New Delhi Fall 2008 Fashion Week - Charu Parashar

India has been celebrating their Fashion Week this week with some spectacular collections. I love how Indian designers retain the cultural integrity of their dress by using traditional fabrics, techniques, and styles of garment. Charu Parashar's Fall 08 collection was rather a fusion of the traditional with lots of European elements.

These are a bit of both - European brocade fabrics worked with unmistakable Indian flair, particularly in the opulent third look.

And here we see a bit more other cultural influence sneaking in, with the minidress and particularly the gorgeous short brocade coat. But lest we forget where we are, the final piece goes back to traditional roots, albeit in a highly dramatic way.
