Abdul successfully experimented with a varied range of fabrics

Apr '08
In tones of brown and ivory Abdul Halder's Autumn/Winter 2008 collection at Lakme Fashion Week was one of controlled styling and silhouettes that remained close to the body with lengths which were long and short for both men's and women's wear.

Working with his favourite detailing - pleating and pin tucks he added on pigment surfaces with touches of glitter on strategic areas like shoulders, sleeves, yokes and neck.

The fabric story was rugged for both the sexes as jute linen, line, cymore, faux fur and poly silk formed the base for the sharply cut jackets, dresses, pants, skirts and tunics.

Opening the show with a flowing cape in mid brown worn over a quilted corset and skinny pants he moved onto low waist body hugging pants with fleecy sleeves.

Faux fur appeared on collars, shrugs, hem, and lapels along with skirts. A striking entry was a one button ladies tailcoat and tight pants.

Men's wear had long and short lean Jodhpur jackets with embroidered shoulders. Pin tucking and pleats gave an ornate look to most of the men's jackets while the one button sherwani was an interesting innovation.

Accessorized beautifully by leather bags with surface pigmentation of copper, hats, satin ties, hand made shoes, leather belts and brass buckles, Abdul assured of the complete look for his collection.

The show stopper on TV actor Sudhanshu Pandey was an ivory V neck jacket with gold embellishments on the shoulders.

Abdul Halder's collection for both sexes will undoubtedly get those paparazzi in motor mode when the wearer walks down the Red Carpet.
