Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week 2010 – Day 5
Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 30, 2010
Anupama Dayal’s colourful collection had a blend of Indian style with western designs but unfortunately I found too much of mix was there in every outfit. I was difficult for me to emphasize on one thing in an outfit. The mix of colourful prints with a lot of different coloured detailing like mirror work plus sequin work made it too much for an individual garment. I felt as if the designer was trying to put everything in one outfit which ultimately resulted in too much of hotchpotch. Take for example a bubble sleeves in a kurti marred the look of delicate mirror work and geometric prints on a beautiful peach colour kurti or a printed colourful halter dress with mirror work on the waist but draped with a grey colour printed shirt with a red & white check bow. It would have been much more preferable if Anupama would have concentrated on one feature only in every outfit. Liked the colours but this collection seemed more fit for summer than winter.
Rabani & Rakha
Now here is a glamorous collection from the designer trio Rahul & Shibani Rastogi with Gautam Rakha . The clothes were fit for red carpet events as they had a lot of ‘Bling’ factor to it. I liked the saree which were done keeping in mind the western fashion with bold designs in blouse using colours like grey, blue, peach. Net seemed to have been used the most amongst all other fabric in this collection with a lot of detail work on the shoulders, waist line, the hemlines of the sarees. I lovveedd the saree creations though still felt the evening gown could have been modified more avoid too much of silver fabric and keeping it simple with a bit of detailing only. My verdict : Sarees get two thumbs up from me for their glamour quotient………..love to see more from this trio.
Women who love to flaunt their bodies would find a treasure in Khushali Kumar’s collection ‘Reve’ which had amazing short dresses but I am yet to be convinced for her Evening gown collection which I felt were too plain. Her short dresses were very contemporary with use of loads of silver in detailing as well as fabric. One can easily wear these outfits in the international events since the clothes have oodles of style and appeal to it. My say on Khushali’s collection : Loovveedd the short dresses but the gowns need more ‘Bling’ to it.
