Shiny Disco Ball!

The international ramps witnessed a heavy influence of 80’s and early 90’s style statements. Fashion seers and crackerjacks like Gucci, Oscar de la Renta, Versace, Prabal Gurung, Marc Jacobs and the likes are the ones responsible for this fashion resurrection.

However, like a breath of fresh air, at the epicentre of this AW18′ is the 30-year-old designer Halpern! Known for his unapologetic fashion exaggerations, blatant elegance and excessive embellishments, he is a wave of shiny change! Promoting hyper-femininity by creating a concoction of trends, Halpern and other novice designers like him are breaking boundaries and redefining fashion norms.

Shimmer and shine – all the way!

From London to Milan, New York to Paris, the fall fashion week saw a seriously fun spin to sequins. Using it as loudly and proudly as one can, London Fashion Week’s star performer – Designer Ashish had this to say about sequins, “It’s always been a revolution for me. Sequins have always been a protest for me. A protest against blandness”. The rest of the fashion fraternity and influencers couldn’t agree more with the designer, who has always used explosive colours and massive sequins in all his collection.
