March 14, 2011, Mumbai: “Marrakesh”, a dream summer resort destination for the jet setting fashionistas, turned into an inspiration for Pria Kataria Puri for her Summer/Resort 2011 collection at Lakmé Fashion Week.

An expert at creating holiday wear with exotic prints, Pria’s Moroccan mélange of colours gave that vintage textile feel to the collection. The colour story was dramatic with a generous play of off white, yellow, orange and apple green creating a romantic rainbow with teal green, teal pink, burgundy, navy and of course black which is the colour of the night.

Working around her favourite silhouettes that gracefully moved from kaftans, maxis, tunics, dresses, blouses and saris, Pria added that glamorous touch of glitter with local mirror work and crystals along with large doses of silk tassels and unique Arabesque prints.

The fabrics were rich chiffons, silk, crepe, georgette; satin, velvet, jersey and tulle which gave the seductive touches to the daring breezy beach wear creations.

In a fast paced show and keeping in tune with the season, Pria opened with a red bikini and a sheer printed cover. The resort look continued throughout as a line of the most colourful kaftans in varying lengths floated down the ramp with silver embroidery at the waist, neck or yokes; while tassels were used to decorate the hemline, sleeves, neck, collars and even the ankles of the shoes.
The stunners were the mustard satin shift; the halter asymmetric toga with crystal collar, the black printed mini with extended shoulder frills, the dazzling silver embroidered green kaftan, orange satin one shoulder gown, the dramatic black mini with embellished bodice, followed by the tiny crystal bikini.

Two saris in green and black with tiered petticoats and tiny crystal cholis added that ethnic touch to the collection.

The show stoppers were the vibrant celebs – Namrata Barua-Shroff in a crystal encrusted gown and Perizaad Zorabian-Irani wearing a silver mini.

With colours that were dramatic and silhouettes that had that perfect touch of resort glamour, Pria Kataria Puri’s “Marrakesh” collection was undoubtedly the ideal fashion destination wardrobe.
