Inspired by a colorful fairytale and the concept of Japanese Waba-Sabi, Pratima Pandey presented a collection lay emphasis on natural fabrics and indigenous embroidery techniques. From intricate floral embroidery to floor length tunics, models were drenched in bold pastel shades of olive, red, dark blue and gold. Brocade bodices were matched with crinkled lehengas that were tied to the waist with a large bow. Block-printed harem pants were worn with straight-fit kurtas as a lot of silk was used to drape shift robes and unstructured pleated tunics. Messenger bags in lightweight cotton, followed by glossy patent ballerinas, were the perfect accessory duo for each and every fashion look. Loosely fitted jumpsuits were accessorized with fringed and tasseled scarves, as bell-shaped angrakhas were whipstiched to perfection. High-slit wrap-up coats were accompanied buy dainty U-shaped necklines and sheer belts. Scooping into a delicate plunge, raw silk anarkali suits were crafted from rich Chanderi silk and buttoned all along the bodice.
