Two designers gave their individual interpretations for jewellery design and amazed the audience with their creativity at the India International Jewellery Week 2012.
He is known as the innovator who is not afraid to tread on the unknown path. His inspirations are unique as he constantly pushes the envelope to amaze the viewer. Blending tradition with modernity Laksh has created memorable pieces under his signature trademark.
Outstanding creativity comes naturally to Laksh, who crafted eight masterpieces for the ramp that evoked thunderous applause from the audience. Calling his collection “Patriotism, Peace and Passion” dedicated to the nation, the pieces that appeared were:
YEAR OF THE DRAGON – had a silver and gold fire spewing dragon head piece which curved on the model’s head.
TIMELSS TITANIC – was the final piece – a draped model of the Titanic in diamonds and silver over one shoulder as a necklace was extreme creativity.
Hailing from the princely state of Rajasthan, Anand Shah of Ansaa Jewellers considered amongst the top ten designers in the world along with his partner Kantilal Shah, showed a stunning collection at the India International Jewellery Week 2012.
Known for his famous peacock necklace, which has inspired many, Anand’s line was a study of nine fabulous pieces. Anand opened the show with a half necklace in three different jewel tones attached to the right ear.
Soon there were multiple circles in Technicolor for the neck while spindly ones were for the bangles. The draped floral necklaces over shoulders in beautiful colours, the snaking wide bracelet, the cross over half Kundan and half carved necklace and earrings took the audience on a truly mind blowing creative journey.
The inverted tower necklace-cum-collar in gold, rubies, Polki and the cinched paper bag inspired cuff proved that Anand was totally in command of his unconventional designs. The flat choirboy collar neckpiece and the armlet which curved over the upper arm were pieces of intense creativity.
The wildly meshed floral cuff and cluster of gold with coloured gems had a startling effect on the audience as they stared in disbelief at the grandeur of the ornaments. But the best was yet to come when Sonali Bendre, the show stopper, sashayed in wearing a carved lacy neck piece and cuff which had 84 interwoven peacocks in multicolour.
It was an evening of intelligent, creative jewellery designs that made the audience applaud the genius talents of both Laksh Pahuja and Anand Shah.
