FDCI x LFW, 05-10 OCTOBER 2021



The 60’s graphic boom created a visual inspiration for Prreeti Jaiin Nainutia’s label ‘Nirmooha’ during the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week.

Her Collection “Retro-Spection” had all the pizzazz and zing of that era when free spirited, cool, fashion ruled the style charts with great, eclectic prints.

There was a marked emphasis on bold graphics along with a crazy rush for bohemian touches that were reflected in the collection.

Delicious colours created a sumptuous palette of hues, as sorbet tones of lavender, punch mint, yogurt, cantaloupe and lemon zest were part of the stylish menu.

The total ambience of the collection had a dream like quality about it, as flowing sheer fabrics like chiffon, georgette, organza with denim as a contrasting alternative, set the mood. With the theme being fluid, the line offered draped feminine dresses, fun filled tiered skirts, some exciting co- ordinate sets, practical bodysuits as well as dresses and suits in popular denim.

Adding a funky holographic touch to the ensembles, Prreeti selected abstract pastel hand embroidery with holographic sequins work. Detailing was seen abundantly as eyelets and fraying added to the stylish look of sturdy denim.

From body-con minis, to pretty playsuits and dresses detailed with eyelets and matching fanny packs, Nirmooha added halter maxis, some swirling tent dresses, embroidered bralettes with multi coloured tiered skirts and for added drama shimmering bustiers.

Men’s wear had a marked flamboyant touch when a colourful printed trousers and shirt combo made a brief appearance.

“Imagine sitting in a retro cantaloupe skater with a fruit punch in your hand and with all things resorty! This is the nostalgia I experienced while creating this line themed retro which we cherish almost all the time in this fashion fauna. The mood of the free-spirited silhouettes reminds me of freedom in fashion whereas, the bold graphics and embellishments tells us all about Nirmooha's passion for fashion. If I were a shade of retro, I would be Retro-spection's Mint Yoghurt for sure. FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week empowered me to tune in to this melody and let people enjoy this vibe too!” - Prreeti Jaiin Nainutia on her collection 'Retrospection' at LFW x FDCI'21.

When women long for the colourful, good, old days for their wardrobe options, Prreeti Jaiin Nainutia’s “Retro-Spection” looks will take them stylishly back to the fashionable past.
