Top trend of this season was the highlight of the show as the key to it was in inner wear. In its way it was an ingenious idea of bringing inner wear, to the forefront of the woman’s wardrobe. Inherently Art, and all things French, this season, Quirk Box draws its inspirations from a French Art and Fashion era revisited.

Highly detailed and classic hand illustrations of Vintage Fashion Objects and Sewing Machines depicting French Couture, along with Cross Stitch as an Embroidered and Typographic Illustration forms the depth of our SS16 collection. This collection emphasises on the idea that ‘Art is the New Black’.

The glory of the art of marble inlays and marble cutting was explored in the ‘Sangamar-mar’ collection by Sahil Kochhar. The interpretation of the ‘Prachin Kari’ technique, a way of cutting and fitting polished, coloured stones in marble to create images, was presented in a very unique way. Fabrics were printed using textures of precious stones, cut into different shapes and then put together to form abstract floral motifs.

The surprise start to the show was done by a black shirt dress, which was embellished by fabric florets. The pitch perfect white palette was introduced with a jewel neck cutwork dress with puffed sleeves. Sahil Kochhar’s ‘Sangamar-mar’ was an alluring attempt at restoration of the ancient art of marble carving but translated into a collection that ensured a lasting impression.
