Autumn in the Old Town - WLIFW Fall/Winter 2008

Nostalgia isn't what it used to be
- Peter De Vries

Sucheta Merh’s inherent inclination to romance with design is reflected in her Fall/Winter 2008 Collection, which derives its inspiration from the rustic charm of autumnal tenor and palette. What emerges is the nostalgic mood of a young girl revisiting her ancestral home, reminiscing, endearing experiences.

The sunrise, amidst a playful herd of sheep and departure at sunset reflect the gamut of emotions which make for playful joy...

The colours of the Collection are naturally autumnal, where yellows, camel and brown are highlighted with creative inclusion of purple and orange. The fabrics used are naturally soft, silk organzas, cotton nets, chiffons, woven georgettes, fluid jersey and soft washed satins.

Straight silhouettes reflect the relaxed and laid-back mood of the theme, whereas the layered ensembles symbolise the complexities of the nostalgic mind Renewed classic shapes have been created with a focus on flowing capes, floating panels, jackets and relaxed silhouettes. Layered frills and lace effects has been used to emphasize the girl-woman conflict of the collection. The look is sophisticated with textured and printed motifs on natural fabrics.
