Day 2 of Chandigarh Times Fashion Week is a lot of stylish drama – Times of India

On day 2 of Nirwana Square One Presents IIFD Chandigarh Times Fashion Week Powered by Senco & Aliyana by Meena Bazaar, the ramp came alive with lot of glamour, sass and pizzazz as celebrities from the world of fashion and acting came together to celebrate maiden edition of CTFW.
The evening began with designers Clovia and Sidharath K Kakkar. Clovia was a sensuous show of sundowner bralettes, active and lounge wear for women. They showcased flattering colours of electric blue, reds, green, burgundy, black padded bralettes in lace and nets. “Our active wear is a line of prints that are tailor made for the Indian women’s physical attributes that make her comfortable in our active wear for gym, and are comfortable for lounging or for casual outings. We keep the detailing in mind by giving pockets and other essentials for women” said their VP of the brand. Walking the ramp for this feminine line was actress Sara Gurpal who is known to show off her sensuality in absolute comfort. She said, “It is not that easy to say wear a bralette and walk the ramp but I am very comfortable in it and it doesn’t feel like a inner wear or bra. It is more like a top and I can pair it with jeans, jackets of even a skirt. I am someone who believes that be confident in whatever you are wearing. I think the mindset about lingerie has changed since three to four years.”

Sidharath’s collection paid a fashionable tribute to manhood in the modern times. He said, “It is rightfully called Dark Treasures and is all about the current season-that of weddings. Everyone wants to dress up for weddings. Unless you dress up, all theories about weddings don’t make sense. My collection emphasis sharp silhouettes, embellishments and caters to Indian commercial markets. I have incorporated fusion elements that are not restricted to the Indian boundaries, they are global. Colours like blues, grey, black, add global part while the Indian touch is from happy hues of powder blue, lavender etc for the right mix for Indian and global audience.”
Walking for Sidharath as his showstopper was actor and friend from many years ago Paramvir Singh Cheema. Said Cheema, “Sidharath and I go back seven years. In his first show I auditioned for it in Jalandhar as a model before he he went into designing big time and I moved to Mumbai for acting. And now I am his showstopper. So, it has come back full circle between us. His collection is not western, or Indian or Indo-Western. It is just the right combination of elements for the modern man who wants to be dressy, yet not be confined to traditions. For instance, the tux I wore is paired with a sheer T-shirt.”
