Ace designer Payal Pratap's latest collection aptly titled Twist in my Sobriety lit up the runway at the 28th edition of AIFW. Pratap, who has styled the likes of Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, showcased over 30 garments, which featured a huge use of stitches in patchwork and crocheted patterns.
Each garment saw a heavy use of floral work and the silhouettes, slowly moved from saris, jackets, dresses, peplums, jumpsuits, dhotis and cropped boleros. Talking about her collection, Pratap told: "I just called it a Twist in my Sobriety. I just wanted to do something from my heart and I felt to work with monal tones and neutral tones...For me a red and blue is neutral. So I wanted to keep it simple and clutter-free, but at the same time I am fascinated by craft embroideries, stitches."
The designer used fabrics such as linen, cotton, silk chanderis and khadi. "The silhouettes were inspired by India Modern and global...global traveller... So the inspiration came very naturally to me," she said. Before Pratap showcased her collection, designer Anavila Misra showcased her latest collection When I look back tomorrow from her eponymous label.
