Actress Vani Kapoor walked the ramp for Payal Singhal at Lakme Fashion Week
Payal Singhal has always researched in depth for her collections and this season, she was inspired by India’s first fashion export to the world - the “Chintz” – print, which came from the Coromandal Coast and to add more magic to her collection was Bollywood gorgeous actress Vani Kapoor.
Aptly naming her collection “Excavations” for Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014, Payal’s display of the lovely iconic Indian print was translated into deep tones of aqua, navy, teal, sienna, cranberry and coral, which she transferred onto luxurious crepe, silk and linen.
Known for her trendsetting silhouettes, Payal brought in deconstructed Indian shapes to highlight the beauty of her ensembles.
Interesting entries were the racer back choli teamed with crepe churidar-skirt and printed overlap panel, the chiffon dupatta draped sleeve for the kurta, the silk mul lehenga-sari, navy linen embroidered ghagra-sharara pants and the silver ring embroidered cut-out short dress, which offered several options to the stylish buyer.
For the showstopper Vani Kapoor, it was a cranberry red, gold and silver ring embroidered choli with matching churidar-lehenga and dupatta.
Women who love practical, stylish, impactful creations will adore the “Excavations” collection by Payal Singhal.
