Ritu Kumar had the honour of closing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring- Summer 2013 and she did not disappoint. She split her show in half showing off motifs and moods inspired by the Art Deco movement in 1930s.
The pieces were crafted to offer a modern representation. Dropped waists, bold forms and delicate embroideries were juxtaposed with modern techniques and shaping.
While later she took inspiration from the Indian Freedom Movement and the colonial era. This resulted in the use of rich tapestries, laces, brocades and embroideries.
The collection ended with a regal collection of gold, black and jeweled ensembles reminiscent of the India of the mid 20th century with its Baroque influences and distinctive style of Indo European fashion & who better than Esha Gupta the show stopper who walked the ramp with great grace and poise in the royal collection.
