New Delhi: Ace designer Rohit Bal`s romance with the ivory was the highlight of his show at the Indian Couture Week with models sporting traditional ensemble in the milky colour making the collection look subtle and soft.
The designer showed up an out-and-out traditional, yet understated line.
The women mainly wore bandhgala anarkalis in ivory and gold. Bal, however, brought some colour in men`s outfits by opting for hues of pink, red, yellow and blue in shervanis and turbans.
"This is my favourite colour and has always been and that is why the collection has ivory all over. I love it and hence used it for the kind of elegant look I wanted," the designer said.
Even though some male models sported outfits in different colours, the pale colour stood out in the designer`s show. He displayed a monotone, subdued collection, giving the jewellery a chance to stand out, especially the long hanging earrings.
The designer said he wanted the jewellery to be noticed as it was a very important part of his line.
When asked about the inspiration behind his no-bling line, he said, "It is simplicity of thought, philosophy and existence. I wanted understated elegance in my collection and I am really happy with the end result."
Day three at the fashion week ended with his show last night, which was preceded by designers Monisha Jaising and Varun Bahl`s line.
Monisha put up her `World Bride` collection, displaying marriage of contemporary and traditional elements for a bridal look, whereas Varun`s `India Moderne` saw the designer add a modern touch to the Indian wear, with kurtis worn with pants and a special focus on the net work.
