Urvashi displays slouchy & stiff silhouettes at WLFW
Mar '13
Retaining the designer’s signature style the A/W–13 collection titled FEZ presents a relaxed aesthetic characterized by ethnic nomadism. It showcases elements of minimalist luxury in an autumnal palette of russet leaves, amber yellows, forest greens, petrol blues, sand and sky greys.??

Paired with an interesting crushed fabric texture and rouching technique, the collection offers deconstructed layering in loose shapes, innovative folds and fluid drapes. Healthy mix of slouchy and stiff silhouettes create a perfect balance.??

Engineered placements of twisted tie dye technique evoke the Bandhej tradition. The dip dyeing effect and feminine ombre over dyes along with a generous use of metal create mosaic style patterns which lend character to this line up.

Tailored with precision, the forms are assertive. The silhouettes come alive with the use of hand woven textiles such as matka, tussar, chanderi and linen silk. Refined fabrics like light weight wool cashmere and modal jersey with silk fibers and chiffon lend textured fluidity to the collection. ??

Tunics with asymmetric folds and hemlines, angarkha inspired djellabas and long billowing draped dresses are the mainstay of this collection. Peplum vests, blouses, wrap jackets and overalls along with Moroccan shalwars and loose oversized pants confirm an unmistakable nomadic theme.
