Dewan, famous for her patchwork and unconventional cuts and stitches, does not fail to blow our minds with her latest spring wardrobe. Comprised of dhupian, cotton and ramie cotton, her spring collection includes high-voltage fusion wear, traditional saris, tote bags and khussas. The styles aptly range between regulars to informals, appropriate for any soiree, garden party, holud or mehendi, or even the regular dinner affairs with family.
The collection is definitely vibrant enough to lift the moods, and comfortable enough to be worn both as day or night wear. The details of the appliqué work, the kantha stitch and the sequins embedded intricately onto the dresses promise to steal everyone’s attention.
The shrugs, capes, halter neck blouses, skirts, high-waisted pants, colourful dresses, suave tops definitely highlight the trends favoured by vivacious millennials and their strong inclination towards contemporary fusion wear.
But that does not mean Dewan overlooked the vintage admirers and the tradition enthusiasts!
For them, she has a fascinating assortment of vibrant saris that range between flamingo pink to subtle beige, and dusty orange.
And if you thought this is where she stopped, you certainly got it all wrong about the whiz designer, because she meticulously placed kantha stitch prints, real appliqué flowers and shokher hari inspired motifs, all over the base, adjoining it with colourful borders and anchals.
Dewan also keeps the unisex styling in her mind while designing straight cut panjabis. These panjabis, when paired with a floral scarf or a printed orna, look marvellous on the ladies even as office wear and the men can easily don them, minus the add-ons.
What’s best about this designer is that her fashion house, Chondon, is a one-stop fashion solution for all occasions; one can get sophisticated jewellery to traditional Jamdani saris to shawls and juttis.
So, if you consider yourself a fahsionista living in Bangladesh who values deshi products, Chondon should be a must-visit shopping store on your list.
Otherwise, you will miss out on one heck of a fashion bounty.
Essentials — Chondon is located at Road 103, Plot 9, Gulshan 2.
