Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week 2010 – Day 4

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 29, 2010

Debarun Mukherjee

I had seen Debarun’s collection during Lakme Fashion Week summer/Resort 2010 [You can read my reviews in the Lakme Fashion week section] and was impressed by the colourful summer wear clothes. Looking at this collection I have to say that Debarun’s collection is a complete package for clothes all around the year. I loved the black & white with subtle touch of grey and silver in the Autumn/Winter creation………… my words the clothes were magnificient. Debarun’s strongest selling point or USP is that all the outfits that he has created are extremely wearable for women of all ages which will definitely take his a long way. The women’s Autumn/Winter wear is very feminine and has a regal look which had dresses both long and short, jackets, lehenga-choli, evening gown, saree where as the men’s line is equally elegant. Loveedd the bubble , kimono & bell sleeves, the frill trimming on the hemlines, the exaggerated shoulder design, the delicate detail work which looks one with the fabric…………I only wish Debarun would have included some shades of purple or maroon in his collection. Nonetheless the styling was kept simple yet fabulous. My say on Debarun’s collection : Great work, in synch with the theme of the season…………..Hope to see more creative work from Debarun in future Red Carpet and Fashion weeks.









Charu Parashar

Char Parashar’s collection ‘Utpala’ which is an eco-friendly range of clothes is a collaboration with Birla Cellulose. The designs were definitely ‘innovative’ with exaggerated shoulders, geometrical designs, eye-catching cuffs, a lot of metal elements used in this futuristic designs. But I somehow think one or two piece might not be considered wearable. Colours like grey, black, blue, yellow were the highlight in the geometric background in skirts, short dresses, long dresses and tops. I would say some outfits had a Jackyl and Hyde kinda look where in one part it was colourful and in another it was grey with black. She has used shimmer in a very softer way and had styled the outfits in a creative ways with knight’s armor. On the whole like the prints which were very creative and the ‘thought’ in being Eco-friendly gets two thumbs up from me. Good work Charu.









Reynu Tandon

The black and white  with hint of colour creations of Reynu Tandon was admirable  and very classy. Trousers, shirts, short dresses, sarees were in the collection. The very fashionable clothes had patterns of checks, halter neck, boat neck, colourful stone work, etc. which were styled well with pulled back hair plus stilettos. Totally fashionable yet very wearable. My verdict on Reynu Tandon’s designer wear is Amazing work with these well fitted garments. No wonder her outfits are also doing well overseas.










Abraham & Thakore

The designer duo’s collection gave a very 1940s look with all black and white, Indian Ideas meeting the English culture sort………….but the clothes were wearable which it was definitely within the criteria and yet modern with the accessories like laptop bags and belts used to style. But I could not find a beauty and feminism in their collection. It was too raw with an out there expression……………..of course very simple clothes which looked dated that looking modern. There should have been a bit of shimmer since the fabrics used like satin, chiffon, velvet, crepe were rich enough but lacked a ‘look at me again’ factor. The prints were also out of Indian story books ……….which I just don’t get it. Even if the collection was all black and white, a pop of colour would have helped a lot. My verdict : I did not find this collection very creative…………..I hope to see more colour plus gorgeous feminine designs.
