We loved the work of ruffles by Rina Dhaka and Shantanu-Nikhil over Dress and top while Varun bahl played over Georgette ruffles panels. Please note that we are here mentioning only those trend which is commercially viable in case you are looking to manufacture now for the AW17 trend.

Texture Floral prints and embellishment again staying as a top trend for the season as spotted at Varun Bahl opening show over neoprene.

Fabric & Textile

Like from the few seasons tulle and net are getting used as the fabric to create sheer effect, lace as a fabric is still on top demand among designers and we believe it to continue to be choice of consumers. For the couture finish jacquard is all time favourite with different methods of embroidery techniques like dabka, gold zari, and appliqué stitching.

Surface ornamentation

dabka, goldzari and appliqué on to the laces and jacquard. 


Gladiator and platform shoes are one of the biggest trend to follow. We at F-trend believe platform shoes are next big trend for SS16/17 based on our research.
