Bridal wears get rave reviews at LFWNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:18 am ICT by admin
He said he wanted to create a couture line that was purely Indian.
Despite designers looking to experiment with Western silhouettes in the fashion week, most have created Indian traditional clothing for a domestic clientele.
Mukherjee said the designers needed to turn inwards for inspiration and stop ignoring domestic buyers as there was a strong emerging market in India.
His collection of ethnic Indian silhouettes included heavily embellished ensembles in rich shades of red, brown, rust, green and black with gold embroidery.
“We thought that we would do it like a crumbling royalty look. So there was a red stained velvet carpet and there were old chandeliers and the girls had a distressed feel about it. The entire show was actually inspired by the India-Pakistan partition and inspired by movies like ‘Sardari Begum’ and ‘Earth’. Colours were inspired by movie ‘Mirch Masala’. So the whole show had a very ethnic borderline feel to it,” Mukherjee said.
“I think every single outfit could be worn by somebody or the other depending on their body type. I don’t believe in creating fantasies on the runway, but real dreams that people can pursue,” he added.
Bollywood actress Rani Mukherjee, who attended the show dressed in a Sabyasachi creation, said: “I liked the collection very much. I always want to encourage him and I always want to be part of his shows.”
The fashion week has seen designers experimenting with strong colours rather than seasonal whites and muted pastels. (ANI)
