Nikhil Thampi is known for his experimental designs. His creations personify the modern women in a bold and at times eccentric way. Even when it comes to the desi ensembles, the cuts are very contemporary.
He has also brought a revolution of pantsuits but dressing the best of the B-town bunch in his sharp silhouettes. Tailoring and draping both are his strong suits, and it’s quite evident through his outfits.

2oth September: It’s always about the future when it comes to Nikhil Thampi and his showcase at Exhibit Fashion Tour. Also, the fact that it was for the first time he was exhibiting his menswear capsule collection.
In a true Nikhil Thampi style, the collection played along the colours that are black, white and beige. His signature style comes across through the unique silhouettes that were featured during the show. The sharp lines of the formal structures blended well with feminine details like billowy sleeves, thigh-high slits, capes and deep V-necklines. The girls walked down the runway wearing futuristic looking sunglasses. For his first dive in the menswear design, he played around with the lapel, boxy silhouettes, lengths and even added thine belts at the waistline.
As a showstopper, Hrithik Roshan made a smashing entry in an all-black ensemble. The long V lapel had a metallic pin detail that was present throughout his whole collection. To add to the swag, he had accessories like coloured sunglasses and headphones around his neck. Hrithik played it cool as a showstopper.
The collection showcased at Exhibit Fashion Tour truly represented Nikhil Thampi’s true signature style, not only in terms of design but also in terms of the conceptualisation of the lineup.
