It was a show devoted to the sexy, voluptuous, goddesses of the world. The Half Full Curve collection was displayed at 6Degree Studio on Day 1 of Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018.
The ‘Half Full Curve’ label, is the brainchild of Rixi Bhatia (of Quirkbox fame) and her sister Tinka. It has been created for the stylish Plus Size women who have been ignored by the fashion fraternity for long.
The label aims women to flaunt their curves and that is what the collection was all about. Aimed at real women of varied sizes and shapes, the ensembles inspired by nature were devoted to Luxury Resort wear for the coming season.
The show opened with a lovely poem that spoke about promoting body positivity and encouraging women to be their own kind of beautiful.
The fabrics were a mix of pure georgette, sheer Chanderi, Dupion silk and splashed with bouquets of flowers in thread work, sequins, beadwork and lots of appliqués. The emphasis was on textures with a profusion of wildflower motifs, delicate embroidery and pastel hues being the leitmotif of the collection.
The silhouettes were vintage, wearable and chic that would allow the fashion-forward women to choose apparel from dawn to dusk. Popular shapes were the draped lungi style skirts worn with jackets and the cowl kurtas teamed with multi-coloured covers. Metallic came to the forefront in the shape of dhotis and palazzos.
Designers Rixi and Tinka encouraged women to be body positive and confident in their skin. It was a collection that proudly announced “My Body My Choice” which will make the wearer the stylish Diva she is.
The youngest model on the ramp was a perky, 19-year-old, while the eldest was a mature lady who will turn 81 in two months.
The show stopper was the very elegant fashionista, Anjana Sharma who glided down the catwalk in a kimono style cover and sleek gown.
