A power packed beginning by fresh new talent, its easily one of the most anticipated shows – The GenNext Show. There was a variety of personalities on the runway, from classic to edgy to avant garde, a refreshing mix of fashion. The stand out for me had to be Shivaji Dutta his label is called Blank Spot. I loved his manipulation of leather and the strong use of deconstruction in the collection. The colours were earthy, with dusky browns and light tans. There were a lot of really well made and well thought of collections. Although a collection I’m sure young MissMalini readers will love is Miriam Strehlau whose label reflects the hippy and trippy life in Goa. It was a fun collection filled with pop neon colours and interesting Indian prints. I like the use of Ikkat that was seen in jackets, a great piece to have for any electronic party coming up.
