BABITA MALKANI'S METAL-MORPHOSIS CREATED A NEW GENRE OF FASHION FUSION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2011

Babita Malkani's inspirations can emerge from almost anything and her shows have a lot of pizzazz and excitement. Last season the Baul dancers of Bengal were the finale for the inspirational collection by Babita.

This time sculptor, Arzan Khambatta's lit metal installations lined the ramp as Babita's "Metal-Morphosis" collection for Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2011 was sent into the arc lights. Presenting a line of jackets, dresses, saris, tunics and palazzos, Babita embellished them with metal pieces, nuts, bolts, screws and metal sheets to form unconventional designs on the garments.


Spread over three looks that were arranged into colour stories, Babita's collection was magical on the catwalk. Starting with wine, burgundy, onion pink, black and charcoal with specially created rust dyeing forms, the designer had drapes with interesting structures.

Draped tunics were seen with machined waistcoats, sarong skirts appeared with grey basic tops and pleated wrap dresses were lean and sensuous in form. Maxis were layered, shaded halters were sexy, asymmetric hem dress was delicately detailed and the wide black pants with the one shoulder top were followed by a half sari drape over slinging leotards.

Babita then followed this with off-white, beige, peach, nude, black and charcoal using clamping and dyeing techniques for a relaxed line of clothing.

The sari gowns with ombré colours, the sheer pants with abstract silhouette and print for the tunic, layered dress and the many togas with sari like drapes were striking entries.

Finally it was the flowing line of dresses again in wine, charcoal, black, taupe and Prussian blue tones which were a mix of the earlier two colour charts that revealed beautifully tailored evening wear. Opening the section with a printed sari and metallic embellished louse, the sheer churidars and mini, the halter and palazzos, the brown jersey gown with embroidered shoulders and the organza asymmetric tunics were great formal options.

An interesting touch which featured in most of the ensembles were the extended hemlines that looped up to the waist, neck or the shoulders in the front or back. A mention has to be made of the jewellery made from the various steel pieces and the platform shoes with innovative heels, which fitted into the metallic theme of the show.

Babita's choice of the show stopper was the very fragile beauty Bollywood's latest darling, Kalki Koechlin in a grey crepe gown with embroidered multi straps and bodice; who gracefully glided down the ramp.

When it comes to giving fashion a new twist and an unusual inspiration then Babita Malkani will once again score with her very graceful Metal-Morphosis collection.
