Aneeth & Chinar's Gaba gathers garlands of appreciation

Apr '08
The colour story was just black and white or kala-safed as designers Aneeth Arora and Chinar Farooqui of the GABA label stated.

For their Autumn/Winter 2008 collection for Lakme Fashion Week it was a line of the most beautiful traditional garments made from fabrics like Chanderi, Maheswari and Bengal textiles and the work of tie dye craftsmen from Kutch.

The trims were made by the women from villages near Delhi. The look was a great blend of Indo-western styling with rustic touches.

The GABA collection started with layered smock tops and rouched capris, followed by a variety of tunics, blouses, shirts, kurtas, flared trapeze dresses teamed with interesting balloon capris, cropped pants, and shirt tunics with layered puffed sleeves, rouched knee length trousers.

For the feet there were either black or white crochet booties to complete the look.

The fabric treatment was very interesting with crushing, crinkling, smocking adding to the use of multiple patterns, like checks and stripes which came together with solids to layer the garments into comfortable casual wear in cottons.

Panelling was an important part of the collection with multi patterns used for the flaring godets of the short dresses. It was a collection that highlighted the beauty of the Indian fabrics and crafts that India is so well known for.

GABA had the perfect blend of Indian crafts, fabrics and styling to appeal to a wide audience who appreciates the beauty of traditional work.
