Lakme India Fashion Week Winter 2011 - Preeti S. Kapoor

Designer Preeti S Kapoor is a favorite of mine because of her easy-to-wear creations and beautiful color palettes. Combining everything from Rajasthani to French influences, this collection has something for every bride-to-be. Which one is your favorite?

















"Going completely Indian for her choice of silhouettes, Preeti preferred lehengas, shararas, saris and anarkalis to give a dramatic touch to the creations. With so much ethnic glamour on the ramp Preeti worked with traditional ornamentation to highlight the beautiful lavish fabrics. Resham, gold, Zari and precious stones were turned into beautiful motifs which dazzled under the ramp lights.

Her colour story was bold and lavish with maroon, rusty orange, cream gold, red, green, yellow, mustard, blue and pastels all embellished with intricate embroidery like mirror work and crafts of Bengal.

Moving into the grandeur of Rajasthan, Preeti used rich fabrics like brocades, silks, velvets, tulles, silks and nets which were turned into saris with traditional borders and pallavs, glamorous swirling panels for long full skirts and cholis.

The final segment was Paris with pretty ensembles using French lace and satin trims in shades of cream and ivory for a glittering bridal collection. Crystals and Zari for yokes, sleeves, sexy cholis and lean sherwanis were accompanied by bunches of multi coloured flowers which were splashed on the garments and saris in an elegant manner; while the twinkling waist belts around the saris were a great addition."
