Sheer Grandeur

When the East and West met

Magnificent: Rohit Bal's collection. DH photos by dinesh s k

“My collection is called ‘Yashasya’, which means glory in Sanskrit,” Rohit Bal told Metrolife, prior to the show. “It is all about the glory of India, it’s past and present, as our country used to be called as the ‘Golden Peacock’. It is full of Indianness,” he said.
While Rohit’s collection was completely Indian and showcased the grandeur of the Mughal era, Gauri and Nainika’s collection was just the opposite. “Our collection is very vibrant and full of cocktail dresses. It’s also got tweeds, which are thick woollen dresses,” explained Nainika. “It’s dramatic because of the cuts and colours used,” she added.  The two pretty ladies, who admitted that they are huge fans of Rohit Bal, were extremely excited to be in the City.

The show began with Gauri and Nainika’s collection, which consisted of gorgeous dresses, which probably most girls would have dreamt of owning. The vibrant colours and luscious fabrics enhanced the beauty of these dresses. Two of the most beautiful dresses of the collection were long gowns in peach and grey. Short dresses in maroon, blue, purple, black and grey complemented the entire collection.

Rohit Bal’s collection was equally mesmerising. Showcasing the royalty of the Mughals, the ‘salwars’ and ‘kurtas’ in off-white and white, stole the show. The velvet patchworks in maroon, gold and red stood out on these white dresses. The surprise package of the evening was Namma socialite and danseuse Vani Ganapathy, who was the showstopper. As she gracefully walked the ramp in a white and maroon dress with Rohit Bal towards the end of the show, she won the hearts of all.
