Nitin Bal Chauhan offers a riot of colours in 'Waiting for Yellow'
Mar '08
Nitin Bal Chauhan named his collection for fall 08 “Waiting for Yellow”.

His current programme was meant to be a milestone contribution to Indian indigenous arts and crafts from Himachal Pradesh.

The designer used plain hand woven woollen fabrics in vital colours which seemed to have been taken directly from the classic colour wheel: primary yellow, red and blue was combined with bright fuchsia, bold purple and emerald green and black.

The range consisted of feminine dresses, jacket and skirt coordinates and fitted coats.

The silhouettes were decorated through cute playful details such as pleated frills around hemlines, tiny peplums, oversized scallops, contrasting pipings and bindings and curvy Peter Pan collars.

Some ensembles showed attractive slit detailings which were underlayed with colour contrasting fabrics. This had a captivating visual effect when the models walked the ramp.

The cavalry like front openings added a nostalgic appeal to the short and structured jackets which were coordinated with innovatively cut jodhpurs in complementary contrasting colours.

All outfits were completed with romantic woollen mulitcoloured hats quite similar to those worn in the 18 century by ladies during horse riding.

With this latest vibrantly coloured and hand crafted collection, Nitin Bal Chauhan made not only an ethical but also an ethnic statement for coming autumn '08.
