MUMBAI: Inspired by the popular Hollywood blockbuster "The Great Gatsby" Pronoy Kapoor's collection was aimed at the powerful women of the New Age who are feminine but in complete control of the world around them at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013. Using tweeds and woollen fabrics, Pronoy had cleverly added various dyeing and washing techniques to manipulate the textiles.
From structured fabrics to fragile organza, which was textured by hand; the collection had slim skirts, sharply cut jackets, billowy blouses and stylish sheath dresses.
Giving a dramatic edge to the collection, the bubble wraps around the heads of the models in white organza added to the glamour of the show. Bringing in zig-zag weaves for the stylish grey dresses, the long sleeve jacket teamed with a pearl embroidered sari, the grey simple coat having white borders, worn over a white organza smocked sheath; the overall look was elegant but slightly extreme to give an exciting twist to the retro inspiration.
Fashion of the past with large doses of the future made Pronoy Kapoor's collection a great offering.
