Sabyasachi's colour fantasy for Winter/Festive
Aug '11
Lots of colour with the distinct touches from the Maestro of Style and Design from Kolkata along with four dozen models of different shapes, ages and sizes on the ramp can turn the show into a mind blowing experience for the audience.

That is how the third day of Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2011 ended as Sabyasachi Mukherjee presented men, women and children on the ramp in an ingenious manner, to confirm his fashionable position on the charts as the designer who can dress anybody, in any size or sex in stylish creations.

Bringing the models in colour coordinated groups – quite an interesting concept – Sabyasachi showed garments that moved in perfect harmony in style, silhouette and form.

Presenting the look of the North West Frontier Province and the styles favoured by the girls in Patiala, Sabyasachi added touches of Kathak and Kathakali for the silhouettes and the music and presentation. Using khadi, organza, net, silk and velvet and the beautiful thread work from Kashmir with Zardozi in shimmering silver with floral designs but restrained Bling; the show was an utterly satisfying experience of ethnic fashion that can be applauded anywhere in the world.

Twenty three entries comprising groups of models wearing similar outfits in different colour blocking, gave the viewers a unique choreography experience.

Black, brown, khaki, red, orange, black, white, the Sunderban floral prints, wide silhouettes, immaculate tailoring along with simple styles which could truly be considered basic, were so impressive, that they made an everlasting impression on the applauding audience.

To set the tempo of the show, Dr Mitul Sengupta, the famed Kathak Dancer dazzled the invitees with her expert foot work and then to the beat of her Kathak chants and the accompanying Rythmosaic band; the models made their restrained slow glide on the ramp.

The famed Kashmir embroidery appeared on boleros, waistcoats, and edges of swirling kurtas, bundis, tunics, cholis, cropped tops, sherwanis, and dupattas. The wide Patiala salwars, the elephant pants, the flowing palazzos and the cowled pants matched perfectly with the smocks, tunics, kurtas, and jackets.

The saris with ornate borders at times split into velvet and net with shimmering edges were teamed with long sleeved embroidered cholis. The gleaming velvet smocks with embellished bodices and Patiala salwars, the cute scaled down versions of the same for the young boys and girls, ensured that the collection will be a sure fire seller anywhere around the globe. Detailing was restricted to rows of tiny buttons down the front and the occasional Sunderban floral print appeared on men's churidars, dupattas or saris leaving the majority of the show in solid monotones.

For sheer drama style and immense commercial viability in sales the 48 creations by Sabyasachi Mukherjee left the audience breathless and will thrill retailers as they will fly off the racks within minutes.
