Fluidity in muted colours can be seen in Kiran Ghosh collection

Mar '08
Soft fluid shapes, muted colours, feminine detailing - it was Kiran Uttam Ghosh at her creative best for her Autumn/Winter 2008 collection at Lakme Fashion Week.

With a title that sounded a little unconventional – An Eye For I – the theme was beautifully translated on the ramp in garments that featured the dual directions that style and fashion can take with a little creative thought.

Colours favoured the autumn palette with chutney, mustard, lavender, emerald, black, brown, aubergine, khaki, indigo, bronze, teal, salt, pepper and blackberry for garments that had a distinct Greco-Roman feel with drapes and cowls caressing the body.

The fabric range was varied but at all times very fluid and soft with silk, tweed, jacquard, satin, linen, georgette, jersey combined with ribbed knit to prove the diverse paths that fashion can take with ease.

The embellishments moved from beautiful prints to Shibori, seaweed and Parsi floral embroidery; while detailing was very fine with pin tucks, pleating, crushed fabrics and deconstructed silhouettes.

Bringing a western touch for the angarkha, while turning the trench into a kurta, Kiran added on salwar pants, racer back dresses, seamed pants, embroidered sari style yoke tunics and jodhpurs to fuse them into stylish formal wear.

The jackets were delicately embroidered, while the kaftans were worn over tunics and pleated pants. Layering was achieved with such grace it made the garments almost ethereal in nature.
