Two Designing Duos – Khushboo Agarwal – Prem Kumar and Pranav Mishra – Shyma Shetty Presented Innovative Garments at Usha Talent Box During Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012
Kushboo Agarwal and Prem Kumar Revealed their Exciting Collection at Usha Talent Box
Mumbai, Sunday, August 5, 2012: Khushboo Agarwal and Prem Kumar presented a fiery show with their new collection aptly christened ‘Dark Romance’ under their label Khem.
Blending in French Baroque influences along with the concept of ‘The Tree of Life’ this range blended in both careful constructions with softer touches for a collection that’s simply mesmerising. Feminine, soft fabrics such as georgettes, crepes as well as silk cottons helped link Indian traditional fabrics with a cosmopolitan touch.
The pieces made for interesting forms, which sported bead, mokaish and badla work which was an infusion that aimed to give traditional art a modern edge. The range displayed an array of dresses, jackets and gowns in a subdued colour palette comprising shades of grey, green, blue and black. Romantic with an edge, rich colour infusions were in blood red, bottle green, royal blue, espresso and plum.
A piece that stood out from the collection was a ravishing blue-green dual toned shimmering number, which was accentuated by a bolero jacket.
Complementing this range perfectly the Lakmé makeup experts kept the models’ looks fresh with long eyelashes for a youthful, mysterious appeal and upswept hair styles.
A dance in the dark, a beauty to behold this range by Khushboo Agarwal and Prem Kumar is sure appeal to the fastidious buyer’s inner desires.
Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty Added their Stylish Touches to Garments at Usha Talent Box
Huemn, as a brand by Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty has always strived to top itself at each fashion week.
The designers went back in time and took a page out of their previous collection only to come back with an electrifying new range titled ‘When the Lines Move’. Known for their strong structured silhouettes, this collection forayed into the experimental by displaying constructed designs, which managed to still appear fluid and flowing.
Using fabrics such as leather, felt and crepe, the designs made their way onto the runway in a muted colour palette comprising nudes, browns along with pale pastel shades of green and blue. With the concept being ‘structure caught in between flow’ the pieces were further built on by using sheer fabrics, adding a feminine touch to structured tops; while strategically placed cut outs as well as shoulder slits added a subtle funky edge.
Keeping the embellishments at a minimum with only soft embroidery work, the range took a unique twist, which was simply decadent.
To add to the feel of this collection, Lakmé salon experts worked with streaked lips and cat eye makeup, along with a stylish upswept look for the hair.
Gorgeous and well defined, the stunning collection by Pravnav Mishra and Shyma Shetty will leave the global women wanting more.
