Rohit Bal creations takes you to the Tudor-era

Lights, camara, action and the man does not disappoint!

Rohit Bal once again lived up to his expectations as a creator of extraordinary scenarios on the ramp. His depiction of Ashta Dhatu was truly exhilarating and melted together fashion art and craft.

The models walking down the catwalk reminded one of knights and queens of the night wrapped in precious metallic armours. Men's jackets and coats displayed Napoleonic high collars and contrasting velvet details such as cuffs and trims.

Women's outfits showed carefully moulded corsage tops with attached wide voluminous skirts of varied length.

Rohit Bal translated his vision into finer details of silhouette such as exaggerated oversized sleeves constructed of many layers of beautiful colour coordinated organdy – a concept which was also used for short skirts and Elizabethan collars.

Some dresses showed transparent sleeves which were supported through light wired under constructions. Three dimensional interpretations of roses executed in various metallics run consistently through the collection.

The designer mixed metallic hues with contrasting velvet and crepes in order to create a dramatic appeal. The metallic shiny material was treated in many techniques ranging from origami folds to layered scales and irregular rushings thus creating dramatic light-and-shadow effects and giving the surfaces a life of their own.

The metallic colour palette included an amalgamation of antique gold, burnt copper, oxidized silver, molten iron, lead, hammered tin, mineral zinc and vivid mercury.

The extensive use of hand-crafted gota reflected antique traditional crafts of India in a contemporary manner.

Pure drama was unfolded in the final range through challenging experimental constructions of moulded metallic wires which were folded around the body in the form of smooth curvy linear see-through extensions – unwearable but definitely not unnoticeable.
