Gayatri creates 'Green World' awareness on WLFW Day 2
13
Mar '08
Day two opened with Gayatri Khanna reminding us of our moral responsibilities to save the earth. In a new and refreshing approach to resurrect the forests, she creates an awareness towards our green world.

Under the midnight sky, Gayatri chooses her colour palette of blacks, greys, browns, indigo, plum and as dawn descends on the forest she picks beiges and brighter greens and blues in her prints as well as in her dresses. The silhouettes were an assortment of lengths, fitted as well as baggy dresses.

Fabrics that transformed the ideas into creations were in a wide variety of silk chameuse, taffeta silk, stretch duchess satin, viscose jersey, silk velvet, silk organza and satin faced chiffon.

Gayatri's collection showcased fitted pants, wide leg jumpsuits, cape shaped dresses, floor length gowns, mini shift dresses, flared blouses as well as ankle length cropped skinny pants.

Her expression was evident in detailings like braiding, rushing, layering, dart placements and dramatically folding fabrics to create inventive layered collars at the same time not ignoring innovative sleeve details.

The embellishments were subtle in antique silver, dull gold metallics and in the form of leaf prints to relive the forest element in the clothes. The reptile prints almost brought alive the feeling of busy bodies of the forest in the middle of the night.

The designer has aptly put together scale like textures in silver, gold and copper. A mix of these at strategic placements in the garment as well on complete shifts were created in the same texture to enhance and focus on her craft.
