"India. Its vibrant colors, embroidery and love of gold embellishments can be a great way to get the creative juices going. For spring, it informed Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, and boy did they embrace the country in all its glory. In the show notes, the duo cited the Sixties, when the Beatles turned to the Maharishi as their spiritual guru, as their inspiration. 

But they approached India so literally — draped dresses with elaborate surface adornments, colorful saris, midriff-exposing ghagra choli — one almost expected an elephant to come down the runway or the models to break into a Bollywood dance number for the finale. That’s not to say the collection didn’t have its high points. Many of the pieces were exquisite, including a languid, white draped gown worn with gold-embroidered illusion tights and the last tulle dress in silver embroidery on Carolyn Murphy.”
