Presented a Colourful Bouquet of Garments at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.
His inspiration was the fragrant Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand where the beautiful flowers sway in the sunshine. Prashant Chauhan’s collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 was a tribute to the beauty of the region as he used it for prints, colours and detailing on his garments.
Embroidery, prints and appliqués recreated the beauty of the flora in varying multicolours. Opening the show with an intricately embellished dress with 3D flowers and metal butterflies on a pale blue base; Prashant showed beautiful asymmetric hem tunics with garden print tights. The sheer beach cover, the printed jumpsuits and the saffron shaded drop waist dress with flashes of flowers were elegant.
The kimono style silk dress with floral work and the crochet gown depicting flowers on the skirt added to the glamour of the collection. Bringing a fun element on the ramp, Prashant had two models in one large Tee with flower print wearing two red skirts and another pair of models in similar sheer and opaque knit cardigans teamed with black long skirts. The final entry – a long black leather bustier which flared into a skirt worn with a sequined bikini bottom was quite unconventional.
The natural fabrics that brought the collection to life started with hemp, soya, ramie, and silk and then moved finally to flex. Paying homage to nature, Prashant Chauhan’s collection will appeal to not only lovers of Mother Earth but also to the fashion conscious dresser.
