Rutbaa 2012, too highlighted the latest trends along with a an electrifying performance by Punjabi folk artist Arif Lohar. Rutbaa, the two-day long fashion and lifestyle musical extravaganza showcased collection by Rimple and Harpreet Narula.

Arif Lohar, who turned famous after Jugni from Cocktail became a hit, invited members of the audience to come on stage and participate with him. The popular artist also sang Mitti deya baweya and Sohniye from his albums.

The latest collection by Rimple and Harpreet Narula is an amalgamation of textiles, technique, craftsmanship, form and function.

“It draws heavily from the  world of cultural influences, Persian civilization and its art. This formed the central theme of the collection. Inspired by the rich heritage of our textile, crafts, as well as traditional embroidery arts from all over the Indian sub-continent, the collection had something for everyone,” explains Harpreet.

“The new collection was an endeavour to combine our passion for fine clothing with a refined aesthetic and also functionality, so as to offer something completely different and unique from what is already available to our consumer, something totally excl­u­sive for the new festive season,” adds Rimple.

A rich and vibrant colour palette featuring indigo blues and lush blacks tempered with neutrals like beiges and camels,  accentuated by the use of vibrant reds, an interesting mix of antique and modern fabrics, immaculate detailing and finely detailed embroideries were the hallmarks of the collection, making each piece stand out.

Nidhi Anand, director Woodpecker Hospitality who hosted the event later said, “We are humbled by the response of our patrons.”
