Eco Friendly Show Fails to Capture Attention

It started on a fresh note, what with a carrot wrapped in a box kept neatly on everyone's seat, a violinist playing the background score and the reading of a conversation between a country girl and a city bred man about the deteriorating condition of the earth throughout the show.

However, nothing could really rescue Deepika Govind's show Saturday at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) from earning a yawning response from the audience.

An extension of Govind's autumn-winter 2007 line 'Go green' which she showcased in March this year, her spring-summer collection was themed 'Send my roots rain'.

The collection was divided into two categories - soulscapes and mindscapes- reflecting two opposite thought processes, one from the heart and the other from the mind.

"My collection had two sections. One was based on traditional art and the other contemporary art and technology. Through the show I wanted to draw a comparison between both," Govind said.

The first part of the collection was dominated by earthy shades such as moss greens and rust reds, mint and mustard. Soya bean fabric and bamboo lycra were extensively used in this line.

"Ikat prints used in the collection represent the influence of the organic in a fast paced technologically advanced world where nothing will ever be more beautiful that nature itself," she added.

Saris, shirts, skirts and dresses where unstitched fabric was used to give it the look of a cape in front and back. Some of the dresses had asymmetrical hemlines and kimono sleeves.

For men, there were suits, shirts with abstract prints and straight fit and parallel trousers teamed with velvet jackets.

The second line comprised of saris, body hugging dresses with abstract prints, coined shirts, double breast coats, shirts and trousers for men.

Colours such as midnight blue, vermillion, geranium, zenia, kingfisher red, black and white encompassed the palette. Bold strokes included nightshirts with bras, as innerwear became outerwear. The collection was accessorised with wedge heels, big quilted bags and scarves.
