The verdict favors the velvet sweep! The New York fashion week for fall 2011 hailed it as the biggest trend for the season and the rest was a smooth walk for all things velvet.
Designer Abhishek Dutta feels the reasons that are giving velvet the fine edges are “ The fabric’s versatile nature works in its favor, It is precisely an autumn favorite, because it gels well with the weather’s mood and has loads of visual appeal. From the classy look to the grunge effect, it brings out the best of both with élan”. Going by the trend, the designer sketches out a couple of complimenting looks. “Not long ago velvet signified red carpet aura, now is the perfect time to revisit that.
On a classy note, a floor touching low cut one shoulder velvet gown in dark tones with a dull copper brocade corset underneath it can spell elegance with the capital E. You can never go wrong with a velvet jacket over a soft silk shirt. But if you want to know what’s really hot at the moment, then the answer is – SKINNY VELVET TROUSERS. Pair it with a French tulle silk top or a well fitted jacket and you are set to be the head-turner of the day. “He suggests.
Designer Nill too affirms the revival and says, “A velvet maxi skirt with the high neck top can work fine or simply get into casual dressing with a velvet jump suit. Crushed velvets are a hot favorite with most designers as it has an old world charm. You can take the style to a different level by flaunting velvet accessories, especially a belt.
Nill favors the fabric for the ethnic bridal wear category. ”Trousseau line is once again basking in the velvet effect. To look the perfect bride, go for deep shades, a sleek- fitted lehenga, embellished with burnt antique embroidery and crystal work, a net dupatta with subtle embroidery will complete the look.”
