Shadowbox sheen

Debutante designer Shivani Awasty looked happy indeed as she launched her inaugural collection titled ‘Shadowbox’ at Aza, the stylish store in Bandra.
Based on the art form shadowboxes, what you saw were asymmetric strong shapes inspired by elements of origami and the silhouettes drawn from Victorian detailing. There was an innovative use of high-ruffled collars, tiered vintage pleating, cascading ruffles and variations of smoking all over to create visual shadows within the garments.
The preview party, hosted by Devangi Nishar, saw Aditi Rao Hydari and Evelyn Sharma don pieces from the designer’s chic collection. While Aditi was in a pearlescent shell pink construct gown, Evelyn sported an edgy look in a graceful grey English smock gown layered in contemporary elegance that created a theatrical flounce.
Others showing off Shivani’s creations included Farah Khan Ali, Zoa Morani, Pooja Bedi, Tara Sharma, Anmol Malik, Dayana Erappa, Candice Pinto and Deepti Gujral.
