Her construction is Atithi Gupta’s forte and her clothes at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2010 had that retro feel. With the French word “Recherche” which means “to look ahead” and driving the designs there were great fabrics like chiffon, wool all texturized and draped to turn into jumpsuits, dresses and jackets.
Keeping the futuristic look with a touch of the past; the colours moved from green, orchid purple, coal, pink, and blue and then on to stark grey and black. The silhouettes were unconventional with structuring and cuts playing a major roll. Playing with pleats Atithi designed them at the side, back, on shoulders, yoke, centre, stitched them or kept them loose on the garments.
The highlight of the show was the angular pleated Capri jumpsuit in silk which was a scene stealer. For some unconventional ensembles that are comfortable but stylish then Atithi Gupta has the right answer.
