After wrapping up a successful day two of the fashion week, the designers are now gearing up for day three. Read on to learn more about what each designer will be presenting. 

Aseem Kapoor, Son of a noble SNOB, Anurag Gupta
Opening the day will be Aseem Kapoor, Son of a noble SNOB and Anurag Gupta. Aseem Kapoor’s collection titled ‘Beyond Ken’ is inspired by the state of mind that embraces the beauty in life's messy and unpredictable nature. It's about exploring the human psyche and embracing the delicious ambiguity that comes with it. 

The phrase "delicious ambiguity" reflects the idea that there is something thrilling and fulfilling about not knowing what is going to happen next. Through this collection, the brand expresses the idea of controlled chaos, poetic balance and the beauty that comes from combining irony.

SNOB’s ‘Sadak Chap’ is inspired by the Indian street style, and reinterprets the Indian gully vibe. With its sophisticated twist and modern sensibility, the collection embodies a hip and sporty aesthetic while maintaining a distinct visual language that is true to the brand’s identity. 

Next, Anurag Gupta’s collection ‘Failed Promises’ exclaims the condition of manual scavengers in India, which is deeply concerning. Manual scavenging refers to the practice of manually cleaning human waste, predominantly performed by marginalised communities.

Despite legislation banning it, the practice persists, with workers facing hazardous conditions, health risks and social stigma. Tragically, accidents and deaths among manual scavengers are frequent due to a lack of safety measures and inadequate infrastructure. Raising awareness and showing solidarity is crucial to addressing this issue. 

Following this, Kalki will present ‘Zayra’. It is a dazzling spectacle. The brand’s vision for this collection transcends boundaries; it's an opulent journey where dreams are sewn into reality. In every detail, from the meticulous craftsmanship to the exquisite designs, designers have woven together a tale of sheer luxury and sophistication. The collection aims to make all those wearing a Kalki feel like a star.  

Next, Guapa’s collection is a  visual ode to the enchanting and unexpected contrasts of the desert oasis; earthy tones with contrasting bright hues, fluid hand-draped silhouettes paired with impeccably tailored pieces that channel your inner dessert queen. Sustainability is at the core of the designs. From extensively using biodegradable fabrics to reducing waste and up-cycling; the brand’s aim is to design stunning eco-conscious clothing.
Pallavi Mohan
Pallavi Mohan’s ‘Not So Serious’ is a true testament to her resilience and strength. Her creations are a tantalising mix of sheer playfulness, peek-a-boo textures, on luxurious fabrics. Mohan’s style philosophy is as straightforward as it is impactful. 

Pankaj and Nidhi
Followed by this will be Pankaj and Nidhi presenting their collection, a filtered monochromatic vision in a palette of black and ivory with accents of muted gold. Each special and limited edition piece is unique, crafted with precision and designed to evoke a fascination for antiquity.

Gauri and Nainika
Taking the stage after Pankaj and Nidhi will be Gauri and Nainika to present their Spring Summer 2024 collection with a delightful blend of timeless glamour and contemporary style. Adding to the allure of the runway, the models will be carrying handbags by Caprese. Drawing inspiration from the enchanting world of vintage seed packet prints from the 1920s, their collection pays homage to their enduring love for bold florals, seamlessly merging them with classic motifs of French Toile du Jouy. 

Shivan and Narresh
The audience will then get a glimpse of Suomi culture from Finland through five iconic prints by Shivan and Narresh. Each of these prints encapsulates the very soul of Finland, drawing from its natural beauty and surroundings including the unique topography of the land, the mesmerising northern lights, and the cultural significance of the Finnish sauna tradition. Offering a diverse range of silhouettes - from shackets to knitted co-ord sets and jumpers to lurex maxi dresses, skirts, and trousers, this ready-to-wear collection caters to varying tastes and preferences for both men and women. 

Amit Aggarwal
The day will end with Amit Aggarwal presenting his collection titled ‘Core.’ The collection encourages the designer’s customers to express their true selves by incorporating new outfits with their existing wardrobe. It offers easy-to-wear, effortlessly stylish pieces made from silk, cotton, and rubberised textiles. Aggarwal’s collection includes roomy blouses, long shirts that look like kaftans, trousers and dresses.
