Dolly J has used indigenous silhouettes with a twist for Spring Summer 2012. The palette showed gradation of yellows amidst gold. The designer talked about the two extreme sides of modern women—the timid shy woman and her bold outrageous counterpart. Somehow, they looked the contrasting facets of the same woman, who knew to behave or misbehave according to the situation. The basic surfaces were patched over with huge crotchet panels and then highlighted with embellishments. The shapes were a cheerful mix of loose backless jumpsuits, voluminous palazzo pants and off-shoulder pleated dresses. The diagonal panelling accentuated the construction detailing. White and black amalgamation looked realistic. The prints were in a horizontal arrangement. Sleeves were exceptionally long in transparent fabrics. Brown trousers teamed with self coloured embroidered tops looked enchanting. The boleros were long and cropped in transparent and opaque mediums. Circular skirts had larger than life flares. Prints looked desirable with mustard and off-white spread over on the black base. Another highlight was the use of gold sequins.
