It's #NYFW: Sachin & Babi Fall 2017

"A whiff of nostalgia and introspection hit Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia this season. The reasons are many: Not only are they celebrating 20 years in business and marriage, but they’d also just returned from a trip to Jaipur, India. There they reignited their love for bejeweled pieces and lively prints, finding inspiration not only in classically Indian ideas but also in the vestiges of the British empire like botanical wallpapers and Jodhpur silhouettes. “Heritage” read a crest at the bottom of the show notes; backstage, the pair spoke of a fusing of cultures. The third culture in the mix here is that of America, where the Ahluwalias have lived for decades, turning their fabric business into a staple fashion collection of the society set.The fusion couldn’t have gone better. Among the catwalk highs were a series of what you could only call eveningwear anoraks, silky, floral, and cinched at the waist with elastic drawstring. The fur-clad guests that attended the brand’s runway show at the National Arts Club in Gramercy will probably want to snatch it up immediately." -
