Now, we are almost at the end of 2020’s first quarter, so let’s take a look if some of these trends from 1920s will make a comeback.London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and the ongoing Paris Fashion Week show an interesting blend of uber feminine elements such as frills and drapes with strong androgynous silhouettes.
Says Hyderabad-based fashion designer Dipti Mrinalini, “The empowered wearer is going to express with power shoulders, comfortable trousers with drop waists and drawstring puff sleeve dresses-essentially, unexpected combinations of work and streetwear in strong yet soft fabrics.
For example, Indira Devi, the then maharani of Cooch Behar and former princess of Baroda set her own royal fashion trend by wearing silk chiffon saris.
Talking about classic saris as the trend, fashion designer Gaurang Shah says,“Think of the signature nauvari drape, with a long jacket blouse, of the then maharani Chimnabai of Baroda.
Or a sari draped like a gown, reminiscent of the style attributed to Suniti Devi, then maharani of Cooch Behar.
