Nifty Next
The seven-designer GenNext show began with dim lights and the name “Gaga” on giant screens. The excitement was palpable in the crowd, comprising young students mostly. But this was no Lady Gaga show, rather it was the beginning of Lakme Fashion Week’s Summer/Resort 2012 edition.

The show, which displayed the works of the label ‘Gaga’ by designer Tanya Sharma (hence, the name on the screen) and six other labels, was a mixed bag. While Sharma’s line didn’t portray hip hop in a new way — what with net saris, polka dots and overwhelming flower prints for men and women — there were others who showed promise. For instance, National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) and National Institute of Design (NID) graduate Yogesh Chaudhary. He used stripes, box pleats and mirror work in his collection titled ‘In a box’. His striped sari and striped sheer skirts were impressive. Chandigarh-based duo Manoj Kumar and Vinod Bhardwaj wowed everyone with their banyan tree-inspired line that had jute shrugs and wood embedded belts paired with long, flowing dresses in shades of earthy green and brown.

Prashant Chauhan added a splash of colour with his vibrant line called ‘Daughters of Tibet’. Staying true to the Tibetan theme, he used appliquéd and embroidered panel borders; though the use of wool and faux fur made it out of place at a summer/resort event.

Lastly, there was Shikha Grover and Vinita Adhikare’s label Ilk that beautifully juxtaposed opaque and sheer fabrics in a line of asymmetric dresses, shorts, looped collars and draped midis called ‘I Lose Myself’. The overall visual appeal was not lost to the crowd.

Blend of Fashion
Shivan and Narresh merged two lines for their show: Mosaic and Handicraft. The former had jumpsuits, rompers, trousers and sarongs playing up colour blocking to the hilt. But the latter segment, a bespoke swimwear line, dwelt on braiding, draping and embellishments, apart from being stitch free. The lampshade shaped headgears only served to add to the drama.

Sorbet punch
Masaba Gupta’s show, as expected, added a dose of glamour to the proceedings. While mother Neena Gupta had came in an hour before the show, Anil Kapoor’s producer daughter Rhea dropped in just in time to root for Masaba. Prateik was the showstopper, which fetched the designer some more applause . The clothes — palazzo saris, Patiala salwars, cropped tops, as also tunics and waist coats, were dominated by the camera and cow motifs — lent the collection a quirky feel. The colour palette that boasted of baby pink, lemon yellow and pista green, along with black and white, justified the collection’s name ‘Sorbet’. This collection had fun written all over it.
