Shyamal and Bhumika’s collection inspired by Holi had models walking to “Rang Barse”. The beginning set of outfits consisted of dresses with the illusion of color splashed on them and while we thought it was a print, on closer inspection it turned out that the effect was brought out by indeed splashing color on the material which in turn made the outfits feel stiff instead of flowy. A bummer because those were the more fun outfits of the collection.
Next came in cocktail dresses and gowns in a variety of colorful prints and while some were interesting, others just made us feel like were watching a Garden Vareli sari ad updated to include modern silhouettes.
P.S. Pardon the shaky video, we aren’t professionals yet at recording. :P
