Chaitanya & Preeti bring glamour on catwalk at LFW – Day 5

Sep '09
Chaitanya Rao and Preeti Chandra brought glamour on the Catwalk at lakme fashion week spring summer 2010.

In a collection that had touches of geometric and graphic lines, that matched the prints of the designs by Chaitanya Rao for Spring/Summer 2010 at Lakme Fashion Week, the designer made a perfect offering for those hot summer days for men and women.

With a western silhouette for his garments, Chaitanya opened the show with a cutwork lace hem for a lovely dress and followed it with an ecru textured pair of pants with a very pretty bolero. A tiny pleated purple mini skirt will make a great addition to a teen's wardrobe; while for something a little more sophisticated an off shoulder chiffon kimono sleeve cover will appeal to women who go for the leisurely look. Cowl pants, a yellow chiffon drop waist dress and an elegant satin sari draped dress were some of the other creations.

The other striking entries were an orange and grey shaded organza blouse and a grey organza coat sprinkled with 3D daisies. The colour story was pastel with large sunflower prints and geometrics which appeared in different colours and forms.

Men's wear was very sparse – leather finished suits with zipper accents or suits in grey and lilac geometric print in conventional shapes. Fabrics were summery with linen, chiffon, satin, and georgette. The finale was a fluid yellow and black abstract flower crepe dress and an organza one shoulder gown that completed the cool casual to formal collection. For Spring/Summer 2010 with a collection so feminine it was apparent that style and design came together perfectly from the studio of Chaitanya Rao.

When the mercury soars upward and the days are sultry, cool feminine clothes designed by Preeti Chandra for Spring/Summer 2010 at Lakmé Fashion Week are the perfect choice for women around the globe. Her line of jackets, lean pants, capris and lots of feminine jumpers and the very interesting dhoti dress were the highlight of the show.

From shades of white, taupe, beige and neon pink the collection moved to ombre tones in blue and the delicate floral prints which were truly dream like in appearance. From floaty sheer dresses to long elegant gowns, the collection was a vision of feminine beauty. Using crystals lavishly, but in a clever and interesting manner, Preeti allowed the garments to sparkle on the ramp in a discreet form. Fabrics matched the theme of the collection as shiffali or eyelet fabrics, twill georgette; silk, chanderi and sequined georgette were draped and embellished into a dress and gown collection.

The highlights were the crystal gown with bell sleeves in georgette, the new Bianca maxi, the lovely ombre silk sari dress, the earthy candle tunic with popular crystal embroidery on the hem, the long tunic with a multi studded jacket and the stunning pleated creation which were all ideal spring women's wear that had the right touches of style, design and structure to delight the buyers. When it comes to some interesting innovative designs, then the Preeti Chandra line of creations for the fairer sex will be a great seller for the coming season.
