The Good and Bad from WIFW SS'14: Masaba Gupta

A lot has already been said, so let me come straight to the point. The clothes are beautiful ( well some of them exceptionally are) and color palette is summery (pinks and blues), yet a perfect balance of designer and her label's personality , that's where the splash of gold and black comes in. The only flaw that I see here(look at the pictures below) is, the fit of the show stopper dress could be much better ( finally, I also said it). Yes, the dress is perfect and suits the young and ever so effervescent, Alia Bhat's personality and  Masaba's  design sensibility( what she is really known for). BUT....

My Take on the Look:
Now let me exaggerate(  hehe..) My degree in Fashion gives me leverage to be a little critical ( obviously in a constructive way). I think that length of the dress is too long for Alia, it should have been till her calf, with the kind of footwear she is wearing, it's clearly looking odd. Aesthetics of the whole look goes for a toss if these things aren't given attention, specially for a show as grand as this one.
Fitting too seems to be an issue here( refer to the pic where Alia turns on the ramp), I cannot ignore bulge on the back.Also, Backstage crew could have used a bit of steam ironing on hemline of the dress. All of that together is clearly making this a MAJOR Fashion Faux Pa.


Trend Alert:

Our favorite Gen Next Star designer is clearly obsessed with Dots, black and white stripes( make a note of that, Monochrome is still a Hot Trend ), Summary hues of Pinks and blues, Interesting Avant Garde bags are a few Spring Summer'14 Trends you can pick from Masaba Gupta's latest Spring Summer'14 Collection, showcased at the WIFW SS'14.
