Fusion Fashion for Temple of Time

By: Stylekandy


The third & final & the most breathtaking collection were that of drapes. Exquisite bridal-wear saris with floral motifs and petals as if are marking the onset of the mellow spring season. What was your inspiration for such a lovely collection? "For the first one it was the care a damn kind of Indian girl that exudes power to me. The second personifies the character of the modern Indian woman who has adapted to the western lifestyle, yet is deeply rooted to Indian culture and ethos. The drapes are solely inspired from the cuts and silhouettes of the 16th century Indian empresses, they are my attempt to make a bride's dream come true", elaborates Archana tirelessly. At the end of it all, Archana had not one but two show stoppers- Geeta wearing a black deep back blouse under a sliver embellished sari and Mahima Choudhry sporting a short black dress and a Georgio Armani Prive

Armani's Prive collection at Paris Couture fashion Week used Rajasthan chic but eschewed the region's traditional bright hues, models instead emerging on the catwalk in slate, cream, and pearl grey. Skirt suits, cocktail dresses, and evening gowns were restrained, their tapered lines embellished with Taj Mahal-meets-Art Deco jewels and minimal draping around cinched waists; coquettish turbans and berets evoked a feel of 1930s glamor.

Maharaja-style tunics, with folded peplums, in pale gold and grey brocade were worn with skinny trousers, rouched at the ankle. Suits featured jackets embellished with a silver scimitar which formed one side of the lapel and ended in a be-jeweled handle protruding over one shoulder. The scimitar effect was also used on one-shoulder gowns. Though the showing was heavy on daywear, there were some red carpet ensembles, including a full-skirted cream organza gown with a fringed bodice and diamante trim. Elsewhere, Armani integrated elements of his Prive jewellery line, using semi-precious stones to form high collars on the jackets and to embellish the straps of column dresses.

The collection was showcased in of Modern Art, which had been transformed into a semi-circular theatre for 600 guests, and a black PVC catwalk snaked past the guests. Leading the Red Carpet contingent were Oscar-nominee Cate Blanchett (in an Armani trouser suit), Lady Helen Taylor (in a plunging L.B.D., also by Armani), and Katie Holmes (in a one-shouldered chiffon gown in pale tournmaline). Following the show, guests proceeded to dinner where mirrored tables were set amidst mirrored columns. The menu included an entrée of creamed cauliflower with crabmeat and caviar, followed by risotto with truffles.
