Payal Singhal Festive 2012
India in Color: Vibrant Young Modern and Global…. lets meet New India………
The pink of mystical Rajasthan, the joyous, bright hues of the northern frontier, and the balmy bright colors of the east offer a kaleidoscopic insight into an almost perfect blend of history and modernism. And perhaps a trip down its many roads will lead you to an understanding of its pulse. Maybe you’ll take the road untaken and bring home a whole new hue to your life….
Inspired by Indian Adivasi costumes of Kutch and Orissa this collection of vibrantly hued ensembles in a rainbow of acid neon’s of cyan, fuchsia, lime, cobalt, and indigo is a tribute to the colorful tapestry of the country. Spun into a visual story with contemporary silhouettes like Kutras, kaftans, tunics, dresses, kalidar saris and short lehngas and embroideries like pita, abhla and zardosi for a rural meets urban text.
Payal established her label in India in 2000 to fill a niche for eclectic Indian clothing for young style setters. Now thanks to a global design sensibility the label stocks in various countries and travels with its unique mobile trunk shows all over the world.
Payal will be showcasing her collection on 3rd August, 2012 at the Lakme Fashion Week – Winter/Festive 2012. IFP likde her previous collection which had Indian bridal-wear, this time around we are waiting to be surprised by the designer with something new.
