This is what Preeti Chandra wants to say through her collection. She presented a very dramatic, exciting and dynamic collection titled “Matador Chic”. The collection takes us back into the sixteenth century in the courts of Spain, where the torero was known for his flamboyant elaborately decorated ‘ Traje de Luces’ or the ‘Suits of light’. The fabrics used were silk rich with intricate embroidery and the use of jewels, jewel led buttons, heavy girdles and collars, capes and corsets, Exquisite dabka and intricate embroideries on silks. There are see through garments with delicate roes embroidered that give an element of beauty and oomph and the well cut gowns fall so beautifully. The jackets worn by the matadors have been transformed into feminine ones. Preeti has very artistically interpreted the matador outfits in a very chic and wearable manner. It’s the old world charm brought alive with contemporary silhouettes.
