The man of fine cut: Hari Anand
Parvathy Omnakuttan to set the ramp on fire at the Kochi International Fashion Week
His philosophy is 'less is more.' Hari Anand, the host designer for the Kochi International Fashion Week, is all set to revolutionise the fashion scene in Kerala.
Hari Anand will showcase his 'Resort wear' collection for the Fashion Week starting on Friday at hotel Casino in Willingdon Island. Thirty-five models will walk the ramp for him and the show-stopper is none other than Miss India-Universe and actor Parvathy Omanakuttan. Hari, a product of JD Institute of Fashion, Mumbai, has focussed on classy and sophisticated cuts and designs. He is known for his unique print lines with stories and gossips from a Canadian cartoonist on the fabric. His ensembles are known for their immaculate finish, modish cuts, and high-end fashion details. Every year he launches new collections based on themes like resort/mother earth, alphabets, karma, sex and the city etc.
Upholding an experience of more than 18 years in the fashion industry, Hari has done over more than eight shows all over India, with three shows every year for the Fashion TV. He outlines his designs based on what is hitting the trend in the market. He plays with stories and sensuality when it comes to designing attires.
Hari believes that beauty lies within. "Just give it a nudge to bring it forth," says Hari. Being an experimental and artistic person by birth, he plays with black and white colors and fabrics such as georgette, lycra, satin, metallic chiffon and linen.
Hari's 35 designer resort wear for the KIFW 2011 will be exhibited to the audience during the fashion week.
