Varun's French connect with Bollywood

ANWESHA MITTRA | Jul 23, 2011, 11.58am IST

Touted to be a grand affair with some truly exquisite designs and loads of Bollywood, Synergy1Delhi Couture Week, the second edition of the couture week, neither lived up to the 'couture' expectations nor could it justify a rather crammed venue. 

Though it is worth a note that the venue, The Taj Palace, Delhi, was done up aesthetically with burning torches lining up the entrance on either side, a deck of red scented candles burning in one corner of the foyer and a spattering of displays by Manish Malhotra among other designers. 

The wait was endless, the first couturier, Varun Bahl, was yet to showcase his creations, and the chatter about Madhuri Dixit walking the ramp was still in the air. Little wonder, no one seemed to mind the wait. But just as the lights went dim, in walked the diva with her entourage while being ushered to her seat by FDCI President, Sunil Sethi. Looking every bit the stunner she is even in the fading light, Madhuri exuded class in an ivory Anarkali kurta with colourful floral patterns on the bust, with little or no accessories, not to mention her easy, charming smile always in place. 

Varun's knack for fusing the classic Western silhouettes with traditional Indian designs was reiterated in his latest line that attempted to bring alive an era of French courtly debauchery. We couldn't help get reminded of his previous couture collection 'Anastasia Found', which too had grandiose velvet jackets teamed with conventional lehangas, sarees and churidars. The designs were so familiar, and so were the colours that one began to wonder what new Varun had in store. So much so, he repeated his showstopper too, model Tinu Varghese, with his most elaborate design. 

Theme: The designer's muse for this range was one of history's most celebrated and berated queens, Marie Antoinette, whom he portrayed with flowing lengths of air-like tulle, shimmering damasks and cascading chiffons teamed with dramatic jackets and corset-like structures. He kept the Indian aroma alive with lehangas, farshi-pajamas and Anarkalis while the colour palette progressed from a decadent pistachio hue to deep, drunken wines and maroons, and glamorous gold's to pure ivory shades. While the drama on the ramp was on, we had scenes from the French countryside playing in the backdrop. And, full marks to Varun for the presentation and some truly neat silhouettes and cuts. 

Collection & silhouettes: We didn't miss out the pink velvet asymmetrical jacket worn over green lehanga with dazzling golden embellishments. There were a few other interesting jackets and blouses, particularly the dramatic-sleeved one in aubergine colour and the backless blouse with full netted sleeves and heavy thread word around the wrist. 

The second leg of the show was a lavish display of whites with lehangas, netted white sarees and parallels teamed with majestic closed-neck jackets and flowy lace jackets. Model Pia Trivedi looked a show-stealer in a grand green lehanga teamed with pink choli and dupatta with gold work. Noyonika Chatterjee's green corset blouse coordinated with red lehanga was refreshing. The girls all sported suede footwear, be it pumps or boots. 

Accessories: Kundan jewellery found prominence in Varun's collection with chandelier earrings and neckpieces created by Khanna Jewellers. 

Glitzy front row: Among designers who had turned up to cheer for Varun were, Ritu Kumar, Namrata Joshipura, Poonam Bhagat, Rohit Gandhi, Rahul Khanna, Manav Gangwani and Rohit Bal. While Madhuri may not have walked the ramp, she was every bit the showstopper, for the audience sat glued to their seats well after the show to take another long look at the ageingBollywood beauty.  (Can't blame them..who wouldn't want to look at a Goddess???Embarrassed)

Varun Bahl opens Couture Week; Madhuri cheers


New Delhi, July 22 (IANS) Designer Varun Bahl opened the second edition of Synergi1 Delhi Couture Week with a collection which was an amalgamation of Indian and royal French culture. Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit graced the show not as a showstopper but as a spectator.

Dressed in white anarkali with minimal jewellery, Madhuri stole the limelight despite being the guest on the show.

Although the show started an hour late, the designer lived up to the expectation with his collection which was a contemporary interpretation of enduring classics. He kept the Indian aroma alive with a touch of French royalty.

The collection was inspired by French queen Marie Antoinette. It had lehengas, anarkalis, farshi-pyjamas, and sarees. Majestic jackets and corset-like blouses similar to what was worn by the queen provided the backdrop of two cultures meeting together. The traditional French music in the background added glamour to the show being held at Taj Palace Hotel.

The shades varied from green, pink, red, maroon, white and cream. The fabrics ranged from velvets, chiffons to satins. Another highlight of the show were velvet shoes that added elegance to the costumes.

After the show, Madhuri was overheard appreciating the designer for his creativity. She was heard saying, 'It was a beautiful collection.'

The front row was also occupied with Varun's designer friends like Ritu Kumar, Rohit Bal, Rohit Gandhi-Rahul Khanna, Manav Gangwani and Vijay Arora.

My first fashion show was for Ritu Beri: Madhuri Dixit

Dhak dhak girl Madhuri Dixit Nene was the centre of all attention when she arrived for designer Varun Bahl's opening show on Day 1 of the Synergy 1 Delhi Couture Week.

She was in the capital after a gap of 12 years for a fashion show. However, she chose not to walk the ramp and instead sparkled in the front row as a guest for the designer. Talking to us about her association with Varun, she said, "I've known him for a couple of months and I really like his design sensibility. Since I am petite, his delicate embroidery and silhouettes really suit me."

While Madhuri told us that she's not always been very fashion conscious. "It's only because of my work that I got to learn about fashion. The world is moving on and you have fashion from all over the world here. It's a fantastic time for fashion." But, it's Mads' confession that had us a bit surprised. She said that Varun's was the second fashion show ever that she attended in her life. The first one was for designer Ritu Beri about 12 years ago, and that too in Delhi. She told us, "The first fashion show I ever attended was for Ritu Beri in 1997 or 1998. I think that was the first time Ritu had designed for one of my movies Yeh Raastein Hain Pyaar Ke". She had done a show in Paris and she had done the same show in Delhi. It was very eclectic and I love the way she combines colours and makes them flamboyant. I had really enjoyed the show."
