Sisley makes a debut at the Lakme Fashion Week,
The Sisley label is one of the trendiest in Europe and sets the fashion pace for smart, elegant, ready-to-wear.
They presented its Spring/Summer 2007 women's and men's wear that will be hot sellers. A newcomer to the Indian market, Sisley's styling is cutting edge, which will enable the wearer to make a unique fashion statement with its mix and match options.
The women's wear was divided into four lines—Sexy Puritan, City Blue, Ethnic Chic and French Open. Here there was a cross-section of minis, figure hugging dresses, blouses, trousers, jeans, semi formal wear, sweaters, jerseys, and rhinestone touches with occasional floral creations inspired by the 60s thrown in.
Sisley not only has a wide range of garments for both sexes, but a line of accessories like bags that range from back packs and courier bags to pretty evening clutches. Shoes are part of the Sisley story—so there were wedges, cord, leather or raffia—and belts added that zing to the garments designed in plaiting, knots and interlocking. Caps, scarves and costume jewellery completed the Sisley line, which gives a complete wardrobe solution for men and women.
Sonam has proved that season after season he can keep the beauty of global themes fashionably alive with his skilful touches.

Shyamal and Bhumika’s Autumn/Winter 2007-08 collection titled Geometry was a fine, controlled collection with just the right touches of styling and drama. The adornments of the garments is what Shyamal and Bhumika scored, as they added handwork detailing and embellishments, which gave a perfect union of theme and craft in just the right proportions. Shyamal and Bhumika’s fashionable lesson in Geometry will definitely thrill the fashionistas in the coming season
Giving a new fashion statement to the tribal prints of Saura, Godaba and Bonda from Orissa, Nikasha Tawadey’s Urban Myth collection was a perfect line that blended rural motifs with urban styling. Keeping to the western wear format, Nikasha’s embellishments were unconventional with beads, chains, coin work, shells, animal claws and chains, which matched the theme of the collection yet fitted in admirably with the layered smocks, jackets, some sexy off shoulder draped tunics. Blending craft and stylish women’s wear will make Nikasha Tawadey’s Urban Myth line one of the intelligent collections of the coming fashion season.
For Autumn/Winter 2007-08 Giovanni's collection was a marvel in knit—he showed his expertise as he manipulated the yarns into unbelievable moulds and drapes. Giovanni's haute couture knit line will undoubtedly appeal to lovers of avant grade fashion of a very high international fashion order.
