Lakme Fashion Week Day 1 on March 30, 2016, saw some extravagant collections. Working around an inspiration of a futuristic collection in another dimension, Yogesh Chaudhary’s ‘Surendri’ label presented the ‘Dot’ story at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016. It was a glamorous cosmic journey through three galaxies as constellations, moon surfaces, geometry and thermal radiation patterns, created an amazing mix of textures, silhouettes and innovative traditions.
The creations featured space-age inspired pleated dress, shirt kurta with open tie-up back with grey long skirt and long line shirts. There was a gorgeous mélange of draped saris, funky skirts, easy palazzos and floppy blouses that sparkled with circular motifs with exquisite foiling embroidery technique, which revealed a great blend of the East and West.
Jumpsuits dazzled, while coat-dress/pants, one-shoulder long tops with flowing pants, grey moulded gowns with cutouts and the long sleeve grey sheath were stunners. The volume appeared for the wide culottes, the waist cinched silver dress, cross drape palazzos, and floor-length skirts.
Inspired by the dazzling array of the night sky, Yogesh had stunning ethnic wear that glittered with sequins and zari work for lehengas, asymmetric blouses and twinkling dupattas.
There was a marked deconstructed Grecian draped look for many of the creations while the sculpted shoulders and futuristic fringing added to the drama of the space inspired line. Mechanised knits and Indian shapes further enhanced the creations as they moved gracefully down the ramp on perfectly styled models.
The 18-piece ‘Dot’ collection was a perfect head-to-toe presentation from Yogesh Chaudhary’s ‘Surendri’ label.
