Designer Gogee Vasant showcased her collection SWAN, at India Resort Fashion week 2012 in Goa, last evening. It was a colourful mix of swimwear, bikinis, cover-ups, maxis, hooded kurtas for men and everything else one would need for a resort holiday. The designer incorporated intricate detailing, silhouettes and fabrics that came together in perfect harmony on the catwalk.
The swimwear was colourful while the fluid pants, trendy dresses and elegant gowns offered a cross-section of options to the fashionistas by the seas. Georgette and crepes gave the immaculately styled beach wear a classic look, while the matching accessories added to the look and feel of the garments.
Menswear started with simple black and white shirts and pants in comfortable shapes, but ended with colour and sheer hoodies, as well as shirts in smudge prints of yellow, blue, red and green.
To the lively beat of the very popular Lynx band from Goa, the models sashayed down the ramp in black and white polka dotted bikinis and shorts that set the pace of the show. Soon there were skirt shorts and elasticated tops with power sleeves, black petal bikinis and sheer covers, ponchos with beaded yokes and black and white striped colour blocked asymmetric tops. Kimono covers, bubble skirts with pin dot print and brocade edged flouncy skirts, crushed chiffon slit pants and asymmetric gowns and jumpsuits in black and white were great resort wear options.
While the predominant shades were black and white colour came in great profusion to end that show as three layered chiffon halter gowns in black and white, a trio of abstract maxis and two sultry bronze and gold floor length numbers molded to the skin, were the highlight of the show.
Gogee’s three stunning show-stoppers were actor Purab Kohli, actress Hazel Keech and Nicole Huber, Miss Paraguay 2011.
