It’s been a print deluge this season. Isn’t it? Right from floral, tea cup, geometrical, ornamental, and tribal prints, you’ve probably sailed the season, hearing and wearing prints, prints and more prints. Well, we are not done yet, the fashion gurus still have an ace up their sleeves. In the international scene designer Erdem Moralioglu is known for his penchant to explore this flavour. Ladies, it’s time to make room for abstracts in the prints galore. Like art, fashion too is allowing creativity to be interpreted by going abstract. Designer Meghna Garg refers to model Claudia Schiffer, who drew a lot of attention in her black and red printed dress. She says, “They signify that there is no set pattern, rather a splash of colours. The only thing that should be kept in mind while making this choice is, to go for a minimalist approach. With such designs on the fabric, you can never go wrong in a short dress or a frock with high hemlines.” For designer duo Riddhi and Siddhi the two words that instantly come to the mind while talking abstract is, “Bold and vibrant!” They feel, “Since abstract prints don’t follow any regular pattern, they tend to give a contemporary and versatile touch. Even conventional prints get an edge once it undergoes the abstract affect.” Counting on its utility factor, the designers recommend “a liberal use of such prints all over the dress.” They add, “Opt only if it isn’t too loud, else mixing abstracts with colour blocking is a good idea.” Here the shade card accommodates all, from happy bright hues to sober pastels. “Instead of prints, colours have a prominent role here. Now that gives you the license to go on colour spree. But, remember not to over do it. Blend a couple and perhaps add one more shade on soft flowy silks or georgettes. Go for a sleek look and completely forget the frills for now,” says designer Medhavini Khaitan.Source: Deccan Chronicle
