Kshitij Choudhary showcased his collection ‘The Army Of Glam’ at the India Beach Fashion Week in his signature flowy silhouette and khadi fabric designs. He, who is known for designs of one tone shade for his collections, opted for military green this time as a tribute to the army memorials all around the world with an addition of the Indian touch.

His collection for both men and women ranged from asymmetrical tops paired with pants, structured floor length garments, jackets, capes and blazers. Kshitij didn’t forget to add his element of metallic décor on his designs. Another interesting component witnessed on his models was the designer double filter mask with spikes.

Talking about his army inspired collection, Kshitij said, “I had been on vacation to Europe and it’s neighboring countries. The cities that I travelled across had army memorials because the European continent and the world in general has been a part of the World wars, the military history is strong everywhere. This exactly was my inspiration behind the ‘The Army Of Glam’ collection, a tribute to the army life. However, I wanted to leave a positive memory and hence chose to keep it glamorous. My collection has military green as the key color and in order to promote Indian fashion I’ve used khadi as my fabric primarily.

“I’ve have been associated with for the last five seasons where I am infact their official stylist as well. I have styled the other designers showcasing their collection. It’s always fun to a part of this show since I get to see the creations of other designers, learn from them and also play the role of a designer at the same time”, he added elaborating on his association with the fashion week.

Overall, his collection not only offer an ode to the military history but also give an essence of the city lights and transform the 9-5 ambition of the fast-paced working armies to a different one from that of 9-5! This intense transformation is the vision of this season of Kshitij Choudhary’s collection inspired this along trip to Europe this year, exploring both, the banjee and boujee of the city lives. Structured but flowy, skin enough for them to lose control, military enough for you to command! The search for bourgeois uniformity ends here with a promise of immaculate interplay of khadi with flowy fabrics, making a bold statement: That you have arrived.
