Looking at a new day, a new year, and a new life, Geisha Designs by Paras and Shalini showcased a fashionably positive collection at the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week.
Their “New Beginnings” line was all about celebrating the joi de vivre with a clean white slate as an inspiration. Aimed at the woman who celebrates life and self-love, the ensembles were feminine, flouncy and at times delicately flirty. Lustrous silk and satin played a perfect melodious fabric symphony, while myriad colours danced on the surfaces.
“New Beginnings is our Festive Occasion-wear collection. It celebrates freedom, a break away from traditional attire but befitting special ceremonial/celebratory occasions. Dresses, Saris and Skirt-sets have a holiday/sporty styling to add some colour and emotion to the otherwise monotony of Life. We are excited about the new collection and its showcase. The virtual/ film format, while challenging, has opened new avenues to explore story telling- in terms of choosing locales and playing with cinematography, music, etc.
We are loving it! It’s a beautiful approach to reaching out to a much wider audience than was possible through the traditional runway format and hopefully the spectators find it visually delightful and engaging. Fashion Weeks have evolved over the years - in terms of both quality and Content. This podium offers such a diverse display of products and the best of indigenous produce in apparel truly celebrating Make in India and Made in India. FDCI & Lakmé Fashion Week continuing their partnership in showcasing Pan India participation biannually, despite all odds that the pandemic has wreaked, lends a purpose and we hope the effort translates into wider consumption and business for all the stakeholders”- said Paras and Shalini of Geisha Designs.
Embroidery was the star focal point, but in a delicate but radiant format that created an amazing impact on the garments. Frills and ruffles played a vital role to highlight the utterly feminine line, which will appeal to women who are embarking on a new an exciting fashion path.
The deep red lehenga and choli projected a New Age look for the bridal wear. The lehenga encrusted with 3D appliqués vied for attention with the seductively, ruffled off shoulder choli.
A more western offering was the beautifully embellished form fitting gown with elaborate sleeves a deep ‘V’ décolletage and printed inner. Colours, florals, prints and appliqués danced with gay abundance on the ensembles. Going for something a little unconventional, it was the cropped biker’s embroidery jacket with a lehenga and another long-sleeved cropped zippered creation that were eye-catchers.
Cute boleros over bustier, some with cut-out long-sleeves and an embellished waistcoat inspired choli, brought a fun element to the collection, while the will-powered gown made a grand entry. Saris were edged with fluttering 3D flowers and looked amazing in their multi coloured hues. Showing a fashion direction towards exaggerated puffed sleeves with the long skirts, the designing duo ensured that drama was at its peak during the line-up of clothes.
For the coming season it is all about “New Beginnings” in a stylish mode from Geisha Designs by Paras and Shalini that will add immense value to women’s wardrobes.
