India Today - - SIMPLY GUJARATT -

AS THE 'RED CAR­PET gown' gets on to ev­ery fash­ion­ista's wishlist, Di­pali Shah, 39, makes sure that the wish gets ful­filled through her gowns and dresses for oc­ca­sions rang­ing from lun­cheons to farm­house par­ties and wed­dings. “Dress­ing in Ahmed­abad’s so­cial cir­cles is very for­mal. Gowns are fem­i­nine, el­e­gant and also con­ve­nient,” says the self-taught de­signer who was among the first to in­tro­duce gowns to Ahmed­abad four years ago with her la­bel, Di­pali Shah Haute Cou­ture. Some of the pop­u­lar trends ac­cord­ing to Shah are “fish­tails, straight cuts for work, min­i­mal flair dresses for day­time and dhoti drapes” but she can also cus­tomise ac­cord­ing to your needs. She pre­dicts that the year ahead will see a lot of “fem­i­nine colours like bub­blegum pink and mauve” in gowns. For the cur­rent sea­son, she’s bring­ing in crepe silk, satin, Swarovski work and lace for those look­ing for a touch of lux­ury. “The 80s look is back with frills, bell sleeves and

one-side shoul­der gowns,” she says. AT 41, Spring Field, Judges Bun­ga­low Road, Prem­c­hand Na­gar So­ci­ety, Bo­dakdev
