The wedding season is on in full swing and it’s the time when most of us turn to beautiful designer wear for all the lavish occasions that we must absolutely attend. On November 12, master couturier Sabyasachi unveiled his fall/winter bridal couture collection Firdaus in collaboration with French designer Christian Louboutin and needless to say, fashionistas went crazy. The question here is, at a time when men are taking equal pride in dressing up, why not have a wedding-wear event focused on them? Tapping into this sentiment and much to the delight of handsome, fashionable men, GQ is coming up with their second edition of Fashion Night Out in collaboration with Van Heusen.

Scheduled to be held on December 3-4, in Mumbai, the event will see India’s top menswear designers like Rajesh Pratap Singh, Shantanu and Nikhil, Sahil Aneja, Abhishek Paatni, Kunal Rawal, Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna and the versatile Rohit Bal unveil never-seen-before collections. We are a little curious as to what to expect at the venue which will be raining men and we have some scoop!

Abhishek Paatni, the engineer-turned-designer will showcase Japanese techniques such as quilting and sashiko stitching in his collection.

Sahil Aneja’s upcoming collection might actually turn out to be a delight as it is inspired by the modern man shifting between his comfort zone and an international fashion world.

Rajesh Pratap Singh will showcase a line that is emblematic of a new direction in silhouettes and construction. The looks are expected to be pure, modern and definitely inspired by small-town India.

Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna’s collections will transport you back in time, specifically the 1960s. In their words, new vintage is the new rage.
