Priyal Prakash’s collection “Linea” was all about going back to basics and forayed into the evolution of garments through structured lines.


The collection aimed at being a conceptual contemporary mix between Western and Indian clothing, with the basic idea of using straight and angular lines to draw out silhouettes for both styles.
Keeping the colour palette to muted hues such as grey, brown, rust gold, deep mustard and black; the line showcased unusual silhouettes, which were structured, with emphasis on human body parts like waists, arm sockets, neck, as well as the torso area to break the female body form down to geometric components.
Fabrics such as Bhagalpur tussar silk, organza and other Indian handloom fabrics were used to balance out the structured shape of the pieces, which were a collection of dresses, gowns, kurtas, saris and lehengas.
The piece that stole the audience’s breath away was a lovely one shoulder kaftan gown with fabric and bead work on the bodice replicating the warp and wefts seen on fabric.
Experimental with beautiful ingenuity, Priyal Prakash’s collection “Linea” struck the right cords and left the audience in awe.
