Fusion coordinates

Madhu Kamath unveils an exclusive fusion studio line for the festive season, combining the western silhouette with an Indian look


WHEN IT comes to shopping for festivals, especially formal wear for pooja, one finds too little time, too many options and a great deal of confusion. Nowadays when exclusive designs are a norm, you would do well to check out a limited studio line.

Design concepts from Madhu Kamath's MK Design Studio for the festive season features "a fusion line combining the western silhouette with the Indian look especially for the younger generation which is not really into ethnic wear," says Madhu. "Post festival, the coordinates can be fused with denims and pencil skirts for formal dos and club wear. We have explored three different silhouettes that flatter the Indian woman who is adaptable and modern in her approach and wants to make a lasting impact. She, however, is still very proud of her rich culture and understands that her character originates from there."


Topping the three style options is the crepe silk splash-dyed short kurta embellished with Swarovski crystals, multi-coloured threads paired with boot-cut trousers and complemented with a stole trimmed glass bead edgings, ideal for pooja.

Chic black trousers offset with a magenta Benaras bustier and an elegant jacket is an attractive alternative. A crinkled crepe metallic copper fitted skirt with a drawstring top in black with contrasting silver gold and copper detailing completes the ensemble.The USP of the line is the structured look, elegant embroidery and colour palette. "This line encapsulates the season in all its essence with wild splashes of colour. Mostly evening wear , the same ensembles, when created in pastel hues, can be used for daywear. One can opt for the entire ensemble, co-ordinates or have it customised," says Madhu.

The festive studio line is priced between Rs. 3,500 and Rs. 7,000 and available at MK's Design Studio, 8-2-331/10/A, Road No. 3, Banjara Hills, Tel: 23555040, 55577550, 98480-40065.
