Curve it, Flaunt it- as the designer duo Rixi and Tinka dress their plus-size models making the Indian Woman fit for fashion
A trend for the real women is coming in with the flare of feminism and it has been presented by the designers through their magnificent designs making the beautiful women show their best side as they flaunt their curvy bodies. Bringing the ritual of “Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes” in dreamlike and wearable fashion, Rixi and Tinka Bhatia’s ‘half Full CURVE’, promoted body positivity with their collection “Gulab Bagh” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019. Curve is the new skinny has become the norm for the industry with all the debate over realistic fashion and designer duo has blown the minds of the industry with their silhouettes.
Creating a new reality, and enhancing the possibility of fashionable elegance, the new luxury fashion line is taking over the fashion world and establishing a statement of fusion for the beautifully natural bodies. The inspiration besides the love for body positivity came to the designers from the oriental interiors of royal palaces, textures of textiles and patterns of wall art, that created a mélange of unconventional designs.
A trendy outfit to look real, classy and stylish was the main aim of the new line. As we see the essence of the two designers in every outfit they presented, a fusion was notable throughout the show. The duo merged wearable gypsy and urban wear using intricate embellishments with surface textures and colour blocking. Their range was divided into two looks – Indian resort and traditional Indian wear, an appropriate choice for the contemporary Indian wedding, making it an appropriate choice for the contemporary Indian wear.
Beautiful models were dressed in long/short kaftans and kurta/dresses, cocktail saris, and draped palazzo pants to give the finest of resort looks and added the oomph to the collection. Each garment was interpreted with detailed embroidery making the life of the outfit lie in the fineness of the work that had an old-world charm.
With the intricate design what really caught the eye was the need for comfort fashion. The industry has been working on playful outfits for a while and these two designers together understand the idea crystal clear as the fluid silhouettes enhanced the comfort factor; while silk georgette created oodles of chic emphasis on the well placed colour palate of pinks, ecru, greens, aqua, olive and teal. In keeping with the theme for the Winter/Festive edition, resham/thread work, zardosi and sequins were used to create glitzy glamour.
The second coin was played as smoothly with the choice of fabric mix for the traditional indian wear. Dupion/Habutai silk, with organza for dupattas made the appeal of the outfit touch the boundaries it deserved. Gold and gunmetal zardosi work was juxtaposed, to create pizazz.
Blouses for everyone is what appeared to be the idea behind the innovative variety ranging from deep ‘V’ necklines along with pleated jackets, pre-stitched saris and draped dupattas. Variety in wardrobes is a ‘must’ for women of varying shapes and sizes, that will turn them into fashion Divas and the “Gulab Bagh” line by Rixi and Tinka Bhatia for their label “half Full CURVE” had all the right fashion credentials.
