MUMBAI: The collection for Garo, by fashion designer Priyangsu Maji pulsated sensuality mixed with a sense of strong Indian traditional culture in his recent collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012. The label, which is known for its Indian wear, showcased a collection inspired by Chinese pilgrim clothing, mixed with traditional Indian outfits for cross cultural influences.
Fabrics like printed Kalamkari, cotton khadi, cotton jacquard, cotton Narayanpet and kothi came in a plethora of designs-being printed; textures on the fabric along with tie-dye techniques and leheriyas were simply stunning.
Highly embellished torsos, which gradually spread out into flares of luxurious fabric with piping at the bottom; added an Indian heritage touch to the pieces! Whilst hand embroidered sequins jazzed up the outfits and left chunky neckpieces in metal and beads to add an air of authentic beauty. The colour palette had red, purple and took the form of dhoti saris, waist coats, pants and dresses.
Garo by Priyangsu Maji is one collection that aimed for the modern Indian woman who isn't afraid to experiment and makes a style statement.
