Swapnil Shinde created a wardrobe to lure stylish women

His inspiration was Reality Escapes as Swapnil Shinde took the audience on a magical journey of stylish women's clothing that moved away from the norms of fashion and into uncharted territory for Autumn/Winter 2008 at Lakme Fashion Week. Using the sari drape as the base, Swapnil used it creatively on the dresses to present beautiful fluid outfits.

To achieve this his fabric choice had to be the softest of silk, brocade, chiffon, jute, silk Lycra in beautiful colours like burnt blue, ivory, egg shell, rose, red and sand along with the most dramatic of all – jet black.

The long and short jackets, slim pants, gowns, minis and dresses had the kalis of the sari gracefully flowing down the garments or draped on the shoulder and glistening with crystals.

The opening deep blue gown in chiffon with black floral appliqué down the front set the pace for the Red carpet collection.

Textured ruffled minis, brown shredded chiffon gown, a satin jute bubble mini, an off white rouched draped gown, the brown jute printed embroidered coat with puff sleeves and matching dress and the panelled brown embroidered dress were part of a very feminine look that Swapnil aimed to achieve.

The final collection of black and white princess line appliquéd dresses and gowns in net and chiffon were the ultimate offering for style divas.

Some of the garments had a hint of the flapper look for the Twenties at one end and the ultra glam styling of the 50s at the other.

The footwear was very unusual – beaded high heel shoes and platform styles. The slinky red gown with an interesting folded skirt on TV star Shweta Salve was a perfect end to a glamorous show.

Swapnil Shinde created a very realistic line of ensembles embodied with just the right touches of style and drama for the coming season.
