Last night, Avni Trivedi presented a gorgeous collection titled "Midsummer Night's Dream." Her designs were exactly what I would want to wear on a hot summer's day! She layered, gathered, and draped pastel and forest colored silk to create airy pieces that brought to mind fairy dust and dew drops. Each look had names like, Lemongrass, Meadow Nymph, Buttercup, and Violet Sprite. I thought the cropped pants with satin criss-cross detailing were great laid-back pieces and the finale dress, a silk one-shoulder gown with a crystal studded train, was beautiful.
Her garments were made of fabrics that are 100% naturally dyed with herbs and flowers, wholesomely carrying out her woodland theme and taking it to an eco-friendly realm beyond the runway. The colors and patterns she used were earthy and feminine...a perfect fit for spring! Trivedi used spectacular tie-dying that was original, yet organic and subtle. I also loved the hairstyling! This summer, I tried to be creative with my hair, trying different braids and such, but these styles were so divinely intricate!
