MUMBAI: Khushboo Agarwal and Prem Kumar presented a fiery show with their new collection aptly christened 'Dark Romance' under their label Khem at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.
Blending in French Baroque influences along with the concept of 'The Tree of Life' this range blended in both careful constructions with softer touches for a collection that's simply mesmerising. Feminine, soft fabrics such as georgettes, crepes as well as silk cottons helped link Indian traditional fabrics with a cosmopolitan touch.
The pieces made for interesting forms, which sported bead, mokaish and badla work which was an infusion that aimed to give traditional art a modern edge. The range displayed an array of dresses, jackets and gowns in a subdued colour palette comprising shades of grey, green, blue and black. Romantic with an edge, rich colour infusions were in blood red, bottle green, royal blue, espresso and plum.
A piece that stood out from the collection was a ravishing blue-green dual toned shimmering number, which was accentuated by a bolero jacket.
Complementing this range perfectly the Lakme makeup experts kept the models' looks fresh with long eyelashes for a youthful, mysterious appeal and upswept hair styles.
A dance in the dark, a beauty to behold this range by Khushboo Agarwal and Prem Kumar is sure appeal to the fastidious buyer's inner desires.
