Bold and beautiful


IT IS that time of the year when you love to do shop-hopping. If you are looking for designer clothes, visit Amethyst, situated at Sundar Mahal, 14, Jeypore Colony, Padmavathi Road, Gopalapuram, where an exhibition of creations by Raghavendra Rathore, Sunita Shanker, Kanish Bhargava and Kiran Uttam Ghosh (Kimono) is on. Raghavendra Rathore's range of menswear brings forth the sensibilities of Rajasthan to modern fashion design. The rich hues will aptly complement the sunny side of the wearer.

The colour palette of Kanish Bhargava's chikan creations is inspired by Nature. He has borrowed the flowering and ripeness of fruits to decorate his garments. The cuts are simple yet classic, with no stiffness emphasised on the finish.

The Kimono look, for the bold and the beautiful, comprises figure-hugging ensembles with deep necklines, higher slits and daring colours.

Sunita goes in for the traditional bandhinis. In silk, crepe and polyblends, the creations come in earthy colours and some of them are embellished with the typical Kutch or Rabri embroidery for that stunning look. The line is uncluttered and wearable, and the accent is on elegance.

Paper linen, napkins and party accessories are also available.

For details call 28351627.
