Floating Images the new collection by Priyadarshini Rao; inspired by the impressionist painters such as Matisse, Cezanne and Monet.  One sees a wonderful play of water colours, they being intrinsic to the collection in recreating the mood on the French Riviera. Soft easy contours, fluid lines and vivid water colour prints are used generously.
Dresses, wide skirt style pants, blousons and floaty tunics with never ending slits are made in georgettes, chiffons, modal and Japanese Bamberg. Hand-made laces make an appearance on trousers and dresses.
The colour pallet for her collection dwells in beautiful summer shades of sorbet like coral, lime, aqua blues, vegetation greens, ecru and indigoes make up the line.
On the occasion, Priyadarshini Rao said, “Summer is the time to enjoy and experiment with new looks. The joy of wearing colours, flowy dresses is what makes summer wonderful.  With this collection I have tried to make summer enjoyable and relaxed.”
