Designer Focus: Hemant & Nandita
A new and fresh approach to fashion each season is a task the husband-wife duo have managed to master. Their knack for versatility was evident through this showing ‘The Knot’, which married traditional patterns with contemporary silhouettes to create a functional and a wearable line. Retro styles with a sporty undertone such as the mini dress, skater skirts, bell-sleeved tunics and flared pants were given a modern treatment with pop-colour prints and fringes. Juxtaposing ikat with other patterns and embroidery concluded in lust-worthy ensembles and separates such as the full-sleeved shift dress, sheer crop-top paired with patterned retro bikinis, white dress with colourful fringes, grey pants with a sheer-sides top. An applause-worthy collection but lacked punch in a few ensembles.
