New Delhi, Oct 15 (UNI) It was a mystifying odyssey of myriad colours, romance and mystery when designer Sonal Dubal today presented his creations at a sparsely-attended show on day two of the five-day Delhi Fashion Week, being organised by the Fashion Foundation of India here.
An international female face opened the show, sashaying down the ramp in a creme cutwork embroidered dress with soft music and chirping of birds in the background.
The collection was named 'My Memory Garden'. ''The pond in my mind opens out into the verdent greens, where the scent of memory and the sensuous shadows vibrate with colours and forms of the universe. Its the magical time when spring gives birth to summer,'' the designer told UNI.
He added,''I have chosen to dip into this memory and fuse it with contemporary aesthetic.'' The collection brought out nostalgia about another era when people savoured nature and were not fazed out by industrialisation.
It had flowing kaftans, kimonos, Bhaku skirts, swing, shift and layered dresses and opaque capes that brought out the complex link between the past and the present.
Several known faces also walked the runway and many socialites were in attendance at the show.
Lithe models sauntered down the catwalk, reminding one of lazy afternoons spent with friends, hinting of the feminine, the soft, the subtle and the hidden. But bold colours like shades of the Java Plum (Jamun'), with fuchsia pink and the vibrant blues of Jacarandas welcomed one on the other hand.
There was a preponderance of green and pink in the colour palette of the designer.
Green print silk shirt dress, apple green print dress, apple green sequins bordered skirt, pink chanderi flower embroidered kurta, pink silk flower hand painted kaftan and fuchsia cutwork sequins embroidered jacket were seen in the creations.
