Inspired by the life of the Budapest born Sher-Gil sisters, Indira and Amrita, Nikasha Tawadey’s ‘Indira Et Amrita’ showcased a great blend east and the west.
The silhouettes were fun and feisty recreating the 1920’s magic. The fabrics featured were hand woven brocades and Maheshwari and sumptuous silks. The color story was absolutely feminine with shades of pink that ranged from wine, rose to dead rose, biscuit and tobacco. The designer skillfully used geometric patterns, vintage lily of the valley, scallops and cherry blossom prints on the garments.
Striking pieces were brocade blouses with embellished seams and innovative silk jersey draped sari skirt with off shoulder draped top. Jumpsuits, bias cut double tiered sari inspired tops, cowl pants with string blouses, fringed kimonos and Sharara pants formed a great mix of fusion wear. The saris had fringes on the edges or on blouses reviving the charm of 20s era.
The all black printed floral line featured midi skirt with flapper top and 3D embellishments, a one-shoulder layered draped gown, and asymmetric layered top. The vivacious fuchsia line had brocade top, cowl dhoti pants, tulle sari and one-shoulder tasseled gown.
The outfits were complemented by accessories from Nikasha Pink accessories made with pearls, feathers, fringes, printed and embroidered fabrics.
