Rahul & Shikha show long forgotten hand crafted techniques

Bringing to the forefront of fashion, the ancient soul and inspiration of traditional craftsmanship, the ‘Vrisa’ label by Rahul and Shikha Mangal presented “Charkha” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013. It was a collection that revealed the beauty and hand crafted techniques of garment tailoring that had long been forgotten.

With old techniques blending seamlessly with contemporary styling, the designer duo used natural fabrics like cotton, silk, linen and turned them into utterly wearable creations that will appeal to the global buyers.

It was a line of magnificent kalidaar kurtas, wide circular skirts, long angarkhas which layered over the kurtas for a swirling fluid collection. The dress with bolero and lehengas with side slit kurtas were initially in shades of white, beige and ecru, which later moved to grey/black for Jodhpuri pants, short tops, kurtas and lehengas. The intricate embellishments and fabulous craft of India was the focal point of the garments.

For creations that present fashion and style backed by socially responsible movements, the “Charka” collection by Rahul and Shikha Mangal had a lot of soul and emotion.
