A Dream and an Ode to Master Artisans: Day 2 at WIFW

Continuing his Rajputana theme this season designer, Samant Chauhan was inspired by romance and illusion and thus ‘dream’.  Samant has a loyal band of followers and stockists sprawled across India and the Middle East and I’m sure they loved the intricate antique-look thread embroidery which is turning into a bit of a trend for next season.

Samant loves neutral shades and the embroidery brought an element of freshness to his signature look of natural Bhagalpur silk and dark metallic embroideries.

Master craftsmen were paid their due respects by Kavita Bhartia who showed a collection of chintz inspired flowing dresses and pants.  The soft pink shade, dusty rose type, was gorgeous.  This might be controversial… I know the show was dedicated to craft and there was a lot of it looking very beautiful indeed, however, I preferred the more subtle designs that had only a highlight of craft work.
