Myan concept of the world's end inspires Ken Ferns
Aug '12
Ken Ferns gives fashion his distinct stylish elements at Usha Talent Box. Ken Ferns fascinated the audience with his unique experimental collection inspired by the human psyche.  
With Rorschach inkblot test-like patterns, the pieces sported original patterns made by the designer himself, making use of digital art textures.  The pieces sported three dimensional forms, with construction being the main focus and were beautifully showcased on jackets, blazers, dresses and gowns with a tasteful blend of hard structure with a feminine soft touch.   
Looking into both the lighter and darker side of the human mind, the designer’s colour palette comprised toxic yellow and smoky grey with hints of orange, blood red for highlighting.   
The pieces were made in rich fabrics which ranged from silks to velvets, crepes and georgettes in a treated form, to make them unconventional and yet have an original feel.  
Leather and stones helped to accentuate the pieces, keeping them at a minimal level for his fine detailing to stand out.  One of the highlights of his collection was a number of butterfly wing-like jackets. Complimenting his ideas, the Lakmé salon experts worked with tightly tied hair, black lips and blackened eyes for a dark yet elegant effect.  
Avant garde yet wearable but downright stylish, this collection by Ken Ferns is for the brave – of heart and soul.
