Mumbai, Aug 18: Designer Nachiket Barve’s collection ‘The Golden Hour’ transformed the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) ramp into the period just after dusk before the night claims the sky. The beautiful garments showcased by models bore colours that set the sky ablaze during this spectacle.
‘My collection is called the Golden Hour. When you see the theme of speed and you see the sky at the time just when the sun is set and just before its rising, its like a kaleidoscope of colour and its rapidly changing, every second. It’s a show that nature puts on for us. So translating speed in that essence was the way I chose to put it,’ Nachiket told reporters here.
The line that brought a riot of colours to the ramp brought forward silhouettes that were ethnic with a sense of the contemporary context. It included kurtas, kaftan gowns, draped dresses, saris and skirts in a colour palette that included burgundy, plum, pink, gold, crimson, black and scarlet. Fabrics like chiffon, georgette, crepe, silk and tussar were used.
Nachiket’s collection that was sponsored by logistics provider, DHL was a treat to the eyes owing to the simplicity of design and beauty of the colours used.
The show, also showcased collections by two other designers – Little Shilpa and Swapnil Shinde.
While Shilpa’s collection was futuristic, Swapnil presented a line based on the speed of air waves.
