Agnimitra sees the world as it feels with 'The Black Lily' at LFW
Oct '08
The theme of the collection was very enlightening – "The Black Lily" by Agnimitra Paul for Spring/Summer 2009 at the Lakme Fashion Week which was a tribute to those who see the world as it feels.

Visualized in net, chiffon, georgette and linen the men's and women's wear lines were only in black and white and delicately embellished with bead and thread embroidery which featured the Braille script on the front of the dresses while the alphabets and numbers were on the lilies worked on the back.

The additional colours besides black and white were pink, green and red for the lily embroidery on women's wear. There were ruffled lace necklines for halters; one shoulder knee length dresses, shoulder drapes, a mix of the fabrics for skirts, maxis and slim tunics.

Men's wear was a line of casual trousers and cropped shirts in linen with black and white colour blocking which appeared on various parts of the garments and was highlighted with contrast machining.

The three saris in net were lavishly embroidered with the lilies appearing in clusters on khaki, green and black background. The idea of mixing fabrics like net and chiffon for the sari pallavs in different coloured panels was an interesting innovation.

The show stopper was Bollywood star, Neetu Chandra in a white georgette shimmering skirt with a black, orange, green net and chiffon sari with beautiful embellishments.

Agnimitra Paul is known to mix fashion with a strong social message and once again she scored with her Back Lily collection for the coming season.
