Inspired from Jardin Majorelle in Morocco, designer Krishna Mehta showcased her beautifully crafted couture collection “The Gold and the Ganges”.
Silhouettes were a contemporary ode to traditional shapes. Hand woven tanchois, jangla and Jamawar silks in shades of vibrant pink, yellow and soft green and pastel tones were festooned with gotta and zari work. 3D flowers, hand painted panels, detailed tassels, Shibori and tie-n-dye techniques were also used which took the outfits on another level of elegance.
The designer offered varied options like belted mandarin collar blouses, flared cropped shirt-collar tops, peplum blouse with an attached waistcoat, drop crotch pants, draped dhoti salwars, cowl pants with kurta or mini kurtis. Pants were teamed with overlapping peplum blouses and jackets and ponchos were worn over floor length kurtas.
A red bustier teamed with a lehenga and dupatta with ornate embellishments made a striking statement.
