LFW runway enthralls with Swapnil's retro design affair

It was glamour from the elegant beautiful era of Hollywood’s 1950’s that inspired Swapnil Shinde to create his collection called “An Affair to Remember” for Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. 
 
Working around a gentle soft colour palette of beige, egg shell, jet black, mustard, berry and slate blue, Swapnil wove a web of glitzy mystery for his signature bold silhouettes. Keeping the heart motif as his key elements, the elaborate ensembles with voluminous silhouettes and tiny cinched waists had that Swapnil Shinde stamp of stunning drama as the models glided down the catwalk. 
 
The fabric base was ethnic as Swapnil played with traditional Maharashtrian Paithani weave with its antique gold and orange borders by adding geometric peacock prints. The embellishments also followed the geometric story with unique glass, PVC, organza and glass nylon to include glitter on the creations.
 
Giant multiple bows were the centre of attraction at the back, while solid colours like black, white, purple highlighted the Paithani weaves. Micro pleating was the perfect complement for the skirts accompanying peplum bustiers, white organza blouses and the dolman sleeve tops. 
 
Using Paithani borders for the skirts, Swapnil interspersed them with white to create an interesting palette. Skirts were mini, pencil or with drop waists while a pair of bubble shorts gave the traditional fabric a modern silhouette.
 
The final gowns with ornate bodices moulded from Paithani fabric with sheer tiered skirts, black corset gown with rouched bodice and layered skirts were drama at its best.The specially designed footwear added to the ultra-stylish appeal of the collection. 
 
For the lady who wants to make a memorable entry it has to be Swapnil Shinde’s collection “An Affair to Remember” that will turn it into a reality.
