Lakmé India Fashion Week-Krishna Mehta

An Indian girl in Paris isn’t a popular saying or sentiment but perhaps after seeing the stylishly bright, Parisian inspired Krishna Mehta collection it’ll start catching on. The Summer/Resort 2010 line combined colorful prints, embellishments and silhouettes with sharply tailored cuts and a European flair. The look combined a mixture of vintage looking time periods: the late 1930s meets the 1970s with structured jackets and trousers in a range of colors. Clothes were seen in moody dark tones like muddy brown and gray to shocking yellow, red, blue and green. The occasional richness of purple and black and white seeped on to the clothes and cotton, silk, jersey and velveteen fabrics were used.

The models all walked down with one of the best summer accessories: a healthy glow and tan to them. Otherwise it was tall bouffants and updo's and low-key lips with defined eyes. The latest fashion trends seen on the Indian runways include biased jersey tops, glittery tunics, bubble and printed minis and sack dresses with corresponding scarves and plenty of feminine draping. The show and collection were a beautifully different, trendy and refreshing way to kick off my fashion week experience. Plus, I love that sparkly and bright punchy colors stay current in this warm weather blessed city, year round.
