For Spring Summer 2012, Jyoti Sharma brought together some elements from our surroundings, to come up with a collection that was more structured and panelled. However, one could notice a sense of intimacy and intricacy. The designer has re-invented the elements existing around us, and then mixed and matched them to suit the surfaces. Her creations portray a fresh thought. The designer defines the monumental beauty and succeeds in making it look elegant. The silhouettes revolved more towards traditional wear, involving dhoti pants, tunics, etc. Few of the western shapes and silhouettes had that contemporary touch to the collection. The multipanelling was more in the anarkali
format. At times abstract motifs were made to look floral in a subtle manner.
Cutwork was co-ordinated very well with dhoti pants. Embroidery motifs were in a 3-dimensional manner using threadwork and beads. The fabrics were organic in whites, burnt oranges and greys.
The hairdos were experimental—the pony tails thrown sideways caught everyone’s attention. The music, which started with water droplets sounds, needs a special mention as well.
