LFW: Debarun brings melange of summer hues
Mumbai, Mar 23 : "Be You" declared designer Debarun Mukherjee at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2013 when he presented his unique collection for men and women on Friday here.
Bringing in a melange of summer hues onto the ramp, Debarun let his creativity loose by selecting kora cotton and viscose woven striped fabrics and then added tribal inspired block prints.
Reflecting a marked 70s look of bohemian chic, the silhouettes were free flowing and spelt ultimate comfort, allowing the wearer to make a personal fashion statement.
Shorts, 'ganjee' and tank tops - some knotted to add style, sheath dresses and swirling jackets gave women's wear a trendy touch. For evening glamour the designer worked with crepe, chiffon and tulle with splashes of metal sequins and print circles.
The floppy smock, draped net gown, gathered silk creation, interesting bold saris with stripes/ prints, vertical railroad stripe sack, mini skirt with knotted shirt were some of the eye-catching entries.
The striped shift and the multi-tiered printed maxi offered a varied selection of casual and formal wear.
The long regal gown that glided down the ramp with layers of flared tulle for the skirt was a sensuous end to the women's wear segment.
For the men, Debarun brought in pastel linen for trousers and teamed them with cool striped shirts and summer coats.
Half way through the show Debarun injected excitement with a flash mob act of eleven dancers from the audience who jumped onto the ramp and entertained with their groovy dance moves to Michael Jackson's "They don't Care About Us" which further emphasised the theme of the collection.
The showstopper was actor Sahil Anand of Karan Johar film "Student of the Year" wearing a sharply cut jacket.
