On the opening day of Lakme Fashion Week, five creative & talented emerging designers showcased their collections.

Aditi Holani – Juxtaposing Fashion

Her label is called “Shoulder Lab” but Aditi Holani believed imperfection is an ideal state to be in. “Wabi-Sabi” the collection’s theme revealed relaxed human imperfections. The fabrics ranged from silk jersey, silk linen, to silk suede, and satin. The winter fabrics in light weights with an organic colour palette of tan, off white and grey, with hints of neon was a good mix of hues. Putting an emphasis on the cuts, there was certain fluidity in the silhouettes, which will appeal to the intelligent dresser.

The “Wabi-Sabi” collection had extreme detailing touches where fabric strings had a major role in highlighting the asymmetrical sleeves, necklines and fronts of dresses. Colours played hide and seek with Dysmorphic patterns, for draped dresses and maxis. Layers appeared to surprise the viewer, while embroidery at times marked out a design on the skirt of the garment. From lean to fluid the creations had an absolutely indefinite silhouette, which moved from relaxed to slightly moulded that created intriguing appeal on the ramp.

The solitary sari too followed the look of the theme with the pallav emerging from an unexpected point and teamed with a shirt collar blouse which gave the combo a youthful fashion direction.

For women who want to cause a stir at any event with their dress sense, the “Wabi-Sabi” collection by Aditi Holani will keep the audience amazed at the many creative touches emerging from each ensemble.

Aiman Agha And Armaan Randhawa – Dual Tone Directions

Creatively playing with just black and white, Aiman Agha and Armaan Randhawa presented a collection that was in perfect Yin and Yang harmony. Inspired by the owl, a creature of the night, the black and white theme fitted perfectly into the story. Cuts and silhouettes blended with optics and lines, when created from fabrics like cotton satin, duchess satin, twill, striped cotton and dotted prints. From stylish parallel trousers to elegantly constructed jumpsuits and striking gowns with extended shoulders, the look spelt feminine sophistication.

The Op-art black and white maxi with a one-button long sleeve black jacket was a smart opening for the line. A mix of striped weaves and plain was used beautifully for the garments. A jacket and skirt in the mixed story, the owl embroidery for a maxi with intricate front pleats, the flying owl embellished coat, the peplum top gown and lean maxi with extended wing shoulders; created a fine black and white vision, which was stark in the colour choice but futuristic and very stylish in the construction.
