New Delhi [India], Mar. 19 (ANI): 'NEXA Lifestyle,' on the final day of the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 2017, turned into an event that celebrated the presence of a cluster of stars- from Richa Chadda to Sangram Singh. The Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) presented NEXA Lifestyle Collection onday four of the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 2017, in association with Maybelline New York. The NEXA show, themed on monochrome featured DhruvVaish, Kommal & Ratul Sood, Nought One by Abhishek, Pawan Sachdeva, Rohit Kamra and Sahil Aneja, who showcased their collections at the event held in the national capital on March 18. While Sangram Singh turned showstopper for Dhruv Vaish, Dino Morea dazzled the ramp for Sahil Aneja. Pawan Sachdeva had the very handsome Angad Bedi and gorgeous Nora Fatehi gracing the ramp in his clothing. Prateik Babbar made the audience go gaga over his innocent smile as he walked the ramp for Kommal and Ratul Sood. Abhishek Paatni and Rohit Kamra celebrated the girl power on the ramp with Anushka Manchanda and Richa Chadda respectively. The NEXA Lifestyle series is an attempt to include the burgeoning menswear market into the repertoire of mainstream fashion. As a part of the same, each designer interpreted the NEXA theme in his own unique way, incorporating the NEXA colours - black, white and chrome. Dhruv's collection 'Noire' explored the hue black in different forms, patterns, layers and textures along with the highlights of white and chrome. Style gurus Kommal & Ratul Sood identified the architectural skyline, of an urban city in their collection, 'Skylight'. While Abhishek's 'Mayday' was inspired by the tactical uniform of the army's black-ops team which carry out missions under extreme conditions. Interestingly, Rohit Kamra conceptualized the 'yin and yang', creating a fusion of black and white with his signature silhouettes. Pawan developed fabrics especially for the show, which captured the NEXA moodboard with his collection 'TREG'- classic clothing with a fresh feel. To give the show a classic end, Sahil's artistic ensembles titled 'Restricted', theorized for a man who is ready to step out his comfort zone into a edgier space, took the center stage. On this note, Sunil Sethi, president at FDCI said, "As menswear now dominates the apparel industry and is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.5 percent over the next five years to reach Rs 131,000 crores by 2017, according to a study, this is time appropriate. Therefore, the NEXA show is quite relevant and looked at design through the lens of both functionality and inventive thinking." (ANI)
