Staged in the beautiful Glass House space with knock-out gorg...views all around, the cross-cultural mixed of sheer sari - like swaths of chiffon, detailed embroidery and hand beaded trims--- fused with edgy leather biker pieces (the use of leather was very American...but hey-Sheena is a punk rocker, according to the Ramones)....added up to apparel that was all very original.
The well attended presentation was arranged in three themes---India Gate, Transition: Cycle Rickshaw...and...Into The Night" New York---this last group-comprising a lot of dance club worthy ensembles just right for Williamsburg or Bollywood.
Many tops and skirts---were of mixed leather/silk georgette-an interesting combo... and in general---we thought that Trivedi def has a distinct take on apparel.
