Innovative pleating highlight of Arshiya collection

Oct '08
Arshiya Fakih Eappen for her Araiya label presented a collection titled "The Journey of a Doll into Space" – a line of garments for Spring/Summer 2009 at Lakme Fashion Week, which were glittering cocktail minis in fabrics and drapes that were cleverly worked into the construction.

Working around an origami form of geometric and Grecian drapes the silhouettes were chic and almost futuristic with the embellishments playing and important role. Appliqués and colours like corn yellow, pink blush, moss green, blue and champagne were blended with pearl white, silver and dull gold for satin, glass nylon, and Lurex.

The detailing was concentrated on innovative pleating which appeared on the body of the garments with the pleats often reversed in another colour. Leather was used sparingly for slim patch work and texturing was striking on the yokes in 3D or embossed forms.

Starting with a satin dress with hexagon patchwork embroidery, Arshiya added an origami flap dress with pink embossed satin then another with a leather patch work effect and then onto dresses with silver and gold work. The silhouettes were very short and figure hugging for shifts or princess line dresses.

The show stoppers were popular Bollywood stars Raima Sen in a printed satin gown with black stone embroidery and Kunal Khemu in a silver Lurex suit with cream silk shirt.

Arshiya's space and zodiac inspired collection was just ideal for cocktail evenings and clubbing right through the coming season and was aimed at the very trendy young fashionista who wants to keep in step with the style trends.
