Nachiket Barve’s Ultra Glam Looks
Nachiket Barve’s collection ‘Passport Princess’, inspired by the colorful elements of the Caprese Brand is aimed at the new age modern women who spend ample time jetting around, the looks were created keeping in mind the events one needs to cover at an international level. To cater to this need an intelligent mix of coordinated separates was designed.
Looking at the lush bamboo groves of the Jardin Majorelle of Marrakesh where the wearer can channel her inner Talitha Getty; the looks were inspired by the languid Moroccan flavors with the sprig of leaves motifs embellished in gold silver and white on the luxurious evening wear.
The fabrics comprised of georgette, velvet, silk and tulle in hues of hot red and black as the prominent hues while white, maroon and blue appeared to create a colorful balance. Appeared in white, silver or gold to highlight the very feminine silhouettes that the jet setting lady will love. The amazing patterns were achieved with hand punched wool felt appliqué.
The show’s woww was the jade printed poncho with fringed hemline and teamed with ivory palazzos. The floor-length robe, black sheer maxi over a bodysuit and the 3D embellishments on floor kissing gowns were the highlight of the look.
The collection showcased glittery Kaftans both long and the mini ones. The white palazzo with long robe, jumpsuit with embroidered bodice and shoulder trails, the low crotch pants with one-shoulder red tunic and the maroon velvet one-shoulder kaftan with fringes created the mood of the inspiration perfectly. Ponchos were either short or long at times in tulle. Net capes added to the seductive appeal of the gown as they appeared on the runway.
Rakul Preet Singh, the Bollywood star swayed the ramp in a glittering, black, jumpsuit under a long net robe with fringed long sleeves closing the show for the talented designer.
Lakmé Official Makeup Expert at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019, Namrata Soni for the Nachiket Barve show kept the face matte with only a sheer blush on the cheeks to add a pop of color. The eyes were the center of attention, a matte blue eyeshadow was used to create an exaggerated cut crease wing. The eyes were defined with a strong brow and heavy mascara. The look was completed with the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade Coral Kiss.
