Mumbai, Aug 27 IBNS | 2 years ago

Fashion designer Shravan Kumar presented his collection in bold unconventional fabrics on Day 4 (Monday) of the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2013 here in Mumbai.

Using a rich melange of handlooms, the range had a line of fusion, ethnic and western creations for women.

Freezing on a colour palette revolving around grey, white and candy pink at times in ombre tones, with ethnic prints like lotus, parrot and jhalar prints the garments offered formal stylish wear.

An Avant Garde printed gown with grey/pink bodice, swirling, panelled, printed skirt and cropped top were the highlights of the show.

Lehenga with peplum blouse, a sexy maxi skirt with contrasting godets and bikini top, Anarkalis, gowns with ornate shrugs, figure hugging tunics over kalidaar skirts and a swirling gown caught the eye of the audience.

Will-power jumpsuits patched and printed, a colour blocked mermaid shaped halter gown, drop crotch pants with tops.

Shimmering crystal bikini tops were teamed with panelled lehengas, dhoti pants midi skirts. Saris looked regal with pretty embellishments and the dupattas at times had cutouts.

Men's wear continued with the print and colour story for Sherwanis, jackets, kurtas, waistcoats, soft covers with padded shoulders and once again drop crotch pants.

The very striking high-heel laced-up boots were in self-designed khadi with silver zari and printed fabrics that added a retro look to the garments.

Interestingly crafted bags from bamboo and recycled leather completed the look.

Ending the show with a double offering of celebs - ace Ad man, Prahlad Kakar in a grey/white printed sherwani, kurta and churidar, while Bollywood star Shriya Saran modelled a printed lehenga, pink bustier and dupatta.
