Through The Cinematic Lens with Debarun

Debarun Mukherjee’s couture collection embarked on a journey through Indian cinematic costume through the decades from the black and white days of the 1930s to the present time. Of course, little has changed in hundreds of years of traditional Indian fashion let alone a few decades. Colours and trims come in and out of fashion as do ways to drape dupattas (scarves) and pallu lengths (the bit of the saree that is draped over the shoulder and falls down the back)  but nothing dramatic.

Nevertheless, this was a beautiful collection that I think the designer enjoyed putting together. The styling, hair and makeup was as beautiful as the collection.

A word of caution to anyone thinking of digging in the back of the wardrobe for a gem to wear again, do be careful. Debarun has removed the gaudy/comical side of 1980s and 1990s fashion. Beware of shoulder pads and stiff, puffy sleeves!
