New Delhi: Designer Pam Mehta has unveiled a "luxurious, sensuous and colourful" collection titled The Floral Fiesta -- an infusion of colours, embellishments and fabrics with an interesting play of threadwork.
"Luxurious, sensuous and colourful are the three words which can perfectly define the collection. It is inspired by the gardens of the heavens. Each ensemble defines sophistication and glamour," Mehta told reporters.
The collection boasts of Indian wear -- saris, lehengas, shararas, capes and anarkalis in fabrics like georgette, chiffon and net. They are described as a perfect amalgamation of traditional and modern designs.
"One will see the perfect blend of traditional and modern designs, essentially glamorous yet very wearable through the use of embellishments and fabrics. Mostly georgettes, chiffons and nets make each silhouette very wearable, sensual and thus complementing the look of the garment," she said.
"On anarkalis and gowns we have intricate thread-work and feminine drapes making it a perfect attire for a glamorous evening out. Lehengas and saris are also given a contemporary and modern feel this season. Also, layering is given a modern twist where a multi-layered anarkali is presented with sharara. Asymmetric cuts and experimental draping is also given an upbeat representation," she added.
There are loads of surface texturisation used in the form of embellishments such as Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, sequins, tassels and handmade beads along with fine embroidery in gold and silver threads.
To add more vibrancy to the silhouettes, the designer has used bright colours like red, green and orange.
"The colour fiesta can be seen through the vast palette of colours used in (label) Kisneel`s trademark colour blending and blocking techniques. Wide range of pastels is complemented with deep burgundy, wine and bottle green colours. Also, a wide range of warm tones like reds, oranges are seen," Mehta said.
The collection is available at designer`s outlet with prices on request.
