“Enlightened Shadows” was the dramatic title of the collection presented at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Fashion 2012 by Shradha Murarka and Ninon Palisse of Vizyon.
It was haute couture inspired by the romantic, mysterious yet seductive eras and poems of dark and enchanting life. To match the look, the colour palette moved from brown, porcelain and black to midnight blue, turquoise and green. Geometrics and abstract shapes appeared for the silhouettes along with embellishments, which revealed the illusion of insects, beetle shells, butterfly wings and cobbled web motifs that gave an unconventional touch.
The soft feminine fabrics ranged from matte cady and black lamé to georgette, leather and taffeta, that was crafted into stunning cocktail dresses, elegant jackets, skirts, jersey trunks and sweeping Red Carpet gowns. The matching line of leather shoes in blue and black was a perfect complement to the collection.
The lean silhouettes were enhanced by the many cut outs and layered origami detailing on the garments to give a very formal look to the creations.
Creating drama on the catwalk were the cream and brown evening dress with ruffles, an overlapped cut-out dress, the silk shirt with leather sleeves, the petalled multilayer brown organza dress, the blue leather jacket set with black cut leather skirt and the blue patchwork embroidered dress with multi layers. Two superbly crafted evening gowns ended the show – one in black with a wide layered skirt and embroidered top and the other in burnt gold sheeting with drapes and front slit.
For dramatic haute couture, Shradha Murarka and Ninon Palisse from Vizyon offered mysterious seductive creations with their “Enlightened Shadows” collection.
