Day 2 show ended with Ritu kumar's aristocratic collection
Mar '08
The final show of the second day was kept for Ritu Kumar's presentation of her latest line.

The collection was created from blended fabrics which were accented with hints of mirror work and embroidery.

The show started with a group of aristocratic white sheath dresses with tonal embroideries and mirror work. The nostalgic “Gatsby” look of the 1920s was enhanced through long strings of pearls and contrasting bright red lips for the models.

A second line of straw coloured outfits with matt tonal threadwork appeared sophisticated and elegant through simple straight cut silhouettes and vivid fringed surfaces. The key piece was a short hooded caftan.

Oversized geometric abstract prints which came in charcoal on off-white and vice versa created a subtle appeal to elegant silhouettes.

The last line was a homage to the Caribbean islands. A vibrant tropical colour palette was used for big-size flower prints and embroideries. Opulent floral motifs were printed on dark as well as light coloured backgrounds.

Flared skirts were supported through abundance of tulles underneath for feminine swinging dresses. Big scarves with long flowy tassels added a Spanish aura to the collection.

Mirror work embroidery in the right amounts at prominent placements in the garment highlights the focal points of the collection and brings forth the strengths of the designer.

The collection from the house of Ritu Kumar speaks volumes about the designer's expertise and her experience and hence always presents a final word in fashion.
