Payal & Rahul line portrays strength with fragile touch
Mar '13
To explore the boundaries between reality and illusion, Baroque-styled embroideries morph into transparent themes, adding a further dimension to signature illusionary effects. Chintz-inspired, Hand-Embroidered, Organic Khaadi Jackets in vibrant colors, Dori embellished Dresses influenced from the Jaali themes of Islamic architecture & finally, skillfully structured Jackets & Trousers, made from the finest Merino Wool and Double Weave Jacqards.

This collection portrays the strength of the Modern Women along with a touch of Fragility. It brings to life the Fiama Di Wills fiBe Young notion. Energetic colours bring forth youthfulness, while varied materials bring forward a trending, ever changing scenario. Embellishments and themes pour forth a free-spirited woman living life on her own footing. Rahul Mishra has truly animated the concept that is Be Young through his collection.

Opening my grandmothers trunk by Payal Pratap

A crossover collection between my grandmother's rich Indian vintage and the modern boho. This collection is the answer for the individualistic Indian woman of today, willing to experiment and adapt. A fluid collection using drapes in satins and velvets, the silhouettes with construction on the upper bodice and easy draped bottoms. Other elements used in the collection are rose prints lending romance to the collection and woven embroideries reminding of tapestries from yester years.

A bohemian vintage collection richly peppered with embroideries and detailing, represented in luminous hues of petrol, gold, purple, wine, ink blue and the ubiquitous black.

Dhoti style kurtas and dresses, velvet bandgalas with gathered pockets, bias peplum jackets with patchwork embroideries, layered silhouettes, cowled bottoms and wraps.

Soft leather cuddle shoes in vibrant colors and rock and roll chaand balls have been created to accessorise the collection.
