With a collection entitled “Medieval Pop” Sannam Chopra certainly wanted to make a statement. It was all about drawing inspiration from armour and creating tastefully loud pieces and accessories. With regal Swarovski crystals and coloured leather pieces, these pieces certainly did pop. Whilst retaining femininity yet exuding a quiet strength, this collection would be perfect for those summer cocktail parties.
Taking inspiration from the art deco movement of the 1920’s and mixing this with some electrifying shades Sandhya Garg’s debut offered something fresh and youthful. Materials such as lace, chiffon and georgette gave a feminine touch to more graphic shapes and colours. The detailing on the collection kept it contemporary with use of 3-D embroidery, feathers and cut-out leather. Directional and bold, Garg mixes together a playfulness with female tailoring.
