Ritu Kumar Couture SS 2013 WIFW
Imagine a fashion show runway ... with LED screens showing the story of a garment from start to finish ..... and then Shammi Kapoor ( an Indian/Bollywood film idol from the 1960's) serenading on screen with the super hit Bollywood song " Baar Baar dekho, Hazaar baar dekho, ke dekhne ki cheez hai hamara dilruba " ( Glance again and again, glance a thousand times, because my sweetheart is worth looking at ) .... there is smoke on the runway ... and Tango dancers wearing sarees doing the Cha Cha to "baar baar dekho" come out of the smoke curtain ... the mood is set for the swinging sixties .... and needless to say ... everyone in the audience with a drop of Indian blood in their veins ... are instantly singing and cheering on the models sashaying down in free flowing and elegant silhouettes !! We were spellbound by the extravaganza .... the music and the clothes seamlessly came together in the most fitting finale to Wills India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013 !

RITU KUMAR COUTURE SS 2013
The COUTURE half of the show draws inspiration from the Indian Freedom Movement and the colonial era and dips into the romance of the 1930's. Using the rich design heritage of Ritu Kumar Couture, the collection draws from the European influence on Indian royalty during the pre-partition period. This results in the use of rich tapestries, laces, brocades and embroideries. The interpretation of the theme uses expert workmanship of the atelier. It carries forward the vintage mood of the LABEL ( see here ) segment but in its Indian avatar. The geometric motifs form graceful curvilinear feminine lines of paisleys and chintzes in luxurious colours.The collection ends with a regal collection of gold, black and jeweled ensembles reminiscent of the India of the mid 20th century with its Baroque influences and distinctive style of Indo European fashion. - Press Release
