'Char Bagh' line from Payal Singhal enchants all at LFW
Aug '13
Inspired by the “Char Bagh” or four gardens of Persia, the collection of the same name by Payal Singhal enchanted the audience at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013.

Using the beauty of “Char Bagh’s” architecture and nature, the designer translated the same with bold graphic prints to reflect geometry on the garments. The superb embroidery added to the beauty of the creations, while the colours matched the theme as blush pink and black were used extensively for the beautiful natural earthy fabrics that ranged from silk mul-mul to cotton and crepé. The silhouettes were utterly feminine, highlighting the theme and bringing in the fashionable contrast of nature and architecture.

The Indo-west line started with a silk mul colour blocked gown and then moved into a black printed crepé one-sleeve long kurta with churidars. The lehenga saris were graceful as they appeared with asymmetric hemline kurtas or with one sleeve cube printed blouses. Graphics printed pants appeared with squared printed cropped tops; while balloon sleeves blouse was perfect for a fitted pencil skirt and leggings.

Dashes of gold were given to kurtas, embroidered sherwani blouse got teamed with Jodhpuri pants, a solitary jumpsuit had gold work to complete the inspiration of the collection. The dramatic tiny black cutwork Koti added glamour to the kalidar kurta and the gold cutwork jacket when worn with an embroidered border tunic had a great fusion appeal. The lavishly crafted Patiala salwars with the purple silk kalidar kurta completed a very stylish and wearable collection.

Stopping the show was the lovely super model and now Bollywood star, Lisa Haydon who glided down the ramp in a blush lehenga, long sleeve choli and net dupatta.   

For creations that offer a unique direction in style and construction, Payal Singhal’s “Char Bagh” collection had an unconventional appeal.
