Bringing to centre stage the essence of Assam, Pranami Kalita’s label ‘Pariah by Pranami’ was a visual treat on the ramp. Making her debut at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016, Pranami worked wonders with Muga, Eri and Paat which were all ancient silks, that are well-known in Assam and combined them with materials from other parts of India.
The fashion show launched with a beautiful white and gold lehenga/choli/ dupatta trio, which has been followed by a red/ivory lengthy kurta and splendid red silk stole. Sleek trousers, sheath along with cape, one-shoulder gown and off-shoulder slim outfits kept the mood of the show rich in fashion. Boleros and pleated skirts with cape blouses and the black/gold cross over kurta teamed along with a lehenga added grace to the collection.
Adding classic Assamese motifs to spotlight the clothes, Pranami used embroidery as well as weaving methods to build a romantic, elegant but lasting look. Promoting ‘Slow Design’, which is certainly handmade by local artisans the collection was obviously a honor to crafts people of the North East region.
The final fantastic electric blue silk and gold outfit was a ideal Red Carpet entry.
