New Delhi, Mar 12 (UNI) Myriad colours filled the platter of fashion lovers enjoying the show by Suneet Verma, who brought the Far East to India and the undeniable influence of colonisation on their lifestyle and clothing.
As the music played ''Little China Girl'', even the models looked just that in Suneet's collection rich in reds, black, green and golden. The collection had black net dresses with frills, floral prints and broad belts. All the dresses were beautifully matched with stockings and bangles as accessories.
Though it was the designer's love for the Orient, he, however, did not overlook the basic nuances in the dressing culture affected by colonization, the effect of which was drawn with tweed coats which were a signature style of France and Europe.
''It was all Orient in my show-Thailand, China, Burma. Yet, I had depicted the Spanish and English touch to the dresses in form of tail coats and accessories,'' said Suneet.
The collection has soft, drapy dresses with structured sleeves worn with masculine ties. Wide necked jackets with matching belts and sarong skirts, short cropped cavalry jackets with long evening dresses made the show well-liked.
The colour palette was of gold leaf green, deep maroon, teal, black and white and subtle use of red and orange.
