LFW Winter Festive ’14 Highlights: Day 2
Debashri Samanta’s collection featured loosely fitted, long and straight silhouettes with a sophisticated color palette of dark greys and blues.
Sayantan Sarkar’s collection was layering done right, featuring chic capes, ultra modern silhouettes, and asymmetrical edges. The color palette was pretty pinks and blues paired with neutrals. We also saw a lot of pleats and doll print.
Divya Sheth sent down the ramp a range of figure-clinging, lightly embellished designs in metallic yellows and greens.
The Anavila collection consisted of prints and drapes that spelled out E-L-E-G-A-N-C-E! Rustic kurta blouses, teamed with cotton sarees in dark earthy tones were all things lovely.
Purvi Doshi’s vibrant and brilliantly colorful collection had heavy influences from Gujarat’s mirrorwork craft. The palette consisted of solid brights like red, green and orange. The silhouette was a flattering A-line with pleats and gathers creating flounce.
Shashikant Naidu scored on the spiritual, with Ganpati prints and traditional drapes. The collection also featured charming floral print sarees and draped blouses in earthy tones.
Rouka by Shreejith Jeevan was heavy on oriental influence, with long, loose silhouettes. Grey, black, white, red and navy made up the color palette. Fabric ruffles were used as embellishments. Best part – the music was an Indianised version of the Game of Thrones theme! Needless to say, that was awesome.
Muted pastels and whites made up the color palette for MARG by Soumitra’s collection. Long panelled outfits in a flattering A-line silhouette were tastefully dusted with light embellishments, mainly on the necklines and sleeves.
The Vaishali S collection for LFW Winter Festive ’14 was all things bright. A vibrant color scheme on rustic designs made for a lovely range – perfect for bridesmaids! Friends of brides-to-be this season should definitely check this one out.
Krishna Mehta’s collection started off with blues and whites in tie and dye prints – so elegant! – gradually moving to bright pinks and oranges. We also spotted quite a dose of jacquard there and “shirt on shirt” layering on the styling front.
Day 2 ended with Sanjay Garg showing his collection of conventional ghagra-cholis in a contemporary, modernised silhouette. The outfits were single color tone from top to bottom, which looked the height of elegant. This is another collection girls on the bridal party should check out, with perfectly fitted, contoured silhouette and style lines.
