Designer Pawan Sachdeva is one of those fashion people that prefers staying under the radar ..... In my one year of covering Fashion and Couture weeks in India ..... i have never come across him in the numerous post fash week parties or social events !! ..... But i have certainly heard of him many a times, in relation to Men's designer collection wear ..... it is another matter that he makes stunning womenswear too !! ..... So when i got invited to "The Festival of Hope" , a Fashion Show celebrating Cancer Survivors in association with the Indian Cancer Society .... there was an invite from Pawan to walk for his Finale show as a Fashion Blogger !!!! ..... Celebrating the survival from Cancer and also creating awareness among the citizens,  this was “The Festival of Hope”'s third chapter and Pawan has been lending his support to this worthy cause since its inception .... Along with cancer survivors , his creations were showcased on well known names from industry, society, models and Bollywood personalities ..... I was thrilled to walk for such a worthy cause with my bloggers weapon, my camera :) .... and because it was a collection which was truly a class apart ..... i clicked my fellow Ramp walkers backstage before the show ..... ( can't let go of documenting a designer collection, can I ? ;p) ..... The best thing about the collection was its palette of monochrome .... Black and White ... Classy Cocktail Couture !! .... Although there were beautiful formal gowns and dresses .... i especially loved the Tuxedos and Contrast Shawl Collars .... very very James Bond and Savile Row !!! ..... Polka dots, Paisleys, Velvet, Black Lace on Nude Satin and Colour on Colour Bead Embellishments made the collection truly red carpet, glamorous and ageless !! ..... Indeed it was so refreshing to see a designer's creations on real people and different body types after waves and waves of thin famished models on the catwalk :P .... Choreographer Ronica Jacob did a fabulous job of keeping us in line with timely cues .... and Deepa Arora sang one of my most favourite song live ... "Yeh Mera Deewanapan Hai" .... the song certainly calmed my palpitation before the ramp walk !! .... Do check out A Class Apart !!

The Collection :


Designer Pawan Sachdeva unveiled a breathtakingly classic collection of Cocktail Dresses and Evening Gowns for Men & Women called, “A Class Apart”.  The show stopper for the show was well known industrialist Sanjeev Bijli.
From Tea length & A-line dresses, empire waistline, and full length evening gowns for women and the tuxedos for men, each garment has been beautifully designed,  styled and  impeccably created.  The entire collection in the Cassic black & white colour reflects upon the designer’s passion for elegance and perfection. 
"There’s nothing to beat a flattering cocktail dress to shine at any party or social event. Cocktail dresses are not just restricted for evening parties, they are now a women’s most preferred choice for receptions and other formal evening events. There is a certain allure to wearing a cocktail dress that empowers a woman to be confident and sexy at the same time. While a Man in a tuxedo exudes Class & Power", and as Indians are increasingly opting for International destinations for their weddings,  there’s definitely a lot of shift towards cocktail couture wear in India. Talking about cocktail couture trends, my advice would be, “don’t follow the trends blindly”. Instead opt for the cocktail dress which suits your body type as well as which is ideal for the occasion. In my collection, “A Class Apart”, I have cocktail dresses which start from Tea length, A-line dresses, empire waistline, and full length evening gowns. One should choose a cocktail dress that highlights the best assets of your body. Instead of hiding the parts of your body that you consider unflattering, choose a cocktail dress that highlights what you best like about your body.
