Aditya College of Design students explore Victoriana at Bombay Times Fashion Week
A group of students from the Aditya College of Design showcased their designs on the runway at Bombay Times Fashion Week at the weekend. The presentation was inspired by the Victorian era and the historical figure Charles Frederick Worth.
Students of the Aditya College of Design were given the theme ‘Renaissance of Gothic Haute Couture’ to create garments for the Mumbai showcase. Exploring Victorian tailoring and the gothic subculture led students to create a range of dramatic silhouettes including crinoline gowns for women and tailored suits for men. Celebrity Nandani Gupta walked as showstopper for the presentation wearing a dramatic black hooded robe which she removed to reveal a glittering black, structured gown.
“Long robes, or dresses, layered skirts, fishnets, gloves, and tightly laced corsets styled with silver oxidised jewellery rightly define Gothic Clothing,” announced Bombay Times Fashion Week on Facebook. “These all depict a very morbid, conspicuously dark, and mysterious sort of fashion aesthetic, involving the colour black at all times.”
Bombay Times Fashion Week ran at the St Regis in Mumbai as an initiative of the Times Group. The fashion week featured presentations from brands including Gulabo Jaipur, Salt Attire, and Madame as well as the International Institute of Fashion Design.
