Manisha Lamba flaunts Archana Kochhar's 'Innocence'
27
Mar '09
With Bollywood Star Manisha Lamba opening her Fall/Winter 2009 collection titled “Innocence” at Lakme Fashion Week, Archana Kochhar set the mood for a glamorous line for the audience.

Inspired by Victorian architecture and Indian motifs, Archana created a fusion of lehengas, saris and gowns; with filigree and cutwork that highlighted the garments beautifully. The colour palette wove around five jewel tones of red, coral, electric blue, wine and emerald with a solitary gold sari making a stunning appearance. Georgette, net, silk were transformed into dreamlike creations.

The start of the show had a dramatic ghagra splashed with a profusion of roses which were lit with neon lights. Vida, Miss Afghanistan followed in diaphanous 60 metres tulle for filigree an embroidered lehenga. Combining gowns with saris, Archana gave the Indian woman a new fashion alternative.

Another striking ensemble was a red gown dazzling with Swarovski filigree, while a 330 metres gown left the audience breathless with wonder. 3D embroidery, rouched rosettes, rows of crystals and zari embellishments, pleats, rouched bodices, cascades of fabrics, 20 feet long trails on gowns, textured skirts all came together to add to the collection's glory which could make sensational Red Carpet options for celebrities.

Archana recreated the grandeur of 18th century glamour onto the ramp and left the audience amazed with her elaborate creations and the exquisite workmanship of her craftsmen.
