shoulder gathered tops.

The entire collection was done by a traditional dyeing process called Aal, which is used in Odisha. The colour palette had soft hues like white, blue, reds and browns.

Talking about the collection, Mohapatra told reporters here: "I am proud to be here...It would be interesting to share with you also that the garment I am wearing took 16-20 days to dye. It's an all natural dye. The more you wear these garments, the colour starts getting darker and deeper, which is such a rare thing."

The highlight of the show was the use of shoes. Models were seen sashaying in their beautiful garments paired with Oxford brogues and knee length boots.

Talking about the cuts and techniques, Vikrant said: "The cuts are very basic. One can wear at various functions. Techniques used were more of pleating, quilting and a lot of handwork has been done."

The show was followed by Pinacle a brand by Shruti Sancheti. The designer's collection was titled Folklore. The collection had a bohemian vibe with a dash of feminine vintage mood. The range had hand woven textiles like fluid silk, woven cotton and sheer chanderi.

The collection saw a huge use of soft hues of white, apricot, caramel, orange, ocean blue and muted indigo in cuts such as maxi and midi dresses, pleated skirts, off shoulder blouses and dresses, wide legged pants and asymmetrical reversible jackets.

The five-day fashion gala, which commenced on Wednesday will conclude on Sunday.
