Salil Bhatia showcased his collection, “Pandoras Box”, a tribute to the great Alexander McQueen. Bhatia tries to bring to life the divine expressions of McQueen’s morbid fashion through his Fall’17 collection, which is all about evil flowing out of the doomed box into the world leaving us with hope. You will see insects crawling out of pockets, snakes sitting on lapels, bugs popping out of their burrows and leeches drinking on intoxicating fluids.
