Designer Swapnil Shinde created a contemporary line by adding a traditional Maharashtrian
flavour by using Paithani fabric for his collection at Lakme Fashion Week here.
On day three, Swapnil Shinde showcased glamour from the era of Hollywood’s 1950s to create his collection ‘An Affair to Remember’. He played with traditional Maharashtrian Paithani weave with its antique gold and orange borders. Micro pleating was the perfect complement for the skirts accompanying peplum bustiers, blouses and dolman sleeve tops.
He used Paithani borders for skirts of different styles — mini, pencil, layered — giving the traditional fabric a modern silhouette.
Gentle soft colour palette of beige, jet black, mustard, berry and blue were used for the collection. Solid colours like black, white, purple highlighted the Paithani weaves.
Another designer Pratima Pandey presented her collection titled ‘Jack n Jill’, an ode to true love. The collection consisted of churidars, loose pants, crinkled cotton midis, kurtas, tunics with tonal or multi-coloured embroidery in shades of green, peach, orange, rust. Most of the garments were topped with off-white scarves.
