From Chanel to Nachiket Barve, march of the Nymphs floods runways

Given the current socio-political turmoil and the ongoing volatile #MeToo scenario, fashion sees the resurgence of strong goddess looks on the runway signalling the idea of the return of the ultimate female figurines. Formidable mythical deities and fantastical figures from Greek, Roman and other civilisations have deeply inspired various resort and spring summer runway pieces for 2018. Closer home, we have seen these demi-goddesses referenced from time to time and have become the brand iconography of mega brands like Tarun Tahiliani and Gaurav Gupta. Internationally, the iconic Versace Medusa has seduced the luxury market for decades now. Vionnet, Madame Grès and other French houses from the 1920s have single-handedly resurrected the draped silhouettes seen on the Roman sculptures.
