Designer Masumi Mewawallaa��s prA?t collection is all about the subtle colour
Designer Masumi Mewawallaa��s thirst for pink began sometime last year when her clients custom-ordered bridal wears in shades of pink. a�?Thata��s when I realised that there was a massive demand for this colour, and that people were willing to experiment instead of sticking to the usual deep maroon and red for lehengas and saris,a�? explains the 23-year-old Mumbai-based designer who incidentally is a commerce graduate by qualification. a�?Designing happened quite by chance when I made something for my mother for her wedding anniversary. It was a very simple elegant sari with a heavy border and some floral designs. Everybody loved it and this incident gave birth to my label last year,a�? she says.
That pink is almost every girla��s favourite is proven by Mewawallaa��s new collection. Short dresses, gowns, skirts, palazzos, jumpsuits, play suits, and frocks; the a�?Pink Peacock Couturea�� prA?t collection has it all. The collection signifies how the colour is incorporated with the lustrous fabrics and linens to bring out graceful and dainty ensembles. a�?Pink has always been my colour, and because ita��s summer I thought of playing with a light mono-colour,a�? she says.
The magnificently structured floral designs and the shades of pink make the collection look beguiling. a�?The designs are very English. We have used finely cut roses in a darker shade of pink and kadgana work to give the dresses a sophisticated look. It can make for good resort wear or for brunches, movie dates,a�? she says.
