'Sexiness with a Halo' by Charu targets eco-fashion - WIFW Day 5
Mar '09
For Autumn/Winter 09 the collection Charu draws inspiration from the heroines of the past like Maharani Laxmi Bai, Chand Bibi and Kaurvaki who were quite simply: Women of impact.

The collection keeps true to the Charu's effect: 'Sexiness with a Halo'. Each dress in all its forms now comes in slinky, figure hugging variations, cut and stitched to couture perfection. Tailoring plays a key part in her collection. Each ensemble was a collage. The silhouettes are structured, simple, and very wearable.

Surface ornamentation has been done thoughtfully treating it with square lightweight sequins keeping comfort in mind.

Her colour story adds a ray of sunlight on a gloomy winter day. Tantalising colours play between the murky and flowery red, khaki, green and beige, earthy tones and merge into one another from tone to tone.

To inspire and revive the ever so strong heritage feel of ambi which has been artistically fused into vivid surface print extends a sensuous feel to the ensemble.

The fabric used are silk velore, woolen silk, chiffons, satin and birla excel (a 100% eco friendly fibre).

The collection was eclectic mix of creativity, styling, and modern silhouettes with ancient craftsmanship.
