The success of her Lakme Fashion Week collection – “I love My Doodle Book” – encouraged designer Aarti Vijay Gupta to extend the line for resort wear. The new collection for India Resort Fashion Week 2012 included interestingly constructed jackets, flowing pants, two piece ensembles, paneled coats, vests, shorts and stylish jumpsuits.
The doodles were transformed into eye catching digital prints, and proved to be well suited for resort wear… the graphics didn’t overpower the interesting cuts, or construction, of the garments. Detailing came in the form of high necks, structured jackets, and sharply cut & finished silhouettes.
The jackets were worn with printed or plain pleated trousers, snazzy shirts, and even some colourful shorts worn with waistcoats (both with and without lapels). Fun!
