Day 1 at Wills India Fashion Week
Raakesh Agarvwal makes a remarkable foray in his creations using crystals, diamantÃ© and tactfully uses sophisticated hand-sewn embellishments. The provocative AW ’14 effortlessly electrifies his infatuation with the bling, making it sexy & super desirous.Inspired by S&M, pop stars and with the studio 54 eras thrown in, it is the epitome of sexiness, glamour and red carpet all with a lot of edginess.
Leather marries bling to create an inimitable collection of jackets, dresses, body suits and gowns with stark colors and stealth craftsmanship. The patterns reflect wilderness, the golden broken erratic chains Seduce not Control. The shapes flow from structured to seamless and the collection slides into the realm of complete seduction. Agarvwal’s mastery on accessories – Spike high boots, Thigh high boots, chain mail and bold neck braces confirm their own evolving journey of him as a master artist. Admittedly the most loved Enfant Terrible of the Indian fashion industry.
