With 12 of India’s hottest designers showcasing their collections, Delhi Couture Week 2011 set the stage for this seasons hottest trends. From colors, fabrics, levels of bling and embroidery and overall design, follow Luxemi’s trend report to make sure you’re wearing this season’s best fashion:
The clear trends at Delhi Couture Week 2011 included:
Neutral Colors: Earthy tones of beige, browns and off-whites
Embroidery: We were happy to see that the use of embroidery was more minimal but still rich. Despite the prevalence of embroidery, gota and zardosi work seemed to be the favorites for many.
Decadent Fabrics: This season there was more emphasis on the fabric rather than loading every inch of fabric with some Indian craft. We noticed a lot of brocades mixed with peek-a-boo fabrics like net and ultra thin georgettes.
Progressive Designs: The designs were progressive and simpler than what Indian brides are normally accustomed to, giving the collections a very global appeal.
Toned Down Bling: The bling quotient was taken down a notch to make way for more sophisticated and timeless pieces that represent Indian fashion at its best.
