The Woolmark Company brought together six fashion designers from India and Pakistan who showcased key looks for the upcoming season, inspired by luxurious, lightweight Merino wool fabrics at LFW.

Designers Nachiket Barve, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Rahul Mishra, Troy Costa, Gaurav Jai Gupta and Pakistani designer Omar Farooq each presented a collection that highlighted the versatility of the trans-seasonal fibre.

“Nachiket Barve, known for intricate surface details in his clothes presented a collection called Tulipmania, inspired by the delicate flower,” a LFW press release stated.

“The versatile Cool Wool fabric was reimagined for eveningwear and occasion wear through this collection, in a way that's glamorous yet sensual,” the press release observed.

“Merino wool as a fibre has been inspiring my work over the last few seasons consistently and I got a chance to work more closely with it during my nomination for the International Woolmark Prize,” Barve said.

Gaurav Jai Gupta showcased wool with an interesting array of blends through a collection named, Mumuksha, which consisted of separates for both women and men along with sarees.

Rahul Mishra's collection was inspired by metamorphosis in life and was titled 'Fourth Dimension'.

“The Fourth Dimension is an essential tool to revisit the past through Merino yarn and human hands in a world ruled by technology, and fight the constant time and space to look into the future,” Rahul Mishra said.

“This is to preserve the unseen hand of the skilled artisan who painstakingly beats technology to infuse individual hand skill in creating a couture expression of the fourth dimension,” Mishra added.

Rajesh Pratap Singh, known for his understated designs presented a simple yet flawless collection highlighting the fluidity, drapability and versatility of Merino wool.

Oversized silhouettes were predominant in the collection and many garments were reflective of traditional Indian costumes but with a modern twist and relevance for today's man.

There were tunics in grey reds and oranges that added a burst of colour to the otherwise indigo palette, while the ubiquitous white shirt and tunic also found their place in the collection.

Popular celebrity designer Troy Costa, famous for dressing Prime Minister Narendra Modi presented his collection inspired by La Bella Figura.

“Literally meaning the good impression, it was marked through structured silhouettes of bespoke tailoring,” the press release informed.

Pakistani menswear designer Omar Farooq unveiled 'Oriental Opulence', a collection of embroideries, jacquards, knitting, embellishments and printing to create rich textile, bringing traditions to contemporary fashion.

“Taking contradicting forces and realising their complimenting nature; toying with negating dynamics, to create harmonising effects, Oriental Opulence is an attempt to look for divinity amongst the earthly,” Farooq noted. (AR)
