‘Antar-Agni’ by Ujjawal Dubey presented his exclusive collection at the Van Heusen + GQ Fashion Nights which is a classic blend of chic and boho. Strutting the ramp with flamboyance was Ayushmann Khurrana donning a cross over black shirt with a grey t-shirt underneath and black low pleated bottoms.
The collection was seen incorporating Ujjawal’s core elements in the design philosophy adding nuance details, smart cuts and relaxed silhouettes. Colours like dark blue, navy, black and light grey have been used with clean, sharp silhouettes and fluidity in the collection. Being young and dynamic, the collection added a cutting edge to the overall look. The use of trendy stripes and edgy fabrics with a good mix of short lengths and drapes formed the core essence of this collection.
Sharing his thoughts on the collection, Che Kurrien, Editor, GQ India, said, “Ujjawal’s designs have an innate quality that brings fabric to life in the most eclectic fashion. His collection today was no different as it brought to the forefront contemporary looks that reflected his passion for nuanced designs, smart cuts and relaxed silhouettes.”
Talking about his inspiration for the collection, Ujjawal Dubey said, “It was a great experience putting this show together for GQ! The line shows a beautiful transition between the Antar Agni man & the GQ man. Ayushmann was the perfect muse for this collection.”
