Drashta presents a glittering line for women of 21st century

31
Mar '08
Drashta Sarvaiya gave a new meaning to power dressing for women when she presented a glittering feminine line for Autumn/Winter 2008 at Lakme Fashion Week.

The collection of stylish cocktail ensembles was an amazing range of tunics, jackets, dresses, coats all teamed with stirruped leggings in almost matching colours to the outfits.

The colour palette moved from all the deep tones of green, purple, cobalt blue, ochre, copper and black in fabrics that ranged from rice knit jersey, satin, shot chiffon and satin Lycra.

Drashta's inspiration was the Madonaaesque years bringing in the glamour of the 80s look.

Adding the quilted bra as an important accessory under some of the garments or as the focal point of the ensembles; Drashta worked the look into strappy pinafores, and under sheer tops.

Drapes were used lavishly for one shoulder togas in silk or in shaded metallic fabrics. The sleeves were almost petal like in varying sizes, while a shimmering Lurex kimono sleeved poncho made dramatic evening wear.

Some of the eye catchers were a pear shaped pleated dress, some striking shaded silk tunics with antique beading, and the many draped minis with rouching and pin tucks.

There was colour, there was drama and as Drashta Sarvaiya stated that it was her Confession for a new kind of Haute dressing for the women of the 21st century.
