Press Note: Sannam Chopra & Sandhya Gard at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012
Mumbai, Saturday, August 4, 2012: Chopra plays with a unique concept for her collection titled ‘Medieval Pop’ which focused on the unusual concept involving a story and set in the medieval times, when men would joust as a way to garner honour.
Amidst the crowd, there lies a beautiful woman, somewhat amused and intrigued she envisions herself in their attire with an added feminine touch.
The range showcased a number of accessories such as bags, necklaces, cuffs and hair accessories.
Set in regal Swarovski crystals along with imposing large stones the pieces were tastefully bold and large, accentuated by gold chords as well as silver tassels.
Another notable feature of the collection was the extensive use of coloured leather pieces reminiscent of protection gear, unlike her previous collections which relied heavily on metal work.
The range was feminine, sparkly as well as structured with geometrical shapes, adding a controlled edge in colours such as pink, green, turquoise, black and flesh tones.
Adding a hint of variation some pieces even sported butterflies, bows and leaves. All about strong forms, accentuated by feminine concepts this collection by Sannam Chopra is sure to be a favourite for any cocktail party goer.
Sandhya Garg Presented a Timeless Collection at Usha Talent Box
Inspired by the 1920’s art deco movement, Sandhya Garg’s debut collection was simply electrifying.
Using fabrics such as georgette, chiffon, lace and other easy and feminine materials, the designer worked more on the fine detailing of each piece, treating them like a work of art in their own right.
Youthful, Sandhya Garg’s collection stuck to ongoing trends such as colour blocking and making use of solid pops of colour such as blue, orange, yellow, purple as well as black and grey, which made this range bordering on experimental and yet commercially viable.
The collection comprised blouses, pants, shirts, skirts as well as dresses with the silhouettes being soft yet structured, crisp and clean.
With a concept of 3D embroidery, sequins, feathers, studs as well as specially created metal embellishments in gold and silver, were coupled with leather cutwork detailing, which added a unique trendy touch.
Preppy-chic with a glam industrial look this collection is sure to fly off the racks.
