Mumbai, Aug 4 (IANS) The fashion of the retro era; a collection inspired by virtues of spirituality; and an ode to modern women - the second day of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 saw three designers Nimish Shah, Payal Khandwala and Roma Narsinghani presenting contrasting clothing lines on the runway together Saturday.

The show began with Shah’s collection, which was inspired by the retro era of the 1970s, but with a contemporary twist.

“My collection was basically inspired by the retro fashion of the 1970s. We used more of silk material and shawls. We took the old vintage reference and gave a contemporary twist to it with lot of detailing,” said Shah.

It was followed by a line by Khandwala, who incorporated the virtues of loyalty, self awareness and spirituality in her collection.

“My collections was inspired by the monks and the warriors. It’s very easy and comfortable wear with some draping and more constructive work,” Khandwala added.

The show came to an end with Narsinghani’s collection called “DreamCatcher”, which was an ode to the modern women. She extensively used shell buttons as surface embellishments on her creations.

“I have played a lot with buttons, and my collection is a mix of structure and drape together. The USP of my collections are its loose and comfortable collars,” said Narsinghani.

The LFW Winter/Festive 2012 kickstarted Friday, and will end Aug 7.
