Signature Premier Fashion Week Kolkata - Day 3
Ok.........so after yet another fun-filled & exciting evening (though we also had our fair share of issues & disappointments!) of fashion & style on the third day of Kolkata Fashion Week at The Park, I'm back with the review. :)
It, being a Sunday, the shows were filled to capacity and the crowd was overwhelming. We literally had to fight with the Press for front row seats as we couldn't have managed to get good pictures from the 2nd or 3rd row. I would definitely have preferred it if the management would have made sure that we got good seats from where we could take good pictures (as we had been invited by them to cover the event)....but unfortunately, we were left to our own devices. Thankfully, one of my acquaintances from the fashion industry very sweetly gave up her front row seat for me, as she knew I had to take pictures.
The two shows I ended up attending yesterday were Sumit Dasgupta & Soumitra Mondal. Though I had REALLY wanted to catch Bibi Russell's show as well...it got so late that I had to leave without seeing her show!
Sumit presented a bridal wear line that was high on opulence & bling! Traditional silhouettes, gorgeous fabrics & grand designs in myriad hues formed a collection that can easily be a part of a girl's dream trousseau. Flowing drapes, swirling skirts & cascading layers on the women made way to sharp silhouettes, elaborate embroidery & luxurious fabrics on the men. Net sarees & lehengas with brocade & embroidery turned heads as velvet juxtaposed with silks, chiffons & georgettes to create a magnificence that was unmatched.
The layered skirts of the lehengas need a special mention as do the men's velvet sherwanis. The models swayed down the ramp in dark eyes, red lips & with big red paper bindis on the foreheads representing Sumit's women - bold, beautiful & confident.
