Fabrics played a creative role as georgettes, wrinkled crepe, chiffon and cotton silk came together for Atithi Gupta’s Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 collection.
Detailing was at centre stage as fine pleating for tops, jumpsuits and dresses floated down the ramp.
The colours were firm on blue, black, grey and purple. Keeping the dress length to short, Atithi showed a smocked waist mini with lace bodice, then added on a
loose thread bolero and pin tucked long pants.
When it came to detailing, lace insets appeared regularly for necklines, shoulders and at different parts of the outfits. The purple drop shoulder creation with lace inset, the ombré purple draped bodice dress with silver Lurex bolero and the grey sari drape chiffon mini glided down the ramp. Atithi proved her skills with draping, pleating, pin tucks and mixed them cleverly with lace and embroidery.
Stopping the show was Huma Qureshi who made her Bollywood debut in ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ wearing a draped black lace dress and a gold bolero. From day to evening wear, the silhouettes were classic yet feminine with a mixed colour story of many hues from Atithi Gupta.
