Thursday, 2 July 2015

Hey Peeps, the birthday month of the blog turned out to be full of adventures and mishaps. Lots to do, Lets get cracking. My sincere apologies; continuing with the last leg of the LIFW.

AARTIVIJAY GUPTA WAS INSPIRED BY THE ART OF MOSAIC GLASS FOR HER COLLECTION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015

Mumbai, 22 March, 2015: She has always created amazing prints whether it was doodles, legendary Indian heroes or French couture images. For Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 Aartivijay Gupta brought a colourful dimension to her creations with “My World of Glass” inspired by mosaic.
Her story of mosaic art revolved around nature with images of parrots, fish, birds, houses, trees and peacocks prancing on her basic silhouettes in all their vibrant finery. Bringing in a touch of Moroccan mosaic tea glasses with teal and gold art, Aarti used it for her soft organza ensembles.
To match the beauty of her inspiration, Aarti’s silhouettes were quaint. Garments were shaped like porcelain jars, rectangular wall hangings, cylindrical bottles or just lean and long shapes.
The designer showcased five key looks that were utterly feminine with stylish mass appeal. The sheath dress emblazoned with a parrot mosaic, skirt and Tee, cape tops with pencil skirts, cute ‘A’ line dresses and the glamorous glass organza maxi with gold nakshi work.

A combination of silk and glass organza was a constant for the collection as the sheer fragile fabric either covered the dresses or peeped cutely from under the hemlines. The printed pencil skirt looked sleek with a pure white blouse; while the long sleeve top and matching pants were a colourful addition. A long coat with an organza skirt/dress, bustier with pencil skirt, shorts matched with peplum jacket and a maxi with bird mosaic added to the look. Sack dresses had organza insets, and the empire line dress with a sheer fabric for the skirt was a feminine addition.
The solitary men’s wear entry further established the mood of the show with a sharply cut jacket and Bermudas with a floral print.
Each garment was an eye-catcher, which made Aartivijay Gupta’s “My World of Glass” a collection that every trend setter would want to be part of.

KUNAL ANIL TANNA’S MEN’S WEAR WAS INSPIRED BY JAPANESE CULTURE AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015

Bringing a Japanese flavour to men’s and women’s wear Kunal Anil Tanna’s “Ume Matsuri” (plum blossoms) collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 was like a breath of fresh summer breeze.
Based on traditional Japanese festivals when the plum and cherry blossoms come to life, Kunal used the techniques from that country for the tie and dye effects, which featured Hajime, Arasi Kumo etc. for airy summer voiles and textured cottons.
The silhouettes followed the Japanese inspirations for men’s wear as Kimono wrap tunics and pleated Hakkama pants revealed a comfy relaxed line. Detailing started with ornamentation by Kanzashi – the Japanese way of making fabric flowers for lapel pins, brooches, and boutonnieres etc.

Couching and mesh textures appeared regularly with wrap around belts replacing the Obe. Trousers were ankle length with double pleats on the hem, while a waist coat kurta with pleated ankle pants, collarless jacket, and fake waistcoat-shirt, double layered jacket, were interesting innovations.
Kimono overlaps gave tunics a dashing appearance; while wooden buttons were constant through the collection. The laser cut layered, quilting and pocket detailing were high points of the collection. Extended fold over lapels; graded Hajime touches, calf length gathered or box pleated Hakkama pants and cuff detailing completed the look.
For the women’s wear it was the bell sleeves top with sumo skirt, draped kurta in chiffon and silk, the high waist wide pants and blouse, maroon kimono top with pants, jumpsuit in net/silk and the pleated comfy wide pants teamed with a cropped bell sleeves top, followed the theme perfectly.
The colours matched the mood with plum, burgundy, and grape, teamed with shades of beige and soft blue.

Mumbai, March 22, 2015: Ace designer Wendell Rodricks did not fail to impress yet again with his collection ‘Popology’ at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2015 presented by Philips.

The collection unfolded onto the ramp in a sensational array of hues like sunshine yellow, burnt orange, olive green, pale mint, dove grey, black, candy pink, pale lilac, Turkish blue, turquoise blue and signature white. Each garment sent out a precise Pop Art statement in terms of the cut, colour and freshness, which radiated from the ensembles.
Based on a wave of nostalgia from the 1960’s style and silhouettes, the line brought a very fashion-forward touch to the ramp.  The signature style carried out by Wendell Rodricks, who is known to excel in his craft and expertise, was clearly evident as the models cat-walked, leaving the audience in awe.
The models danced down the runway to upbeat music like “Uptown Funk’ in a fun and catchy way that was contagious. The clothing line commenced with a black Lycra bikini and hotpants under silk crépe rectangular beach shirt. Soon it was the 60’s silhouettes like the purple crépe silk dress featuring a yellow satin stripe, olive and dove grey ribbons that were worn over yellow linen Capris.
Some of the men’s wear that accentuated the collection was a candy pink linen jacket that edged in black silk and paired with grey linen beach pyjamas and another that was a pop art men’s grey linen shirt worn over turquoise linen beach pyjamas.

Floral embroideries, geometric tile prints, well placed pleats and light texturing added an edgy touch to each piece while jewel and bead detailing worked to add a glamorous flavour.
