Deepak Perwani’s ‘Ishq’ flowed in pastel shades, sequins, gota and translucent chiffons, organza and net.
A large part of the collection comprised clothes that screamed ‘mehndi’-wear, with florals swirling about in multi-colours on simmered lehngas and shirts with varied lengths. Even the heavy bridal joras towards the end of the show were lighter than the more opulent options in the market – it’s quite obvious that Deepak is thinking of retail-friendly pricing as opposed to wedding-wear that costs an arm and a leg.
The menswear, similarly, came in all the colors of the rainbow – and while one is not a fan of men wearing loud colors, they apparently sell well. The plethora of society wedding images filtering onto social media, in fact, show plenty of men cavorting about in shocking pink and turquoise. Oh, well.
Much more refined were the classic sherwanis showcased towards the end of the show, white with a light floral design upon them and minimally embroidered. A good collection for closing off the second day of FPW.
And fashion week ended by a very civilized 10.30pm. That made us especially happy!
