Art Deco Dreams

Pretty pastels with 30s flair
For his latest collection, designer Rashid Malik mixed things up with seasonal colours and geometric details. It felt like a show inspired by the Art Deco movement of the 30s; the dresses were strong and striking, while retained the traditional flare the RDC bride wants. The line-up included his classic hand-embellished phulkari, which was broken up by pretty pastel pieces adorned with caged crystal sleeves and abundance of beads. Malik didn’t forget about the brides who love his lush floral embroideries. Crystal appliqués were scattered on skirts and delicate 3-D flowers bloomed on dupattas.
