An Edwardian summer creates fresh mood
Oct '12
Geisha Designs is an India based luxury lifestyle brand that has translated the ancient yet very modern world of today into garments. Her friends are people of all moods: modern, traditional, spiffy dames, mad hatters and more. They have got gifts and glitter, cherries and champagne. They are a riot.
This is the mood of the SS’13 line by Shalini and Paras of Geisha Designs. The collection displayed at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW).  Set in an Edwardian Era with influences of other cultures to create a fresh look. 
The collection is all about contemporary silhouettes coupled with traditional techniques on luxurious rich fabrics and encapsulates the quaint theatricals of the art, heritage and mystique of Victorian life. Come join us as we create, inspire and invite you into the romantic world of Geisha Designs.
Collection 1: It takes its inspiration from nomadic weaving and beading techniques combined with the fluid drapes of soft silk tuille, Chantilly laces and thin luxurious chiffons. The palette plays with the contrast of earthy oak and tea stain. Patent leather accessories add a modern charm to this look.
Collection 2: It adds elements from Tea gowns, generally loose-fitting and elaborately trimmed. This look gives full vent to the taste for theatricality with long duster coats, pin stripe suit sets, and capes. The colours are of corals set in pearls and gold. Fabrics are modern foiled jerseys, soft nets, micros, silk tuilles, and soft georgettes. The embroideries have an old world charm while the silhouettes are modern and practical.
Collection 3: This collection takes its influence from the Edwardian period. Art Nouveau, with its flowing, organic forms and rich gold embroidery on nets, tuilles and lace, stands for everything that is feminine, mature, sophisticated and well bred. These are made in gauzy tea stained fabrics and decorated with gold delicate lace like embroidery. The fabric under the lace is cut away, sometimes revealing the wearer’s skin to create lingerie dresses. Circular skirts, mermaid skirts, capes, and sumptuous lace stoles complete the look.
The hair is open and messy, but styling retains a romantic appearance creating the Pompadour look. Lips are the focus and are painted with multi-tonal colours, which allude to the romance of a rose bud.
