Lina Tipnis' Androgyny speaks fashion language for celebration

Mar '09
Lina Tipnis gave luxury a new meaning for her Fall/Winter 2009 collection at Lakme Fashion Week. Her line of garments spelt out a story of glamorous and stylish sophistication as Lina celebrated the beautiful heritage of India with intricately woven fabrics and jewel toned embellishments that replicated ornaments like Raja Haars and chabbi ka guchha on to the garments.

Playing with a riot of colours that are a part of the Indian ethos, Lina blended vegetable dyed hues with brick, haldi, kumkum, green, red with earthy tones of mahogany black and ivory. Lina kept her silhouettes clean and elegant with dresses, blouses and Jodhpur trousers and added on interesting detailing like linear pleating with geometric motifs borrowed from the ikat weaves, ethnic prints and added on touches of 3D effects inspired by the Master painter Pablo Picasso's cubism.

The stunners in the show were the red trapeze tie up dress with ikat origami surface texturing which appeared in most of the garments. The elegant ivory sherwani with Jodhpur churidars with stylish epaulets and sleeve tabs, the dramatic 'U' back dress, the green corset dress with jewelled ikat waistband and the black vilandi haar 'V' back dress with satin tie-up ribbons.

Here was a collection that was meant for the woman of the 21st century who believes in allowing her garments to speak a fashion language of celebration for her.
