Half Full Curve, Saaksha And Kinni and Vineetrahul brought eastern and western glamour to open day four at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018

The second season of the half Full Curve collection was full of vibrant colours and styles at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018
Mumbai, 25th August 2018: The “half Full CURVE” label returned to Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018 for the second season with a great fashion offering for all sizes.
Created by Rixi Bhatia (of Quirkbox fame) and her sister Tinka, the label is aimed at the amply endowed women who love to flaunt their style. The label is a dream offering for real women, who are in assorted sizes and shapes.
This season the ‘Soul Stirring Sisters’ collection had an oriental inspiration which was Japanese textiles and costume motifs along with lots of floral designs that were splashed on the garments.
These in turn were interpreted in intricate, detailed, embroidery that had that old-world charm. Keeping the silhouettes very fluid to enhance the comfort factor, there were oodles of chic emphasis and some ethnic influences that will appeal to the modern Indian women.
For garments that are aimed at the universal buyer, the colour card moved smoothly from the universal favourites black and white, to shades of grey, deep red, navy, beige and blue, which were artistically highlighted with metallic tones.
The heavily beaded, floral placement embroidery on a flowing black maxi, the floor-length embroidered shrugs over striped patched black long dresses and the soft sheer floral embellished blouse worn with a beaded tank top and skirt gave a wide choice to various shapes.
Peplum blouses, sheer covers, gathered robes, cropped pants with tunics, luxuriously layered shifts, kimono blouses, poncho tops were a great variety of fashion for women who love the varying silhouettes to suit their feminine curves.
A variety in the wardrobe is a must for every woman, that will turn her into a fashion Diva and the “half Full CURVE” line by Rixi and Tinka Bhatia has all the right fashion credentials.
Inspired by Gujarat, Saaksha and Kinni presented a swirling kaleidoscope of fashion at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018
Who can resist the foot-tapping beat of Raas, which is the most pulsating dance of Gujarat? Inspired by the colours and styles of this dance form, Saaksha and Kinni unveiled their “Raas” collection, which was a riot of prints at Lakmé Fashion week Winter/Festive 2018.
It was a line of garments that will transport the wearer back to her roots as she revels in the beauty of the classic Bandhani, Patola and Ikat. The mélange of digital prints came alive on the jackets, while the metal and thread interweaving inspired by the cane weaving of the Kotwalia tribe of Gujarat was the cynosure of the garments.
Taking the audience on a wildly colourful journey of rustic fashion, reinterpreted to suit the contemporary dresser, the designing duo ensured that nostalgia was cleverly woven into the silhouettes that reflected an earthy flavour.
Deep hues with fun prints were evident for voluminous maxi skirts and tops, while the strappy gathered dresses completed the look. Some heavy knit over coats will be ideal for the coming season.
Drawstrings played an important role in the collection as they appeared on sleeves, sides and hemlines of garments and changed the shapes and silhouettes of the creations. Crushed and crinkled texturing was ideal for the kaftan, strappy tent dresses, capes and blouson blouses. Waist coats appeared with cropped tops, while the wide voluminous dolman sleeves had a marked folksy look. Pedal pushers and shirts were teamed with shredded patched coats for some more rustic flavour.
Giving the show some extra pep was the perky Bollywood actor Shruti Hasan, who took a sprightly walk on the ramp wearing a triple layered, crinkled, printed, floor-length creation quaintly belted at the waist.
Since the festivities in India will reach a crescendo very soon, Saaksha and Kinni’s “Raas” collection will hit all the right notes on the fashion scale.
Vineetrahul’s romantic fashion sonata dazzled on the ramp at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018
It was a collection that would sparkle when the sun sets, and the moonlight plays with romantic shadows during the winter evenings. VineetRahul’s “Chandni Raat” shimmered on the runway during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018 in its beautiful natural hues.
Keeping the inspiration intact, the designing duo played with white, grey and charcoal – all three just perfect for evening glamour or a Red-Carpet entry.
The fabrics told a delicate tale of hand woven Chanderi silk and fine linen that were turned into the swirling layered VineetRahul trademark silhouettes. The fuss-free construction of the garments further ensured that the look presented grandeur, flamboyance, as well as drama after dark.
Hand block printing added to surface ornamentation while intricate hand embroidery techniques like hand French knots, zardosi, appliqués and couching brought breath-taking opulence to the collection. Long tunics appeared over elegant skirts, while floor kissing coats with eye-catching embroidery were turned into luxe creations.
Opening the show with a relaxed men’s wear jacket with loose pants, the look for the stronger sex revolved around kimono style shirts, tunics, long length hoodies, trendy contemporary style sherwani with cropped trousers and kurta robes. Men’s wear matched the theme with the sun/moon print coat which was worn with the mandarin collar shirt in shades of grey and black.
Women’s wear was delicately designed with celestial embroidery, which appeared on the sheer robes that looked divine over knee-length dresses and the pretty pink shifts or the belted midis that projected a feminine vibe. For an ethnic luxe look, it was the lehenga, choli and red dupatta trio, which was just perfect for evening glamour. The black sharply-cut, notched printed coat over tunic and the red silk side tie-up tunic with the celestial print will be a great buy for women.
Looking utterly charming as the showstopper was Bollywood beauty Saiyami Kher, who gracefully, glided down in a white embroidered lehenga, grey choli and embroidered dupatta.
When the night of festivities reaches a crescendo, then the “Chandni Raat” collection by VineetRahul will light up the event.
