WLIFW Spring 2013: Taika By Poonam Bhagat

Comment image 7

A Slice of Samarkand and A Bite of Bukhara was the theme of the collection presented by Poonam Bhagat under her label Taika. True to the theme, we saw Suzani embroidery presented in the form of dresses, vests and long robes with white, red and black being the predominant color scheme.

My favs from the collection, the jumpsuit and the vest.

  1. Love it. Wearable AND original*.

    I can’t really see the Masaba influence at all. The designer is cleverly playing up the symmetry of the print against the asymmetrical cuts of the clothes, which I really dig.

    *Now I’m just praying that I don’t see this and discover it’s an “inspired” copy of another European/American designer. It’s a cynical outlook, but there are several precedents of this phenomenon.
