Known for opulent contemporary Indian wear, Bandana Narula’s collection “Dazva” at The Studio during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019 was an amalgamation of mesmerizing silhouettes.
With an underlying style mantra of uniting energies and vibes, that could be stark contrasts when viewed individually, “Dazva” which means ‘Liberal’ had ensembles that were visions of beauty on the ramp.
Ensuring that the sharp geometric chevrons were the focal points of the garments, delicate floral patterns were intricate to create a symphony of handwoven dreams. Lilies and hydrangeas were mesmerizingly teamed with self-hued sequins and Dabka.
For a cache of designs, there was a range of skirts, chic drapes, playful anarkalis, cropped tops, along with beautiful saris and raglan sleeves, for the perfect fusion of Indo-western appeal.
Accentuating the silk textures, with myriad self-hued sequins, belts were added, to further highlight the scintillating appeal of the line. Experimenting with a tie knot blouse the designer teamed it with an organza mauve dupatta, while the chevron pleated, taupe, the skirt was a definite trendsetter. The mint pleated Anarkali with raglan sleeves was a head-turner.
The gorgeous Shibani Dandekar stopped the show in a sensuous, floral, corset with a chevron design lehenga that gracefully moved from purple to mauve, while the appliquéd flowers around the neckline were stunning.
When it comes to a versatile fluid and eye-catching line of clothes, “DAZVA” by Bandana Narula will make a show-stopping pause.
