    Punit Balana ensures that the theme of his collections always revolve around glamour. For Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019 Punit’s collection called “Rabari” was an ode to textiles and amazing embroidery created by the Rabari women.

    Punit’s USP for his creations has always been his exclusive block prints, organic dyes, colours, eco-friendly techniques and silhouettes. The colour card was dominated by black along with dry henna and buttercup, which will be ideal for the coming festive season of Ganapati and Diwali.

    The glamourous creations would also fit into the wardrobe of the brides for the coming wedding season, when the ladies shop with their entourage for the Mehndi/Sangeet as well as the biggest day of their lives.

    The amazing embroidery that Punit selected was intricate Amla, mirror work and Dori work that added to the glamour of the creations.

    Opening the show with the only full black, heavily, embroidered skirt and shirt, Punit moved to a black and white spaghetti strap maxi, lehengas and saris with mirror work cholis. Moving to the bright yellow look, there was Bandhani for lehengas, saris, kaftans, trapeze top with skinny pants and an eye-catching jacket teamed with a full-flared skirt and shirt.

    For the henna colour card, there was the fluid printed angular dress, a delightful lehenga choli with a soft robe that ensured that the ensembles would be ideal festive favourites. Stripes and checks too made an appearance and blended beautifully with the concept of the very exciting collection on the runway.

    Saris were worn with stylish kurtis trimmed with giant latkans; while kalidar kurtas and shararas with empire line kurtis made fashion news.

    To the foot tapping beat of two drummers, showstopper Shilpa Shetty made a rocking entrance as she swished down the ramp in a swirling, shimmering, lehenga and a dazzling mirror work halter choli, accessorised with giant latkans and a potli bag.

    For women who long to emphasize the stylish diva within, then the “Rabari” collection by Punit Balana will ensure that the ladies make their show stopping entries wherever they go.
