WLIFW: Ritu Kumar

There were goddess prints, mirror work, embroidery, fringes and floral motifs. Ritu Kumar's collection in one part paid homage to the old world 20s glam, think 'Gatsby', and then in the latter part to the Caribbean Islands.

The clothes were often accented by use of mirror-work, embroidery or tonal thread-work. There were kaftans, sheath dresses, contemporary saris, casual day dresses and vibrant floral ones.

The cuts for the most part stayed fit, sharply tailored, more mature and narrow on the wear. The more elaborate floral gowns were more voluminous and vibrant.

After seeing all the muted colour palettes, I find this collection refreshing. They are all different from one another, yet it flows through due to its hair, makeup, accessory and a touch of silver fabric. I like them all, and if I were to pick three, they would be the yellow dress, goddess printed outfit, and the last outfit or the sari.

Ritu is fab. I can see the Devi Mandala pattern on some garments. She is afterall the doyen or Granddame of Indian fashion, and rightly so.
