In her debut showing at WIFW on March 28th, 2010, designer Nandita Mahtani will show an eveningwear resort line, easy fashion in simple basic cuts that will appeal to women of all ages, clothes that are dreamy, romantic yet with a strong sense of drama.
The holiday collection is in neutrals restricting the fabrics to georgettes, chiffons, lycras and knits with a creation of an unexpected print mixing bandhani with butterflies. Keeping a firm grip on the color story with shades such as black, olive, brown, tan, skin and a dash of white, the collection teams sensuality with its characteristic pretty look. Focusing on feminine cuts, embellished with lots of sequin sheeting, chains, chain mails, stones, rivets which lend an edgy appeal, the ultra glam evening section has an assortment of dresses, very short skirts, hot pants, vests, jackets as well as flowy long dresses.
For the designers loyalists signature pieces in newer versions do crop up which Nandita maintains are their best sellers. The trade mark kurtis, which are still famous in London are presented in a variety of shades with thread and metallic work. Mixed sheer sexy printed dresses underlines her never ending romance with Bohemia
Says Nandita Mahtani, “The line spells metallics and military chic as a huge trend. Dark edgy and tailored looks speckled with simple sexy flowy silhouettes make this an unusual symphony. The idea is to offset sexy dresses with a dash of the unexpected and have fun with fashion and accessories. Statement pieces, which make every woman, feel like a diva. ”
A combination of contrasts Nandita’s line combines hard rock with lady like mode. Sophistication and glamour is the mainstay of the designer’s collection.
