For me, this show of Payal Jain’s was very bleh. The models were styled the same old boring way and while I can appreciate the craftsmanship that might have gone behind the clothes, thats where it ends for me. There was just a bit too much smocking and embroidery going on! The dresses at times were gathered and billowing, smocked and embroidered all at one time to a not so great end result! The show did have a feminine, whimsical vibe, even victorian at times.. I guess thats her way of interpretting, ‘ultra-feminine’, I don’t know!
But am not totally dismissing the show, the collection had its high points..some individual pieces were fabulous like those ‘achkan’ inspired tops!
