It’s especially wonderful to observe young talent with a strong voice find its commercial balance. Rimzim Dadu,for a few seasons now,has been closely watched by the fashion folk waiting for her to find a practicality in her inventive aesthetic. And she finally seems to have got it right.

Dadu’s label,My Village,is a label adored for her clever use of wires,yarns,sequins and even PVC as surface embellishment. If it sounds futuristic,it even looks it. Metallics are the muse this season,more so with this metal-lover,who had a neo-antique line where fabrics were aged through dyeing,burning and staining techniques. The embellishments were pre-treated too,and the effects were complex. The show opened with a burnt metallic off-shoulder dress and went on to a metal plate number. Antique textures,a mini that looks like fins,tie-dye sequins and a stunning black cut-out sheath followed. If you’re looking for a cocktail dress that’s avante and edgy,and still very pretty,this is the perfect collection.
