DIVYA REDDY MERGED SUSTAINABLE FASHION WITH STYLE AT 6DEGREE STUDIO DURING LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2017
Divya Reddy made a strong fashion statement when she declared ‘green’ as the new black, at 6Degree Studio during Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.
After making her ramp debut at Lakmé Fashion Week 2015, Divya Reddy has never looked back, as her career graph for opulent festive and bridal wear has soared up the ladder of success. Gearing her designs to ethical, ecological, sustainable fashion, her collection ‘Sage’ projected a harmonious peaceful vibe.
The USP of Divya’s collection was the fabric, which had a great fashion story. The Kolam tribe in the Kawal forest collected the cocoons after the flight of the butterflies. These were turned into exquisite silk, spun by using double spun technique, where the broken strands are double spun and stuck together to create strong silk yarn with a slubby nature called Madhepur Tussar.
Divya used its regal texture for her glorious creations. One of the prime qualities of the fabric is the ability to keep the body warm in winter and cool in summer so, Divya’s collection will have a year round appeal and truly long fashion life.
The deep moss green hue was a constant for most ensembles. But the marked Spanish-inspired silhouettes were striking on the catwalk. Layered, frilled, maxi skirts were worn with matching body-hugging, long-sleeved, embroidered cholis with flouncy cuffs; while the modern version of the lehenga with abstract work and graduating yellow, brown, blue, maroon, striped, hemline looked stunning with an embellished fan-sleeved cropped top. Sheer and bell-sleeves teamed with heavy oxidised pieces of chunky jewellery gave the silhouettes that extra touch of perfection. Here, was fashion drama of the ultimate kind that could turn the ensembles into conversation pieces.
In true show stopper fashion, the critically acclaimed actress, Taapsee Pannu wore the hottest shade of pink and broke the monotony of the muted tones of green and salmon pink. Wearing a stunning floor-length, long-sleeved, intricately, embellished jacket over a sheer delicately embroidered piece, her outfit was a definite trendsetter for women who want to make their mark in the crowd and look glamorous.
For glittering bridal wear options that combine the aesthetics of fashion with care for the nature, the ‘Sage’ collection by Divya Reddy will be a great seller.
JAYANTI REDDY BROUGHT THE DRAMA OF THE BYZANTINE ERA TO 6DEGREE STUDIO DURING LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2017
It was glamour of a bygone era that took over the ramp at 6Degree Studio during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.
Jayanti Reddy known for her glamorous, ethnic, fusion, formal wear created a gorgeous collection for the festive season. Inspired by the colours and fashion of the Byzantine period, which was seen during the Roman Empire, Jayanti brought the razzle-dazzle of the past onto the catwalk.
There was a variety of silhouettes with lehengas, jackets, shararas, blouses, shawls, tunics and pants. The ensembles worked wonders in accentuating women’s curves with fitted and flared shapes. Numerous blouses offered a fashion twist - either asymmetric hemline, peplum fits or were teamed with full-length jackets. Heavy ruffles and exaggerated tassels added to the royal element in the collection.
While the silhouettes were relatively conservative, it was the golden embellishments that Jayanti scored with. They were rich and opulent and used with great care so as to highlight the salient points of the ensembles without looking too exaggerated or over the top.
The rich fabrics like silks, velvets and tulles were ideal for the creations but it was the construction and the colours that were the focal point of the garments. Deep hues of smoky grey, rich mustard, royal blue, elegant mauve, hot pink, pastel teal and dramatic black, gave intense style directions to the garments.
The show ended with talented Bollywood actor, Aditi Rao Hydari, who looked like a Byzantine period princess in a black full-flared lehenga, maxi Anarkali style jacket, soft gold bandeau blouse and dupatta - all embroidered in golden hues.
When it is superlative glamor and regal attire that women long for, Jayanti Reddy’s Byzantine line is the one that will deliver the right silhouettes.
