Young designer Masaba Gupta took quirk to a new high with her latest Autumn-Winter 14 line for Satya Paul at ongoing Wills Lifestyule India Fashion Week, with motifs ranging from tap, safety pins to pair of scissors. Based on the idea of deception, the collection didn’t consist of the usual neons which is a typical of the designer but rather boasted of deeper hues. The motifs were borrowed from everyday life like water drops, taps, scissors, and hands holding safety pins, glass of water.
“The idea was deception which was presented using a lot of daily life motifs. I also used a lot of dark colours this time like pista, blues,” Masaba said after the show.
The collection also saw the use of colour blocking which is again a Masaba favourite.
“I really love the idea of colour blocking. It is my signature. I feel colour is as important as embroidery. Garments tend to become more lively with colour block,” she said.
The silhouettes ranged from maxi dress, jersey capes, mini dress, pullovers, button down shits, skirt sarees,
pleated pants and leggings. The ensembles were accesorised with back packs, vanity bags, clutches as well as burgundy coloured rexine hair bands.
“I love the metallic effect of burgundy. That is why I used it on the ramp as well as the heaband,” she frther added.
Masaba’s mother Neena Gupta and actress Soha Ali Khan, who were both dressed in the designer’s creation, cheered her on from the front row. Padama Shre awardee designer Wendell Rodricks was also sported sitting in the front row during the show.
