Trend-Highlights from the Show
Pastel On Pastel Combinations
Swapnil Shinde Collection at Bangalore Fashion Week Winter Festive 2013
The combination of pastel colors was a pretty trend to watch out for. We liked how the continuity of pastel colored solid outfits was broken by using accessories in pastel colors as well. So we had a pretty dual colored jumpsuit, in coral and apricot orange, which featured a mauve belt.

Corals and powder blues were teamed with lime greens. The pastel combinations looked truly pleasant and emanated a young vibe.
Tube Gowns With Dual Fabrics Used For The Blouse and Skirt

An interesting feature of the collection was the use of two different materials for making the tube top and skirt of the gowns. There was a play of two variations of sequins used for the upper and lower part of a gown – as seen on Shilpa, and combining textured fabrics for the top and using crepe for the lower part of the gown as seen on the model above.
