New Delhi: At the Wills India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 2011, designer Urvashi Kaur presented a mixture of Indian traditional and contemporary style in a dramatic dance sequence. With traditional music in the background, the dazzling collection combined many elements together to form a creative explosion.
The colour palette varied from violet, electric blue, lime, indigo, yellow, green and red—all merging together at the end to form black. Lot of volume and movement was visible in the fabric.
Draped silhouettes with piped hemlines contributed to the
dramatics. Hand-loomed fabric and weaves like chanderi, tussar, woven silk, self patterned linen and wool jersey gave life to the silhouettes.
Wool yarn wrap around the neck was a prominent feature all the way through. Tie-and-dye motifs, wrap jackets, waist-coats, angarakha inspired kurtas, asymmetric panels and hemlines, Moroccan salwars, layered tunic dresses, churidar pants, cowled neck were the highlights. There was a textural feel to the whole collection.
The garments are very tactfully tailored to give the perfect finishing and fall. Winters won’t be very cold with Urvashi Kaur creation in one’s closet.
