“An Ode to Indigo” stylish vibrant collection presented by Priyadarshini Rao


Picking a strong colour, Priyadarshini Rao presented a stylish vibrant collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014. “An Ode to Indigo” was a simple title for her line of garments, which played creatively with the many hues, shades and tones of indigo to display an entire collection.

At times, hints of tangerine and fuchsia made a surprise appearance amongst the pale sky blue, porcelain green, jade, teal, emerald, turquoise, Prussian, cobalt, navy and midnight.

Reviving silhouettes from the 1920’s, featuring midis with fluid “A” line and trapeze shapes, Priyadarshini put an emphasis on the detailed hemlines, which were asymmetric and layered to match the theme of the show. The base was dyed silks, Chanderis, chiffons, georgettes, chikankari and brocade georgettes with small accents of antique embroidery and tissue.

Paisleys, ditzy florals, blooms and organic geometrics added to the flavour of the collection. Layering was the constant factor of the fusion clothes as three or more ensembles came together seamlessly for a stylish impact.

Sheer tunics were matched with maxis and dresses, which were combined with fluid pants. Over-dresses added panaché to long crinkled creations along with pinafores and maxis with pleated bodice worn with sheer shirts. Multi-tiered and coloured kurtas covers and skirts along with vertically panelled maxis were comfy outfits.

Not forgetting the ethnic dresser, Priyadarshini had saris and lehengas teamed with soft unstructured jackets that nearly swayed around the ankles of the graceful models.

Ending the show with slim lehengas, cholis and dupattas, Priyadarshini gave perfect east/west options to dressers globally.

Accessories were limited to slim long chains, gold Mary Jane shoes and coloured stockings.

For an impactful fashion statement, Priyadarshini Rao’s “An Ode to Indigo” was the perfect collection for the coming season.
