Self textured fabrics pleasantly included in Ekru Bio
Mar '08
The audience's voyage began and ended in the time of the Italian Renaissance.

This historic era known for its master artists and for its significant design elements functioned as the main design inspiration source for the coming fall season of the label Ekru Bio. The era was reflected through the extensive usage of tapestry motifs in the collection.

The characteristic ornaments had been transferred into complex pattern for prints or individually placed motifs to highlight parts of the garments.

The kind of handspun and hand-woven silks and cottons which were selected for the range took strong reference to the indigenous Indian crafts in textiles.

Subtly self textured fabrics were used in natural tones ranging from darker ecru and pebble and sand to softer browns.

Some clothes were smartly constructed with the use in directional panels in order to enhance the hand-woven character of the fabric.

Deep burgundy used for small linear trimmings such as bindings and pipings contrasted pleasantly with the earthy colour palette and the raw textures.

This latest fall/winter collection of Charu Parashar is a statement for Indian craftsmanship techniques blended with the finest textiles to reach a level of contemporary luxury.
