The afternoon prêt-à-porter shows on Day-3 were opened by designer label Khaadi Khaas which showcased their luxury prét collection “Translucent” at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2016. “Translucent” is inspired from the asymmetrical form of nature; where each element is unique on its own – yet as a whole looks alike. Swarovski crystals, pearls and acrylics were the focus of this collection along with the fluidity of different translucent fabrics. The monochromatic palette with pops of neon and pastels all added to the dramatic feel of the pieces, especially with the use of sharp angles and cuts. The collection celebrated the different facets of each Swarovski crystal, while alluding to a sense of symmetry and balance to ultimately create a cohesive composition. Cleaner sharper lines around the silhouette reflect a more tailored look for this collection. With experimental symmetry, in both patterns and placements, the collection manifests the role of transparencies – where solid and sheer fabrics meet to create varying densities. The collection featured wrap detailing, voluminous pants and subtle see-through effect on silks, organza, georgettes and Khaadi handwoven fabrics.
