AIFW S/S 2016 Kommal Sood

Kommal Sood’s latest Spring/Summer 2016 collection started with dresses in neutral and pastel shades and than gradually goes with the feather prints and ended with dazzling sequinned gowns and sheer metallic dresses.

Remember the 'great fall' moment supermodel Naomi Campbell had at Vivenne Westwood's 1993 show. So we had a small moment liked that (not camparing though) at recently happened Amazon India Fashion Week when model Radhika Bopaiah was somehow not able to walk in the shoes and finally ended barefooted on the runway and confidently carried the Tier dress by designer Kommal Sood.
