Designers Gopal and Manali showed their collection on the first day of the Blenders Pride Bangalore Fashion Week 9th Edition Winter / Festive 2013.
Bangalore Fashion Week Winter Festive 2013 – Gopal Manali
The outfits showcased on the ramp had a fusion feel to it and was quite avant garde in their presentation. One saw the vivid use of gamcha prints, gota work, ruffles and appliqué work that were also made to blend with each other. The most interesting part of the show was how the ensembles were created by mixing unrelated and standalone pieces.

Separates belonging to absolutely different genres were clubbed together to create the avant garde looks. So we saw the model here walk the ramp in an outfit that comprised of a top, jacket, short skirt and a fusion lehenga.

The gamcha-gota saree was an interesting piece from the collection. This one in particular was paired with a raw silk top – which again, is a standalone piece that can be worn with skirts as well as other lowers too.

This outfit featured a style reminiscent of the Finnish national costume and was given its own unique twist by the designers – with a galore of ruffles that added vibrancy to the attire.
