ARCHANA RAO, KARISHMA SHAHANI KHAN AND HUEMN BY PRANAV MISHRA AND SHYAMA SHETTY MADE FASHION MAGIC ON THE RAMP
AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015

ARCHANA RAO'S NOSTALGIC PARIS INSPIRED COLLECTION LEFT A LASTING IMPACT AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015

When the inspiration is a 70 years old apartment in Paris with its treasure trove of memories, the collection has to have a nostalgic appeal. Archana Rao's "The Apartment" for her 'Frou-Frou' label at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 revived the memories of a bygone Parisian era as she creatively merged colours and fabrics with romantic nuances.
Shades of a soft palette started with nudes, blush pinks, pearly whites and moved to strong hues of military green and ochré. Matching the gentle beauty of the colours was the mélange of fabrics that moved from versatile hosiery and frail nets, to pure cotton and sheer organza. Detailing played a soft symphony, as embroidered cut-work and pearl minutiae added to the ethereal touch but the silhouettes were kept relaxed yet regal.

 The show opened with an ochré net skirt sprinkled with green tassels and white shirt with pink appliqués on shoulder. Next on the catwalk was a crêpe tulle gown with pink tassels, cutwork white shoulder cape over maxi and a white shirt worn with will-power slit kurta.
Net and solid fabrics worked well together, while patchwork quilted coat matched with shirt and trousers and a shaded pearl edged sari with cutwork cropped top added variety. Net capes appeared over sheaths and the rust pearl fringed toga, voluminous khaki net skirt and body-con dress with patched pockets created the mood.
Some interesting men's wear appeared on the ramp where appliquéd shirts and jackets were teamed with relaxed trousers.
Stopping the show was the very petite Aditi Rao Hydari who glided down in an empire line light maroon layered cutwork gown.
For women who long for that nostalgic Parisian touch in their wardrobe "The Apartment" by Archana Rao is what they will opt for.

KARISHMA SHAHANI KHAN PAID HOMAGE TO INDIGO WITH HER "NEEL" COLLECTION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015

Indigo the eternal popular shade of blue loved by all from various walks of life, has been at the centre of fashion for decades. Paying homage to this eternal shade, Karishma Shahani Khan's "Neel" collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 moved from comfort with functional detailing and then gradually went into traditional Asian mending and repairing techniques.
Boro, Sashika and Kantha gave the ensembles a richness that was timeless. The motifs were inspired by the blossoms that garland the blue skinned Indian deities with hints of vermillion and kumkum. Using fabulous hand woven silks, cottons, medium weight recycled denim and reused remnants of fabrics starting with Malkha cotton, ikats and hand woven silk; Karishma brought in a symphony of colours like white, red and mustard to balance the indigo shade.

Layered to perfection, the garments in varying lengths were perfectly balanced for each entry. Tiered dresses were matched with printed skirts and flared jackets; cross-over tie-up kurtas appeared with Capris while bias cut shirt was worn with shaded sari and asymmetrical sleeveless waistcoat. The cute arrow print appeared occasionally to highlight the ensembles along with other motifs. An eye-catcher was the looped flared reversible skirt and layers of soft jackets in varying silhouettes that added to the very folksy fun-filled nature of the collection.
When traditional weaves and colours come seamlessly together, then the result is the stunning "Neel" collection by Karishma Shahani Khan.

PRANAV MISHRA AND SHYAMA SHETTY SHOWCASED A NEO LUXE COLLECTION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015

From placement prints on black, white and grey last season, Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty for their "Huemn" label showcased a neo luxe collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015. Combining luxury in comfort and vice versa, the designers brought in stark femininity that had a flirtatious fascination for masculine coordinates. Classic silhouettes were revised with 3D futuristic fabrics and New Age print treatments.
Easy-to-wear summer apparel was layered with handmade techniques and finishes for suiting fabrics that enhanced the collection to a premium level. To match the silhouettes and fabrics the luxurious colour story was woven around fuchsia and gold with sheer white for lush silk, cotton and knits.
In a fast paced show, the collection opened with a white double sleeved shirt, followed by a midi shirt splashed with an abstract design. Double breast jackets were in red with one button closure or in black pinstripes. Trousers were cut short above the ankle, while sheer covers made the shorts and shirts look dressy.

For the Summer/Resort season of 2015 Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty's "Huemn" label offered a bouquet of exotic ensembles to the adventurous trendsetters.​

The colours were a magnificent line up of fuchsia, orange and red, which moved gradually to relaxing cool tones of indigo, black and purple with bursts of embroidery and hints of ivory. Block prints lots of tie/dye motifs and a riot of prints were part of the multilayered creations.

VAISHALI SHADANGULE'S "BEHRUPIA" COLLECTION WAS A FASHIONABLE ODE TO KHAND AND KHADI AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015

Inspired by the traditional performing art form of India in Maharashtra, Vaishali Shadangule's collection called "Behrupia" (or Songadi) inspired her to use this theme. Like the thread which changes its form on the looms and keeps attracting the buyers like the Behrupia does in public with disguises and hidden identity; the creations reflected this theme.
Like the human Behrupia Vaishali zeroed in on the thread, which turns into Khand, the fabulous textile of Maharashtra, which has an amazing hand weave. Mixing Khand with khadi Vaishali reinvented the textiles and presented them in modern shapes with intricate geometric construction for dual tone creations.

The colour palette was muted with white, black, maroon, grey, blue and gold for short and long dresses with hints of drapes.
The show opened with a belted grey dress with maroon collar and cowl back followed by a lean column long dress. Draped angular one- shoulder creation, pleated fuchsia mini skirt or a sheath with the same detailing, a modern version of the cheongsam were blended skilfully for traditional fabrics with contemporary silhouettes. A royal blue toga with intricate drape, the white long sheer trench coat and layered organza Khand choli were innovative constructions from Vaishali.

The stylish creation with maroon bodice and white layered shoulder drape was a study in intricate construction. The deep blue lean maxi with side panels, the stunning gown with cut-out back and the halter asymmetric maxi creation in grey/black/white checked/striped were stunners.
The one-shoulder draped blue gown, another in deep green, the stylish white khadi/Khand long sleeved summer coat and the dramatic cowl neck shifts were intricately crafted entries on the ramp.
The final white khadi sari with a grey/white layered choli sporting a front tie-up was a super end.
For lovers of Indian textiles with a creative twist, Vaishali Shadangule's "Behrupia" collections will always add a surprise element to the wardrobe
