MUMBAI: Inspired by the beautiful jewellery on Ma Durga, Surya Sarkar's "Daker Saaj" collection was a gorgeous study in white and gold at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012. With cotton, tussore, cotton silk, linen, Lycra and brocade, Surya worked his magic for a fusion line of women's and men's wear which was a great ode to Durga Pujo festivities.
A variety of jumpsuits, pants and classic structured gowns were the eye catchers on the ramp. Dresses were in assorted lengths while jackets made a welcome appearance on the catwalk. With only ivory as the colour Surya added appliqués in different shapes and sizes for the different western wear creations and placed them in strategic places. Origami folds were used lavishly for multi fold collars, or as side drapes.
Men's wear followed the colour story for the shimmering brocade bomber jackets and the appliquéd long sleeved blouson, waistcoats and Tee.
For the finale it was a flame red and gold appliqué sari-drape gown that was the stunner in a collection, which had a definite theme and was high on embellished construction.
For women who long for a spiritual touch in their wardrobe the "Daker Saaj" collection by Surya Sarkar will fit their needs.
