Rahul’s Kalavati should watch out

Rahul’s Kalavati should watch out
Payal Pratap went all the way to the Kutch for her Gates of Dawn collection which opened Day One of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week. In its essence, it was very gypsy with its swirls, layers and volumes.  She used a lot of geometric embroidery, cross stitch and hand detailing. Models walked the ramp in gathered skirts and corset tops, angrakhas, ghagra pants in tussars, mongas, chanderis, cotton silks, net and cotton voiles. A burst of colours and rustic accessories were some of the highpoints.

After Rahul Gandhi’s Kalavati comes Anand Kabra’s Taramati – but on the ramp. In colour schemes of alta red, lime, gold, ivory white, black and royal blue, Kabra highlighted the story of Taramati. Fragmented mosaics and jail patterns on doors and windows featured prominently – giving the story from Deccan a solid base. Kabra stitched the story together using malkha cotton, georgette, chiffon and crepes.
