Rajesh Pratap Singh’s grand finale collection ‘Bespoke Tales’ expressed the progression of the fine art of making clothes as seen by the ingenious tailor. Models emerged from the wide background walking through the unfinished muslin garments hanging in a surreal fashion. The detailed collection was splendid with a fabulous combination of creativity, originality and simplicity showcasing strong craftsmanship.
The collection exhibited a vibrant colour palette of red, cobalt blue, grey and black with a scatter of checks in black/gray/white. Patches of checks were highlighted with additions of leather here and there. The silhouettes were long/short jackets with asymmetrical hemlines fitted bodices and worn over pencil trousers, short tunic dresses, flat bed knitted cardigans, shorts and fitted dresses.
Detailing was innovative with cascading neck ties, double sided collars, innovative pockets, off shoulder neckline, leather cutwork, thin fabric waist belts, lazer polkas cut outs on fabrics. The ensembles were accentuated with exquisite jewelry made with crystallized Swarovski elements. The collection was wearable, chic and elegant at the same time.
