Paper meets fabric
Rimzim Dadu’s ‘My Village’ SS 2012 was all about textures, structure, pot pourri, sequins and space age.
The show witnessed a combination of 3-D structural forms, cut work, appliqué work and sequins with fabric, paper and acrylic, what looked like homage to Hussain Chalayan. A notch-collared jacket with oodles of floral textures was followed by a sequence of cut work inspired garments paired with transparent acrylic over coats. Full length ice-blue skirt was teamed with giant bow while another look witnessed bows teamed with textured skirt. Washed pastels in faint tones of white, powder blue, mint and coral in dresses later transformed into a revolting colour palette of bottle green and blue with neon dragonflies scattered all over the skirt. A particular garment witnessed acrylic shapes steadily transforming into a butterfly near the hemline. It was followed by a maxi dress with pleated front and back and sequined side panel, concluded by a couple of acrylic over-coats with geometric cuts revolting in blue and green.
The outfits were beautifully styled especially the bold paper mache shoes and bright candy colours engrossed in white surface.
