Fashion passion ran high at the closing show of Sustainable Fashion Day at the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week with the Tencel x Satya Paul by Rajesh Pratap Singh show.
It was a delightful double whammy of sorts with first a fashion film and then the physical show, a colourful and sustainable collection titled ‘The Master’s Words’.
The film titled ‘The Search’ featured Rahul Bose, all suited and booted, who seamlessly stepped out of the film frame and onto the spacious venue. He looked bewildered but the audience loved every moment of it with its mix of fashion, theatre and film, bringing alive a retro vibe.
The live showcase featured Carbon Zero Tencel fibres and paid tribute to the late Satya Paul who passed away earlier this year and also launched the revolutionary Carbon Zero Tencel fibres.
Catching your eye was the riot of colours and abstract patterns for men and women with a marked 70s and 80s vibe. For women, there were summer sheaths, minis, jackets with bralettes and pants, dresses, draped skirts, tunics, shirt waisted dresses, hoodies and joggers. Kaftans, knee-length coats, a trench version, pinafores, togas, halters, jumpsuits and biker’s jackets added more options. Of course, there was also the sari. And the leggings and tights in multi-colours made their stylish statement.
For me there were tees, shirts and trousers that vied for the colour card with the women’s wear collection, thus offering the male dresser bright, sartorial options for the coming season.
And closing the show was the lovely Tripti Dimri who looked smashingly good in a black lace bodysuit, pants and a tuxedo jacket with satin lapels.
