His experiments with fabrics

There’s neither boredom nor stagnation when it comes to designer Paresh Lamba. He always has something new to offer and believes that there’s a lot to explore when it comes to men’s wear.

 Paresh has now gone a step further and has introduced a new line in women’s formal wear. 

“Do you know that some of the best women’s formal suits are made by their husband’s tailor? I am often asked by women to recommend a good place for tailor-fit garments. Or they ask me to make one for them,” Paresh tells ‘Metrolife.’ When such queries increased, Paresh decided that he would, for the first time, venture into women’s formal wear. This was unveiled at his new store on MG Road recently.

 The women’s line will include classic and sharp formal wear ensembles like pants, blazers, skirts and shirts. “The City is clearly lacking in classy, attractive formal wear and I’ve decided to fill in that gap,” feels Paresh. 

About his designs, Paresh says that he lays more emphasis on plain texturing than on embellishments and heavy work. “My designs are less ornate and more subtle. It’s easy to work on a loud design. It will make for a fabulous garment but one must bear in mind its wearability,” says Paresh. 

Paresh works with a wide range of materials and no two shirts that he creates look the same. He experiments with all kinds of fabrics, linen being his favourite. There are variations in a particular fabric. Cotton for instance comes in linen, satin cotton, lycra cotton, lurex and cotton with a polyester blend. “A lot of people don’t like wearing cotton because it get crushed but I think cotton shirts are meant to have that crushed look. It’s original and sleek,” he points out.

Paresh’s new store has been designed and conceptualised after a lot of thought. Walk into his store and the first thing that catches your eye is a runaway. “Yes, it was a conscious decision to make a runway. This is to showcase my latest collection through a fashion show as and when the collection is ready. I would host my clients and guests at the store rather than in a hotel. It will be restricted to a handful of people,” he explains. The store will also provide the largest in-house bespoke tailoring service.
