'Wrapping Up' Da Goddess.

How to wrap a Goddess.
The third day of WIFW opened with all attributes of glamour when Amit GT presented his collection for fall 08/09.
The evening wear range comprised satins and crepes in dramatic colours with well-placed crystal embellishments to highlight the feminine figure.
Fur, which was used for high necks and shrugs, gave a lovely impression of skating on ice. The colour palette included bold red, bright fuchsia, smoky aubergine, soft nude, jet black, pure white and silver lame - just right for the lady to stand out in the limelight at a big social event.
The dresses were constructed to highlight the feminine contours through narrow waists, corsets and bustiers, flowing floor-length skirts and trains which additionally added drama to the styles.
Details such as pleats, centre front rushing or gathers were used to shape the gowns and additionally embellished with crystals for a sparkling effect.
What turned out to be the key piece was a black satin gown with pleated bustier, emphasized empire line and a black and white skirt extension which spectacularly trailed behind to occupy the ramp.
This collection convinced through its goddess-like silhouettes and its apparent reminiscence of the great gowns from the 1950s.
