She called her collection “Cupcake Massacre” and the confectionery inspiration was the basis that created a sensation on the ramp at the India Resort fashion Week 2012. Sushma Patel used her colour story of delicate pastels and rich hues to bring forth a line of garments that spelt sheer glamour for resort wear.
Bringing in bikinis and then bits of drapes, adding on stylised jumpsuits and comfortable shifts, Sushma splashed them with chains and studs. The colours gave that extra punch to the collection of beach wear and night time glamour chic.
The show was perfectly divided with swimwear, jumpsuits and tiny frothy minis that followed the theme perfectly.
The opening segment was full of sexy sensuous tiny bikinis, monokinis and tankinis, some frosty with crystals while others gleamed in gold and one even had tantalising tassels on a shocking pink bikini. Covered with scarfs, kerchiefs, covers or the teensy weensy skirts; the look was fun filled for a romp on the sands or in the water.
The jumpsuits line-up was impressive with variations in necklines that ranged from scooped to halter, draped, cowl, plunging and will power, with lengths that moved from the cropped knee hemline version to the long ankle skimming ones. Fabrics moved from satin to lace and gold then moved on to abstract floral geometrics.
The cute mini dresses were layered in sheers or multi fabrics all with stylish sashes or waist bands and belts in hues that moved from black to fuchsia and then bright pinks and cupcake colours.
To keep the resort wear look in mind Sushma ended the show with silver mirror work swimwear with trailing lace skirts for that sexy touch.
The show stopper was the perky pretty Shehzan Padamsee in a satin flared mini with mirror bodice and a sensuous long shoulder trail. Mention has to be made of the lovely astral inspired hairstyles and makeup by Marvie Beck and her team that created the perfect look for the collection.
For that colourful resort look that offers the perfect icing to any woman’s wardrobe the “Cupcake Massacre” collection by Sushma Patel will be a delicious fashion serving.
