This spring, it was all about bright colours on Day 1 of the Bangalore Fashion Week and motifs of nature stood out from the rest. While many collections played around with the flowers, the breeze and shades of water, many designers choose to tread carefully on the bold path with bright choice of colours.
Playing around with barely four colours, this mother-daughter duo from Hyderabad surely left a lasting impact.
Showcasing in Bangalore for the first time, they collection had a slow start on the ramp, but interestingly lit up faces mid-way through the show. Draping shades of yellow, blue and red, their clothes seemed to have just been dipped in these colours and took on a classy shape. Their collection was inspired by birds of tropical paradises. Their classy chic design spoke volumes about mixed cultures.
Experimenting with various textures and fabrics, their bold colours like that of macaw and canary birds added some life to the show. The clothes had a good blend of western cuts and Indian designs and the models carried off the gowns, sarees and dresses with aplomb. “It is a relaxed collection where colour take the first base along with the tints of Indian traditional embroideries of chikankari and shishakari. All colours seem to be fighting on each garment for priority. Our prime choices of colour was canary, hyacinth, poppy and whites, shades of yellow, blue and red that speak about the warmth of summer,” said Leela about her collection. Although quite wearable, the collection is a splash of colour that sets the bold attitude of the designers apart from the rest.
Meanwhile, their fabrics too lived up to expectations as they played around with chiffon, net, satin and Indian weaved traditional Kota. At their stall however, many seemed to stop by because of the eye catching colours and wearable outfits, however, it was questionable if such lively use of colour will please Bangalore fashionistas.
