The second day of the Signature Premiere Fashion Week Kolkata saw a melange of modish designs by Ankit Mehta, Pallavii Mahindraa, Soham Chakraborty, Kirti Rathore and Tejas Gandhi.

The evening was lured by footballers from leading Indian clubs who were the showstoppers for designer Agnimitra Paul as she brought the vanishing Madhubani art of Bihar on the runaway. Paul’s show had models draped in handloom, textile robes who cat-walked the ramp accompanied by earthy tracks from Gangs of Wasseypur.

Designer duo Monapali closed the day with their line that celebrated the eclectic fusion line.  “In our latest collection, we had unique mix of silhouettes and mediums in vibrant colours,” added the designer duo.

The day was marked by an amalgamation of vibrant colours and also even fusion line. “This season of the fashion week has managed to strike a chord by its use of handlooms that adds an avant-garde touch to the designs,” signed of Yudhajit Dutta, Event Director of the fashion week.
