Ritika Bharwani presents Midnight Soiree
LFW W/F 2012
Young, dynamic and doué designer Ritika Bharwani uleashed a contemporary themed collection christened ‘MIDNIGHT SOIREE’at Lakme Fashion Week – Autumn/Winter 2012 on 6th August 2012,
The collection paid homage to modern contemporary architecture which was interpreted in the designs through geometric and circular embroidery motifs juxtaposed on dramatic yet structured silhouettes. Inspiration to this contemporary collection hailed from the timeless European architectural design motifs which were characterized by symmetry and proportion.
The collection dawns like the morning sun, changing hues from molten gold to a fiery vermillion, progressing into deeper hues such as electric blue and midnight black, played across georgettes, jersey with shimmer foil and flowing nets. Interpreting the art of embellishment in her own unique way, this doué designer experimented with raised embroidery techniques using mother-of-pearl and gold metal materials. This embellishment found the perfect partner in shimmer foil gold jersey that has been crafted to drape along the silhouette. This high glamour collection leaned heavily on dramatic drapes and fluid structuring that lends itself perfectly to cocktail dresses, dramatic gowns, stylish jumpsuits as well as separates.
On this occasion, Ritika Bharwani asserts, “Each creation of my collection ‘Midnight Soiree’ is crafted to perfection with imaginative construction and embellishments. I am also looking at constructive feedback that I always rely on to constantly better my work.”
