Archana Kochhar’s collection called “Mumbai Checkmate” was showcased on the ramp at Lakmé Fashion Week 2013. Mixing bold black and white checks with solids, Archana had a vibrant colour palette with neon yellow, electric orange and candy pink highlighting the ensembles.
The collection included jumpsuits to voluminous kaftans, gowns, flowing dhoti style pants and floor length Anarkali, lehengas, patio pants worn with clinging body suits and sarees.
The show stoppers were Shazahn Padamsee in a voluminous Lehenga, choli and elaborate dupatta and Prabhu Deva wearing a shaded brown/grey jacket grooved down the ramp to the beat of the band. Nice collection with a number of outfits that we would buy in a flash.
