A word of advice: If you ever get a chance to pick one designer whose show you get to attend at Fashion week, let it be the one by Rohit Bal. Year after year, his shows prove to be an experience that's not just about the clothes , but the energy, the aura and the drama he manages to create on the ramp. This year at WIFW Spring Summer 2015 , Rohit had an offsite show at Quli Khan's tomb, with the Qutab Minar in the backdrop- titled 'Gulbagh' meaning ' A garden of roses' , inspired by the flora of Kashmir. Maybe it was the haunting surroundings, maybe it was Shubha Mudgals voice echoing through the nip in the air, maybe it was the outfits but this was by far our FAVOURITE SHOW. Hands down- and so worthy of a finale.
Now we have seen florals this year- A LOT of them, but Rohits spin on florals was bold, graphic , unique and beyond gorgeous. Just exquisite Kashmiri embroidery on soft, flowy mul-muls . Peplum tops with lehengas in off white and gold , his signature long achkan jackets all came together to create outfits that were so chic, contemporary yet rooted in Indian tradition . Sigh- major closet envy happening for whoever gets a chance to wear these on their functions.
Womens wear at Rohit Bal
Always have a soft spot for whites. Love the peplum silhouette with that full, voluminous skirt
Gold and white, with a gorgeous, glistening cape. New favourite accessory for winter- the cape on a sari!
The raspberry red floor length anarkali on the right. So perfect for your sangeet.
Love ALL these peplum lehengas !
Like the different print and embroidery peeping out from under the lehengas
A classic, Rohit Bal bridal lehenga. Love the tiny choli.
