designers Rixi Bhatia (of Quirkbox fame) and her sister Tinka and their half Full CURVE label, a brand created for women who have been ignored by most of the fashion fraternity for long.
The show — devoted ‘to the sexy, voluptuous, goddesses of the world’ — opened with a poem that spoke of promoting body positivity and encouraging women to be their own kind of beautiful.
Designers Rixi and Tinka chose models of all ages: The youngest on the ramp was 19, and the oldest in her 80s.
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 wild flower motifs, delicate embroidery and pastel hues being the leitmotif of the collection.
The silhouettes were vintage, wearable and chic. Popular shapes were the draped lungi style skirts worn with jackets and the cowl kurtas teamed with multi-coloured covers.
Women prove age is just a number – 18 or 804
