Fashion, a cause
A DISORDER in the dress sometimes reflects extraordinary art. For those who take pleasure in disorder, it becomes a visual treat. La Pashmina this past week unveiled its Winter Collection 2003 in a well choreographed ramp show, at the sprawling lawns of Uppal's Orchid at Gurgaon.
The collection showcased novel designs in orange hue, which sought to strike a balance between excitement and stateliness. The Chevron stripes, herringbone and Scottish checks, made for a prim business look.
Shawls, inspired by some of the country's top-notch designers like Rohit Bal, Monapali, Hemant Trivedi etc, featured cleverly spangled Swarovski crystals fused with a touch of traditional Indian embroidery and weaving.
The Master Piece Collection of body art is, `inspired by the original designs of master artists like Rabindranath Tagore, Ghulam Rasool Santosh and Jamini Roy', maintain its designers.
La Pashmina, apart from being one of the most sought-after wools in the world, is hailed as a good alternative for the banned Shahtoosh shawls. Increased use of Pashmina will hopefully discourage the use of the latter.
