PIA PAURO | AKAARO Press note :  Transpired into aesthetics at the exotic beaches of Zanzibar and inspired by Pia’s travel through Tanzania and her time spent with the Masai’s at their village. ‘Zanzibar’ is a reflection of the vast african landscapes, the wildlife and the people of Africa. The collection has fabrics like crepe, sil georgette and cottons with the perfect match of ease and luxe to it. SHIVAN & NARRESH | FONTANA Press note :  The soft brutality of slashed & stabbed canvases of Lucio Fontana expose an artistic dimension often remembered – the Negative. Embodying the spatial canvases in monochromes coupled with lemon tints in brazen resortwear, the ensembles emphasize the subtle seduction of the skin. The swimwear returns this season, bolder, with lacerated signature maillots, bikinis & trikinis.  Check out the entire ‘Picture Diary‘ for Wills India Fashion Week SS’14.

Design encompasses everything around us. Fashion, Space, Photography & Graphics are just a few fields that experiment with the elements of design to create and express. Certain designers have played significant roles in defining their creative field with their signature style.  Just like the design world, the food industry has also evolved in terms of the visual appeal of a plated dish, which can be seen through food trends over time. The interesting part here is the combination and balance of texture, color, form and proportion used while plating a dish. The use of these elements of design are quite similar to those seen on the runway, a photograph, a space or any design oriented field. Food designers such as, Marije Vogelzang, Elsa Lambinet and Julia Rothhahn, have worked toward creating new concepts, experimenting with technique, exploring produce and inventing flavors in order to create something spectacular on the plate.  Food and design capture the timeless essence of all things beautiful! ‘Deconstruct’ is the innovative concept that translates the flavors of signature styles of eminent designers and their iconic creations, into ingredients that work in harmony to create the perfect bite. It is a unification of style and taste.  Tossed in scrumptious inventiveness, on the 19th of July, Smoke House Deli launched this concept in association with the phenomenal Luxury Swimwear designers Shivan & Narresh. This designer duo, were the first to launch swimwear in the country and have showcased a number of innovative collections over the years. They have not only been pioneers within this segment, but have built a nationally renowned brand, whose popularity seems to grow as the days go by.   Anand Bhushan, Shivan Bhatia, Gautam Sinha and Narresh Kukreja Hosts Shivan Bhatia, Harmeet Bajaj and Narresh Kukreja  Nandini Bhalla Narresh Kukreja and Masaba Gupta Excerpts from …
