Mumbai, Aug 6 Designer Bhairavi Jaikishan showcased an elegant variety of Indian cocktail wear for women here at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week-Winter Festive 2012. Known for using pastel shades and deep necked blouses, for the first time she used deeper colours and designed high necked blouses.
“My collection is based on evening cocktail wear. It is not only traditional, it is young and stylised. I have used deeper colours like midnight blue, ivory, mustard, burgundy and black for the first time. I usually stick to pastels,” Jaikishan said.
The collection was an interesting mix of contemporary yet traditional Indian wear like lehengas, saris and the lehenga sari. For most of the saris, she used net and it had silver and gold work on it.
“The lehenga-sari is very interesting. It has the style of a lehenga with the grace of the traditional sari,” she said.
The exquisite range of blouses had heavy work with embellishments on both the neck and the back. The nude coloured provided an interesting contrast with the saris and lehengas.
“All my blouses have high embellished necklines which omits the need to wear any jewelled neck pieces with the outfit,” the designer added.
