Bonala Nautch - interesting mix of Urban & Rural fashion

For his label VJB, Vijay Bahara revealed an interesting collection called “Bonala Nautch”. The former word meant the headgear of the Northern Women while the latter was the Sanskrit for dance. Inspired by the Nautch girls of the north, the collection had glamorous tunics, dresses, jumpsuits, shrugs, skirts, churidar pants with block prints in ivory, beige, orange, pink, fuchsia, yellow and gold.

Fabrics were feminine as satin, mul and voile added a story of transparency and solids. Detailing and embellishments revolved around kantha and resham work, pipe work, cut daana work, cords, potli buttons, loops and gold sequined craft. It was a collection that brought together the glitz and glory of rural Indian with western chic.

Creating an interesting rustic line, there were batwing olive cotton jumpsuit, racer back anarkali tunic with gold kantha work, cape jacket, two tiered yellow tunic with tassels and a one shoulder jumpsuit with brocade polka dots, had the inspiration of the collection very cleverly woven into the silhouettes.

It was a feminine traditional line with very contemporary touches in perfect harmony which Vijay Balhara presented.
