MRINALINI CHANDRA OPENED DAY FOUR AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2015 WITH HER “MATHEMATICS OF SORTS” COLLECTION
Mumbai, 29 August, 2015: For Mrinalini Chandra Mathematics was a subject that baffled her during her childhood. To pay homage to her “favourite” subject Mrinalini’s collection called “Mathematics of Sorts” opened Day Four at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. But while the subject may have been the bane of her life, the collection was a stunning amalgamation of creatively designed numerals that was an awe inspiring presentation on the runway.

No woman could have ever imagined that from the binary systems to the abacus, equations and numbers, these inspirations could turn into conversation stopping jewellery for her.

Using expert jewellery making techniques like rawa, navratana, jadai and nakashi, the craftsmanship moved to amazing heights. Elaborate giant shoulder dusters with the Number 5 artistically used were outstanding. Necklaces stretched from neck to navel and featured geometric symbols, while jagged linked triangles worked beautifully for hair-cum-ear ornaments.

Chandeliers and chokers were worked with numerals while waist bands and armlets were done with circles. The multiplication sign was a huge “V” collar and back drape. Graduating necklace, bolero and belts with numbers and a neck to waist necklace were stunning. Size made a difference for the jewellery and it was at its extra large limit. The final Pi sign was turned into a gold trail over a sari pallav.

When a woman wants to add glittering stylish numbers to her jewel box then she needs to choose from Mrinalini Chandra’s “Mathematics of Sorts” collection to make a calculated impact.

Giving their innovative touches to fabrics, shapes and proportions, the pair opted for a slightly carefree approach to construction. Seams were unfinished and left hanging to create drapes, while grosgrain tapes appeared instead of plackets.

When it came to appliqués, the duo was very relaxed allowing them to appear like peeling wall paint but the darts of the garments got the inside out stitched treatment. With various weights of cotton blends and knits as the basics, the collection also included acrylic wool with embroidery to create a hand knitted surface texture.

The colours stayed with black and white for most of the collection but brought in pale grey and pink with a hint of lilac. Midis had long sleeves with contrast patch pockets. Heavy knitted covers over asymmetric shirt and skirt, drop shoulder coat, crimped blouse/skirt and the layered long sleeved midi had a relaxed languid look. Black Pinafores appeared with blouses and the black pinched detailed dress and pants stayed within the loose silhouette region.
For buyers who are looking for something off the beaten fashion track, the collection by Teresa Laisom and Utsav Pradhan for their Munkee.See.Munkee.Doo label had ample possibilities.

ARUNIMA MAJHI MYSTIFIED THE AUDIENCE WITH HER LUSTROUS “LAYLA” COLLECTION AT JABONG STAGE DURING LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2015 
Mumbai, 29 August, 2015: What do we know about Goths? Not much, though one can lean on Arunima Majhi for perfectly portraying them. “Layla” was a neo Goth Street Wear collection deriving its roots from the Black Parotia Birds presented at Jabong Stage during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. These ‘Birds Of Paradise’ spread their skirts out and danced on the forest floor like Ballerinas.

Gliding over the catwalk, the models looked divine in deconstructed eveningwear. Androgynous cuts infused with kimonos and shirts gave an edgy and mysterious look, while the twists and skirts swirled around with an almost balletic feel.

Arunima Majhi’s core hue for this line was black, which brought to life the enchanting gothic look, inspired by the feathers of the Parotia bird. Hints of beige, grey, royal blue and amber added to the ethereal feel of the line. Block and screen prints depicting the Parotia bird further, added to the organic soul of this collection, which was a tribute to nature.

Keeping Indian textiles and handlooms in mind, Arunima Majhi used indigenous fabrics like raw silk, Chanderi and cotton silk to bring this vision together. The designer made use of white embroidery in motifs of the Parotia bird on these ingenious fabrics. She also made use of the trending cowl drape in capes, gowns and dresses.

An asymmetric, flowing black gown with the majestic bird embroidered right in the centre was a complete stand out of her collection. Another garment that the audience awed at was a printed, double layered, frilled skirt teamed with a sheer black frilled top.

The “Layla” collection by Arunima Majhi was dramatic yet simple, sweet, strong perfectly depicting the mysterious ballerina created for today’s Nocturnal Goddess.
