Passion for fashion in the couture capital of the East...

Fashion was in the air as India’s eastern metropolis was treated to some magnificent new creations from leading designers coupled with showcasing of exquisite and spectacular jewellery at Kolkata Couture & Lifestyle Fashion Week (KCLFW). The event was presented by Gitanjali Jewellers and was held at "The Park" between 14-17 April 11, bringing some of the best names in fashion together on a single platform.

The four-day Kolkata Couture and Lifestyle Fashion Week (KCLFW) which ended on April 17, KCLFW kicked off in a grand style each day with marvelous designs featuring a blend of Indian and Western styles that enhance and accentuate the beauty of the wearer. Top-notch designers like James Ferreira, Lina Tipnis, Zubair Kirmani, Archana Kochhar, Babita Malkani, Rohit Verma, Sulakshana Mong, Pradeep Agarwal, Anita Dongre, Paras Shalini and others showcased their collection in the second edition of the fashion extravaganza. City-based designers like Shruti Sancheti and Kishan Bagri also joined in to give the collections a local flavour.

Gracing the occasion on all four days from across the country, it was also the sparklers from leading diamond and gold jewellery brands Nakshatra, Gili, Asmi, D’damas and Sangini, that took the entire event to a different level altogether. Excitement reached fever pitch after every show with celebrities from Bollywood as well as Tollywood like Zarine Khan, Raima Sen, June Malia, Locket Chatterjee and others walking the ramp as show stoppers for some of the leading fashion designers.

Kingfisher Ultra had set up the Kingfisher Ultra Lounge at the fashion week where fashion met business. In between the shows, it was the Kingfisher Ultra Lounge that kept buzzing all night long, providing the much needed refreshment to an otherwise hectic day for designers, models, fashion lovers and fashionistas alike.

From golden bodies to a bevy of models in bridal attire or royal saga, in all it was a glittering week which left Fashion aficiandos and viewers wanting more and paving way for the third season next year of glamour and Glitz.
