According to Narresh, the actress' swimwear wardrobe in the
Anurag Kashyap-directed film shows the bold Parsi women in Bombay
of the 1960s.
"We have designed Anushka's swimsuit for the film. It was fun
designing for her because it is a vintage collection as we love
doing such range. It will show the bold Parsi women of Bombay in
the 1960s," Narresh told PTI.
Bombay Velvet, based on historian Gyan Prakash's book
'Mumbai Fables', stars Ranbir Kapoor opposite Anushka. The film is
scheduled to release next May.
The National Institute of Fashion Technology graduates had last
designed Katrina Kaif's outfit in the poster of recently released
Bang Bang. Shivan and Narresh were here today to showcase
their beach collection on day three of Wills Lifestyle India
Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015.
Through their collection, they brought the colour palette of
American sculptor Alexander Calder's design story alive.
"We did an extensive research on Calder's works before coming up
with this collection. We reinterpreted his kinetic sculptures to
the human form with precarious crafting and adaption," Narresh
Models sashayed down the ramp in bikinis, trikinis, sarees,
jumpsuits in hues of black, moss, yellow and red. The designers
said that Indian women should wear swimmers more often and should
not go away from it.
The collection saw prints inspired by Calder's eye and his
colour blocks. "Indian women are shorter as compared to the West.
So, if they will wear high slit beachwears they will look tall.
Being conservative is not the mantra of looking good," Narresh
