This month has been all about Diwali and festivities so obviously I had to work on something special for my readers while retaining the essence of the most enjoyed feature on my blog – FuFie of the month. This month we got a young and upcoming designing talent to lend her magical touch and dress up our FuFies in her beautiful Indian wear. We picked up varied styles of clothes to showcase the wide array of possibilities with Ethnic wear. From a Lehanga to a Sari to a Salwar Kameez to Lehanga Sari to Indo Western is a wide range our designer Dimple Shroff is working with. She integrates different kinds of materials beautifully to bring out the vivid colors in the garment.
Dimple started her label -“Label D”
six years ago after graduating from NIFT Mumbai followed by a specialization from FIT New York. She then went on to intern with Shantanu & Nikhil and gained practical and hands on experience in the fashion world. Now she is running her own store and slowly but surely trying to make a mark for herself. Though, I feel she could also be a model but she insists on continuing as a designer
While discussing clothes, we also picked her brains on trends and stuff.
Excerpts from the conversation:
FUF : As a run up to the festive season, which has been the trend in maximum demand at your store?
DS : I am seeing a lot of people asking for layered looks like Lehenga with Jacket. Straight cut suits with churidars are also being picked a lot. I make them in bright velvets and people are loving it.
FUF : What are the trends seen in fabrics this year and what is your personal favorite
DS : A lot of Net and Velvet is being used. I personally love working with Sequin sheets and Velvet. Sequins for its mere glitter and bling. It works very well with other fabrics and can hold on its own too but you just need to know how much to use unless you want to look like a walking talking billboard
Velvet is royal and classic. Team it up with some great embroidery & it looks magical. The best thing is that most of the embroidery styles, be it zardozi, gotta, thread or kundan look great on this fabric so it offers me more flexibility to work with
FUF : What’s your take on fusion of Indo – Western look
DS : Well, I think it’s there to stay for long. This trend has emerged very recently and gives the comfort of wearing western with an Indian touch so works very well for today’s generation.
FUF : Any particular Color trends for Indian wear this year ?
DS : Surprisingly Neons are in demand. Even the brides are shifting from age old maroons and reds to Neon greens, brights pinks and blues. Make way for the New – Age bride
It was a wonderful experience for FUF and Dimple’s clothes were as pretty as she herself is. I will present the FUFies of this month in Label D tomorrow so keep reading FUF & Stay stylish
