Payal Kapoor presents festive ‘Rang Birangi’ collection
Payal Kapoor’s unveiled her collection called ‘Rang Birangi’ at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2011. Staying on the ethnic path, Payal Kapoor’s gave her saris, blouses, salwar/kameezes and tunics all the touches that will appeal to brides and the festive dressers. Fluid silhouettes in net and silk swayed down the catwalk in shades of rust, dull green and nude. Lavishly using ombre for the garments, Payal gave the sari blouses a generous splash of sequins in multi colours. Combining the traditional with the more elegant touch and adding ethnic motifs, Payal used gota and aari embroidery lavishly. Displaying a collection of lean tunics or Kalidar kurtas with a wide assortment of gota and Dabka work on the borders and the main garment, Payal showed a line of ethereal net saris in dual shades of beige/turquoise or red/ivory which were teamed with shimmering gold churidars or slim petticoats. Net played a major role for the majority of the collection and even appeared for the wide salwars.
Payal ended the show with a solo entry by super model Sheetal Malhar in a flame red net lehenga/choli combo encrusted with unbelievable embellishments and draped in an orange net dupatta.
