It was Shimmer and Shine from Amrita Thakur at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012. Amrita Thakur titled her collection “Salma Sitara” meaning touches of shimmer and shine for the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 season.
There was a delicate beauty reflected in the collection as traditional and contemporary motifs danced all over the gorgeous outfits on a colourful background. The luxurious fabrics glittered under the ramp lights as the beautiful creations for the festive season made an impact. Opening the show with a chiffon kurta and faresha pitta embroidered bodice, Amrita showed more creations in net, chiffon and organza in shades of green, rust, mustard, yellow, peach, red, orange, Sindoor and mehendi green. The delicate net saris had cut Dana and zari work, while the kalidar kurtas were worn over net slips. The final creation was a riot of colours as a mehendi organza jacket was teamed with a bright pink kurta and a striking dupatta.
The “Salma Sitara” collection with its delicate embellishments and beautiful fabrics from Amrita Thakur will definitely thrill buyers of festive wear.
