Sachin & Babi - #NYFW Spring 2017

 "Pairs of ballet dancers were demi-plié-ing and tondu-ing around the edges of Sachin & Babi's Spring 2017 presentation today. Yes, ballet served as an inspiration for Sachin Ahluwalia's collection, but this wasn't a typical rehashing of satin ribbons and blush pink. Inspired by the strong women around him, the designer set out to explore the relationship between strength and grace in his collection. That's how he ended up with ballet finding along the way new techniques for incorporating his signature ruffles and a more relaxed, slightly bohemian spirit. Reaching that teenaged demographic is certain smart, but it wasn't the only motivator for Ahlywalia to try out a more informal spirit this season. As someone who deals primarily in the everyingwear and occasion market, the designer noticed his customers looking for more unfussy pieces that could transition from day-to-night and allow for more casual wear. "Babi has one side of her closet where she puts her eveningwear. I want to take over the full closet," he said. "And make that affordable for her." Customers old and new won't argue with that." -
