LFW sees “Between Smudged Lines” from Karishma Jamwal
Aug '13
A splash of urban existentialism against effervescent patterns of art is what donned the runway at Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive ’13, where designer Karishma Jamwal showcased her latest collection “Between Smudged Lines” under her very own label “Lotus Sutr”.

Having always had a penchant for art, Karishma is of the opinion that one of the best forms of its interpretation is through the various textures and patterns of fabric. Her collection, which was unveiled, had an urban bohemian look drawing inspiration from urban art paintings.

The collection made use of urban themes including graffiti, old Indian watercolours and geometric patterns all fused into a vibrant and earthy gamut of colours.

A seamless blend of the bold and the beautiful, with graphics that stood out yet mingled with smudged water colour paints, Karishma Jamwal’s collection had been inspired by Jill Ricci’s art form of harmonious coexistence. The palette varied from sky blues to mustard browns to sunset oranges and tangerine with draped jackets and floor length togas. Fringed detailing and an urban bohemian feel completed the look.

Speaking about the collection, Karishma said that it would appeal to the younger generation as well as the more mature middle aged women, in fact anyone who could appreciate the magic art could create on fabric.

Lotus Sutr, her design label, fulfills her passion for art through fabric. It is a conduit for manifesting her myriad thoughts. The collection, titled ‘Between smudged Lines...’, derives its inspiration from the rawness and unfinished nature of an artists canvas.

The complexity of an artist’s mind is expressed through the incompleteness in the prints, which are blended with the kitsch silhouettes which completes my look. The colour palette is made of more earthy, terra firma tones infused with bright, vibrant shades which come together to form contemporary drapes.
