Masaba: LFW Summer/Resort 2010

Masaba, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2010

Masaba isn’t one to shy away from prints or color and this collection, like her previous one was heavy on both (color and print). The men’s wear and women’s wear that she showed was playful and casual with an interesting mix of prints, colors and textures. We especially liked the hand/palm print in black and white. The jumpsuits with multi fabrics and dresses with hems attached on one shoulder were certainly interesting for the lack of a better word.

Being so reminiscent of her previous collection, all we’ll say is this… it’s great that she’s found her “signature look”, now we hope she just doesn’t fall into a rut.

In French Connection


Herve Leger might have started it all but it didn’t take long for everyone from Bebe to French Connection to get on the wagon and offer a cheaper alternative to the now signature bandage dress from the house of Leger… Speaking of which, spotted designer Masaba in a French Connection Ribbon Dress and it’s got to be said, she wore it rather well. We love the color and the way it fits her. The fact that she kept everything else minimal earns her extra points.

Lakme Fashion Week Spring 2010: GenNext Designers


In this day and age where almost all genres have been covered, it can’t be easy for a new designer to make a statement but each of these GenNext designers do make a place for themselves in the sun.

Masaba Gupta’s ‘Kattran’ was an indo-western collection running heavy on patchwork (a favorite of the designer). Between the excessive patchwork, the fusion touch and the vibrant colors, it got to be a bit much for my taste. If part of this collection feels familiar, it is because we’ve seen mom Neena wear some of it at recent events.

Muted colors like white, grey and light yellow and overlapping details marked Amalrag Sengupta’s collection ‘Kendo’ that drew inspiration from the Japanese martial arts form with the same name. While the details were interesting, would love to see how the designer tones it down/reworks it for the shelf space.

Kitschy and colorful would be how I would describe Mehak Jain’s collection. While, most would feel a very Manish Arora influence, I thought she still had a lil individuality in her pieces without seeming like a ripoff.

Rahul Anand stayed true to his theme ‘Gods Must Be Crazy’ by serving up a line of funky dresses in vibrant colors with even funkier embellishments. Yep’s that is a fan on the model’s head.

Soft feminine colors marked Shreya Sharma’s collection that was heavy on draping and ombre but the end result was more graceful than overwhelming.

Sabbah Sharma’s collection seemed to have drawn inspiration from Fall when it came to colors. No complains though, as I loved it. Would love to get my hands on those mosaic-like jackets/coverlets and those diamond pattern cocktail dresses.
