Sanchita closes Day Four of LFW with Wild West fashion

Aug '12
The colours of the Fire Bird comes to life in the multi-hued collection of Sanchita Ajjampur, presented by Blender’s Pride at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.

Cut-outs of hundreds of butterflies swayed from the ceiling, the back drop was the Mythical Garden with flora and fauna, which came to life with the back lights to start the show.
“The Mythical Garden” inspired Sanchita’s women’s wear with a 50’s and 60’s touch. Fabrics were a surrealistic collection of neoprene Lurex, jacquards, gold wash lace, georgettes, sheer chiffons and crepes. The colours created the magical impact with lavender, green, blush, nude and lemon along with metallic tones.  
Keeping the silhouettes dramatic but practical, Sanchita offered kimono shapes, cinched waists, asymmetric reinvented poodle skirts, trapeze, drop waist and flapper dresses. Opening the show with her specialty  - the swimwear, Sanchita displayed four versions  -  a rhinestone bikini, a trikini, mailot and crystal one-shoulder swimsuit. Soon the designer brought in shimmering tiered gowns, bell sleeved sheaths, drop waist dresses with innovative stone embroidery and reflective black gold plastics for floppy frocks.  
Detailing came in the form of lots of plaited and knotted tapes, cord and soft thread layers to create minis and maxis. The decorative feather shapes and punch fabrics added a shredded or lacy look to the cute dresses. For after dark glamour there were beige loose weave gown with glittering neck and waist interest and textured long tops over gleaming skirts. Completing the look, Sanchita added clutches, jewellery, shimmering wedges for footwear and headgear that matched with the eras. 
For men’s wear, the inspiration was quirky – “Bull Dogging Bill Pickett goes Bollywood” as she revived the Wild West era using native American graphic touches and layering of fabrics.  
Bomber jackets, wide legged cropped and jogger’s pants, deconstructed tailored suits were in deep tones of apricot, plum, black, currant, rhubarb, honey, berry and cool blue. Fabrics took an interesting turn with Lurex, matte parachute, nylon, suede, Nubuck leather, molleton jersey, silk, cotton, muslin, twills and cotton jerseys making a definite style statement.
Lurex hoodies, Bermudas, capris, Wild West motif embroidery for shirts and prints of American graphics came alive on soft jackets, pants and accessories. The crimped cottons were cool comfort wear, while the net over knit blouson, the soft leather suit and the red embroidered jacket gave new fashion directions to the male dresser.
For the accessories, Sanchita chose totes, bandana, moccasins, printed canvas and spotted cow leather for sandals and belts to show the Wild West aura in the collection.
It was a colourful, very edgy and interesting collection for both sexes that Blender’s Pride presented by Sanchita Ajjampur, which will cause a fashionable stir during the coming season.
