LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014 | SOUMITRA MONDAL AND VAISHALI SHADANGULE

Hi Everyone,

SOUMITRA MONDAL AND VAISHALI SHADANGULE PRESENTED THEIR SUPERB ETHNIC COLLECTIONS AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014
SOUMITRA MONDAL’S “WOVEN ROYALTY” REVIVED CLASSIC INDIAN HERITAGE AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014

Bringing unique weaves and the juxtaposition of patterns, motifs and techniques in embroidery, Soumitra Mondal for his label “Marg” presented “Woven Royalty” - a revival of classic Indian heritage at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014.
Inspired by the attire and lifestyle of vintage royal Indian families; Soumitra had skilled craftsmen to recreate the fabrics. The Jamdani, khadi, silk and cottons with a twist in the weaves, displayed a predominantly beige, colour story with hints of pink and gold.
Aimed at the modern Indian woman who adores the aristocratic look, Soumitra offered silhouettes that ranged from “A” line, knee, and ankle length for bundgalas, tops and jackets. Saris appeared in the gorgeous weaves to appease the desires of the traditional dresser.

Saris were elegantly regal with tiny butties splashed all over or with luxurious resham borders showing hints of glitter. Stylish bundgalas with parallel pants, capris with kurtas sported tonal embroidery, flared mini kurti and a reversible waistcoat were ideal for semi formal wear.
Going in for more intense embellishments, Soumitra had silk motifs that cascaded down shoulders to waist for garments often teamed with wide flared pants. Mirror work gradually crept in for a long sleeved kurta and the final peach lehenga, choli and dupatta were ideal wedding attire.
For buyers who long for timeless fabrics with history and heritage attached to them, Soumitra Mondal’s collection “Woven Royalty” had all the right creations.




VAISHALI SHADANGULE’S “RABARI” COLLECTION WAS SET TO A FASHIONABLE TRIBAL BEAT AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2014

Inspired by the colourful life of the Rabari tribe, Vaishali Shadangule’s collection named “Rabari” after these colourful people at the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 revived all the magic, colour and style of the theme.

A collage of colours and patches formed an intricate pattern, while the clever mix of tradition and contemporary silhouettes added to the charm of the ensembles. From minis, maxis and ghagras, the look moved to lehengas and saris to add a fusion touch to the outfits.
Bringing a unique blend of linen, silk, cotton yarns and jacquard weaves from Varanasi; Vaishali added Jamdani from West Bengal for an amazing amalgamated offering.
Colours were a symphony of hues with red, orange, pink, yellow, blue and gold being the basis for surface texturing in linen, wool and gold thread.
Opening with a mid blue will-power lean kurta and scarf, Vaishali took the show into the rustic but modern zone. Flared sheer peplum blouse, asymmetric dress with intense embroidered yoke, choli with extended front panel and a boxy one in orange with a matching sari created the perfect mix of east meets west.

Crinkle skirts were a favourite with Vaishali who had them emerging from under saris worn with a variety of cholis. Moving into rich offerings for the festive occasions, Vaishali had red and gold as the chosen duo for asymmetric top with crinkle red lehenga and the rich sari with gorgeous blouse.
Vaishali Shadangule celebrated the festive season with her riot of colours, weaves and textures, when her “Rabari” collection created drama and style on the ramp.

Till next time....Keep it STYLISH By Nature !!
