The last day of Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013 kicked of with “Dark Angel” by Jinal Sutariya and Heena Surani under the label House of Chic. This chic and edgy accessories collection consisted of pieces from statement necklaces to skull shaped clutches and you could see how this fashion show came to light as show stopper Pooja Gupta was clothed in a jeweled body vest.Pragya and Megha, the mother-daughter designer duo, presented their collection “Samor” inspired by exotic colorful birds. This funky line showcased modern drapes and cuts in a wide array of colors with sketch, smear and streak effect on the fabrics. The trendy bags, pom poms on the shoes and long quirky earrings were a few things that stood out from this collection.
“Charkha” by Rahul and Shikha Mangal under the label “Vrisa” was a boho inspired range of Indian and ethnic wear. A simple and clean cut collection in shades of white, beige, persian blue and brown consisting of trousers, long jackets, anarkalis, and stoles in tribal and oriental prints.
“Aangan” by Sonam and Paras Modi for their label “SVA” was portrayed as an exotic collection inspired from the land of the Rajputs and Maharajas. I loved the detailing on the garments which consisted of tiny cloth buttons, embroidery, and prints on the edges of dupattas, hemlines, tops and sleeves of the garment.
“CHOKHI” by Archana Kochhar showcased a spectacular collection which was inspired by the rich state of Rajasthan. A few things that I liked from her collection was the bandanas, nose-to-ear nathnis, elephant print, mustache buttons, and the sequined belts.
“A Royal Procession” by Shyamal and Bhumika was a collection inspired by the Rajput/Mughal era. Their collection consisted of Indian as well as Pakistani attire in form of pants, dhotis, cholis, ghagras and sarees in shades of red, cream, pink, and gold to adhere to the wedding theme.
Reliance Trendz presented Bisou Bisou by Michele Bohbot. In my opininion this was a very up-beat collection of ready to wear garments in shades of blue, pink and orange. She showcased a very young and modern range of western wear consisting of a lot of tribal prints and abstract patterns on dresses, peplums, jackets, pants, dresses and blouses.
Sabyasachi Mukherjee‘s royal collection was the perfect end to the Lakme Fashion Week. He paid a tribute to the regal era of queens with outfits in shades of gold (obviously), red, black, cream and pink along with breathtaking details in each and every garment. A few things I liked from his collection were the striped blouses, half lace sarees, floral printed lehengas and the belted anarkalis.
