The final day at DFW saw a statement of bohemian rhapsody and a celebration of styles from all over the world.
Preeti Chandra’s collection was big on floral and digital prints. Tribal influences surfaced with tassels, mirror work, and embroidery. Fabrics were chiffons and cottons and the colour palette was extensive. The designer accessorised her look with cravats and tribal headgears. <b1>
Inspired by Salman Rushdie’s New Enchantress of Florence, James Ferriera had his models draped in voluminous transparent tunics teamed with pants. The fabrics used were silk, satin and organza.
Priyadarshani Rao’s ensembles reflected an easy sensuality, while being rich on a palette of soft tones like pink and yellow. The collection moved on to a more summer-in-Miami mode, with long maxis, floral prints and chiffons dominating the look.
Style princess Malini Ramani's collection was inspired by a ‘Hippie who loves to travel to exotic locales of the World’.
Keeping true to the subject, her ensembles flirted with loose silhouettes and dominant graphic prints. The palette focused on vibrant bright colours like yellow, golden and cream. She used cotton viscose, satin and other fabrics highlighted with shimmer.
Anamika Khanna’s final show was divided into three colour stories – white, black and white and black. Khanna’s line had churidaar pants teamed with uniquely draped, voluminous kurtas. She detailed her outfits with patchwork and antique zardosi patterns.
