'Black Velvet' boldly hits a fashion ramp in India
Aug '12
Sapna Bhavnani and Sukriti Grover displayed unconventional fashion directions at Usha Talent Box.

Sofake intrigues and shocks all with its new collection titled, ‘Black Velvet’. A take on a controversial topic –that of fairness creams, the designers Sapna Bhavani and Sukriti Grover made a strong and bold statement, ‘Black is beautiful so embrace it’.

The all black collection comprised intriguing black on black prints incorporated on structured forms. Power shoulder jumpsuits and vixen dresses were some of the pieces which helped project the mood of the collection - mysterious, daring, beautiful and dangerous.

Fabrics such as silk, velvet and jacquard helped build the sleek and structured bodies, accentuated by simple metal detailing such as eyelets and cut outs.

Use of see-through fabric helped to add a feminine touch to the range while a cape-like top injected an experimental spark.

One of the most striking features of the collection was its distinct blend of Victorian prints with Asian concepts such as the Obe-belt.

Edgy, feisty and yet sophisticated this collection by Sapna Bhavnani and Sukriti Grover is for a diva who likes to make a statement.
