Lakme Fashion Week - Winter Festive - Atithi Gupta

Ughhh! Can you believe this? A bout of unexpected illness kept me off all the action at the Lakme Fashion Week. I even missed two fabulous shows on the final day of the fashion week, and have to now contend with catching up on all the fabulous fashion via the videos uploaded on youtube. Sigh.

But all is not lost. There has been some great fashion that has made its presence felt on the runway this season. So I am going to post the reviews of some collections that left a lasting impression on the fashion scene. First up is “Recherche” (to look ahead) by the young and petite designer Atithi Gupta.

Atithi sent rolling on the ramp sober and impeccable lines with sinuous drapes outlined in the most precious wools and silk.

Using a pleasing palette of avocado green, Golden Glow, an earthy shade of yellow, purple orchid, coral pinks, pewter grey and blacks, Athithi has played with linear, geometrical shapes with minimal, austere appearance.

Adorning her creations with textures and drapes, Atithi gave a retro chic turn to jumpsuits, dresses and jackets. Pleats were aplenty in “Recherche”, with Atithi placing them at the side, back, on shoulders, yoke, centre, stitching them or keeping them loose on the garments.

Sophisticated, stylish, youthful, and flirty… just about sums up Atithi’s collection. Will surely watch out for this young, emerging designer.

Check out some of the looks from the collection...

Aww, thank you for your comment :)

What fabric would I use for the skirt in real life?

Answer- chiffon, for a feminine and light breezy look.

I don't know much about fabrics, so maybe you would like to decide on what the fabric would be :D
