Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

Lakme Fashion Week Resort 2012 – Day 5

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 7, 2012

As the LFW comes to a close, I must admit this time around the designs were fresh and will get to see a lot on the red carpet. Day 5 too had loads of new ideas incorporated into new collection. So let’s find out you walked with browny points with their elaborate collection on the final day.

MALAGA by Malini Agarwalla

Malini Agarwalla’s recent accessories collection titled ‘Kwazulu’ was inspired by the Zulu tribe of Africa. IT haa collection of clutch bags, handbags, belts, jewelry and shoes in vibrant colors & animal prints. Love the beaded neckpieces which can be combined with any plain color outfit to spice up your look since the jewelry itself looks like detailwork.  The look was young, flirty & sophisticated ………all combined together is how I can describe this new line.

MALAGA had not one but a bevy of celebs walk down the runway  like Vidya Malavade, Maria Gorretti, Mini Mathur, Sharmila Khanna, Madhu Shah and Shaheen Abbas. IFP thinks and definitely feels MALAGA has a winner collection with ‘Kwazulu’ and hope to see more of these creations on top celebs.

Jatin Varma

Jatin Varma’s recent work ‘Glisten – Shine by Reflection’  was presented at LFW. Where Sequins and shimmer were the highlight of his earlier collection, laser cut in pastels took centrestage in ‘Glisten’. Alluring short cocktail dresses, grand gowns, sheer skirts, sexy swimwear, Bolero jackets were part of the collection. Model Ankit Shorey dressed in black was show stopper for JV. The laser cut mesh were used a drapes or in form of detailwork in this contemporary creation which IFP feels many fashion forward women would love to experiment with. Jatin Varma has taken a bit of risk with his recent works but I am sure that his effort will not go unnoticed. Last year saw a lot of JV designs on the magazine covers & red carpet……….this one will win many fashion votes too.

Rohit Bal

‘Kaarigar’ is the tilte of Rohit Bal’s new collection, had a line of velvet jackets, floor length Anarkali, Bandhgala jackets, Sherwani and Kurtas. ‘Magnificient’ is how I can describe this collection in a word for it’s grandeur and splendour. The colors started from pastels and transformed to darker hues by the end of the finale. Beautiful motifs inspired by nature were created on silhouettes by the craftsman or better known as ‘Kaarigar’…………the richness simply made me sit up in awe of their work. Model Sheetal Mallar was the show stopper for Rohit.  IFP loves the fact that Rohit has always used traditional Indian kaarigari in his work and made it look so brilliant on the runway.

    Malaga by Malini Agarwala was purely posh, the best head-to-toe ensembles this season + I love the colour blocking.
