Priyadarshini displays globe trotters collection at LFW
Aug '13
Inspired by the “CaravanSerai” or Fondouk in Turkish for roadside inn, Priyadarshini Rao’s very international collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013 will be a blessing for the globetrotting fashionistas.

With the colourful theme, the garments revealed a vibrant mix of cultures through textiles, hues and silhouettes. Looking at strong Persian, Afghan and Indian influences, Priyadarshini’s designs combined the past with modern western shapes. Flouncy blousons, swirling shirts, maxis with attitude, wide-hemmed pants, superbly finished achkans and well-constructed jackets, made a strong fashionable impact on the ramp.

Hand block-printed mulls, beautifully embroidered silks and brocades played a stylish symphony with georgettes and Chanderis, to present an antique finished fashion statement that was sensuous and feminine.

It was a pleasurable journey of colours, prints, embroidery and separates that came together in such perfect harmony that they caused a sensation on the ramp. The colours were kaleidoscopic, with indigo making a firm impact. Tunics, long lean maxis, empire line and panelled piped dresses, wide pants, short blouses, Raja coats over shararas and flared asymmetric tunics perfectly reflected the inspiration in the silhouettes and construction.

Saris followed the multi colour print theme, but were worn with blouses or cute baby doll tunics. Floral print tail-coat covers over gathered minis added a hint of stylish semi-formal wear.

Minute detailing like side-slit pockets for layered sheer pants, lace edged hemlines and colourful scarves with giant fabric tassels were prominent on the catwalk.

Priyadarshini’s collection could only be described as totally fluid, feminine and absolutely fragile with such a high quotient of mix and match possibilities that will thrill compulsive shoppers.

With the “CaravanSerai” collection by Priyadarshini Rao as part of the fashionable traveller’s luggage, it will be a journey of style, glamour, comfort and ease, no matter where the routes go.
