Shyamal & bhumika and Vivek Karunakaran presented diverse fashion trends for S/S 2010 at Lakme Fashion Week

It was return to days of ancient India where grandeur was the order of the day with a dramatic Indo-Mughal touch from royalty of India. Shyamal and Bhumika the talented designers from Ahmedabad have researched the grandeur of the past for traditional men's and women's trousseau wear that was dazzling and opulent.

The colour story was rich, starting with rose, purple, sea blue, lemon, beige and then the rich shades of burgundy, chocolate, orange and green to end with brown, midnight blue and stark black.

Splashed with embroidery that ranged from Marodi, Aari, zardozi, to chikan work and gota from the 17th century; the rich fabrics like brocades, silks, georgettes, velvet and hand-woven silks came alive for the purely Indian collection. A mix of different fabrics lent an unconventional touch to many of the garments. From the eternal sari to the swirling lehengas with tiny stitched cholis, the designing duo moved to sherwanis teamed with patkas and kurtas with oriental cummerbunds. The paneled and yoked creations told a colourful story of an era long gone by.

Detailing gave an interesting touch to the collection with hand made fabric buttons, embroidered motifs and multi-coloured piping. Bling was present, with a lavish sprinkling of sequins; for ornate velvet lehengas, shimmering dupattas, dhoti tunics, gorgeous saris, swirling paneled kurtas, stately sherwanis and regal kurtas which will appeal to buyers of festive wear.

For lovers of nostalgic fashion Shyamal and Bhumika's regal line will be the ideal choice for opulent occasion wear.

VIVEK KARUNAKARAN'S PRACTICAL SUMMER STYLES MADE A STRIKING IMPRESSION
From the land of the Nawabs where the regal beauty of garments dazzled, Vivek Karunakaran presented a selection of men's and women's wear for contemporary times which was ideal for the summer season with light airy dresses, tunics, shifts, shirts, trousers, jackets and capris.

The regal look of Jodhpuri trousers and breeches was teamed with structured shirts while comfortable dresses were all aimed at the jet setters of both sexes in cool printed voiles, yarn dyed linens, georgettes, a dash of silk and digitally printed chamois satins in tones of naturals like ecru and off white and then moved to white, beige, papaya, rust, crimson and chocolate.

Eye catchers in the collection were the harem dress with smocking in chamois satin, the natural linen dress with zipper detail at back, the box pleated linen dress with contrast top stitch, a very interesting trapeze dress with all over circle rouching, a dramatic strapless ribbon embellished cocktail dress, dhoti pants, a striking red silk wrap dress and a teal/ brown ombre dress.

Men's wear was pure summer wear, very practical and comfortable with discreet detailing for shirts, lean flat front trousers, a very colourful orange linen blazer with cropped pants, a casual fitted bundgala in red/black striped linen, rug print fitted voile shirt with epaulettes and detailed sleeves which completed the look for the coming season.

The show stopper on South Indian actress, Mamta Mohandas was a glamorous teal handcrafted dress which was a perfect end to a practical but stylish collection with an international touch from Vivek Karunakaran which will delight men and women from not only India but around the world.
