Colours are an integral part of the garments at Biba. They define the overall look and give identity to the outfit. The latest collection includes a mix of ‘kurtas’, tunics, skirts, ‘salwar kameez’, fashionable and trendy bottom wear.

     The design team has worked around the ‘Spring Summer’15 and ‘Holi’ line which includes exotic outfits in a kaleidoscope of colours varying from soft pastels to vibrant solids in different shades and hues, showcasing a perfect range for work casual and party wear.

    The design team say that the garments are done keeping the festivities in mind. “In this collection colourful geometric and contemporary motifs have been used to give an appeal to outfits. 

    “The collection boasts of cuts which are a mix of modern and classic. Chic indo-ethnic outfits like- skirts, short ‘kurti’, maxi look ‘kurtas’, long ‘anarkalis’, fun bottom wear are the main statement look of the collection,” explain the design team. “We always try to highlight one or a mix of two aspects in the garment at a time, be it the cut, print, work, colour or the fabric,” they add.

The garments  are for women of all age groups such as homemakers, working women and college students. “Our experiments with the style and cut, give liberty to people to play around with the look and do a lot of mixing and matching. This ‘Spring Summer’ range has a collection called ‘Sufiyana’ in which we have used different types of fabrics in different lengths  and prints which give the  layered effect and add alot of style,” says the design team.

Accessorising depends on the kind of outfit.  “With ethnic wear, though traditional jewellery works best, contemporary jewellery gives it a modern twist. One should never overdo the look but try to keep it minimal,” conclude the design team.
