The collection presented was a colorful and geometric festival of 36 garments including a variety of saris and other creations. The colours and shapes were bold and elegant including cocktail saris, short tunics and beautiful evening gowns.
Bright colors were electric and were perfectly complemented by nude tones across the range of garments. Combined with geometric prints, the collection reminded us of the retro 70’s and 80’.
Some of the looks were varied with slashed sleeves, draw strings or corded necklines. Moreover, the use of different fabrics, such as velvet and silk created a paradox and asymmetric lines enhanced the retro-chic allure.
A diverse collection offered long dresses as well as ballerina skirts and corsets. One of the most noticeable aspects was the way the designer played with the concept of asymmetry, adding that all important edge. We also saw beautiful sequin and crystal encrusted evening gowns perfect for a red carpet entrance.
Finally, presenting the finale was Bollywood actress Sameera Reddy in a sparkling sari.
