Payal hit the Lakme ramp with glamour & grandure

Get set all lovers of retro fashion. Payal Singhal had it all when it came to the glamour and flamboyance of the Roaring Twenties for her Autumn/Winter 2008 collection at the Lakme Fashion Week.

It was cocktail time all the way as models glided down the ramp in the most tantalizing dresses that will appeal to ladies whose calendars are filled with after eight soirées.

Inspired by the French artist, designer and illustrator, Erte; the flapper look of the fun era of that time was recreated in the 26 glittering mini dresses each named after a pretty woman.

The collection was a rich mix of fabrics like gold Lurex, crepe, georgette, chiffon, silk, jacquard, for creatively designed dresses with a slight modern twist.

The colours were gorgeous with gold in the forefront and then moved onto white, black, cobalt blue and silver- hues that set the mood for those cocktail hours.

Embroidery practically covered the dresses while the silhouettes were kept very simple and short. But drapes played a major role as the fabrics circled the body from various sides.

The opening dress a strapless gold Lurex front cross over dhoti drape was followed by a black taffeta dress with a side slit worn with gold lace shorts, a floral jacquard tiered strappy mini, a one shoulder dhoti dress, a bubble with side slits and a blouson dress. Each dress was a glitzy creation which will make the wearer the cynosure of all eyes.

Payal Singhal's jazzy flapper line of cocktails dresses will be perfect additions for women during Autumn/Winter 2008 as they get ready for the festive season.
