Day 1- Bora Aksu @ 6.00pm

Bora Aksu's S10 collection, inspired by Oscar Wile's ‘The Happy Prince’, alludes to the beauty that lies within us all. Shades of pink, salmon and yellow were juxtaposed with darker shades of black giving an edgier feel to the collection. By the middle of the collection, tufts of gold, lace and chiffon were made to peek under layers of black and pattern, adding extra depth and volume. Interesting additions to the pieces were the knitted lacy bibs overlaid on top of dark dresses.

Overall, the collection saw a set of strong women in long side-braids and messy hair trampezing down the catwalk in a mesh of chiffons and knits. The tights were the showstoppers of the series in rays of glitter and splashes of pink, white, and black. Bora Aksu truly embraced the dark romantic grunge look.
