Vivek Kumar’s collection for his Ritika label was a stunning line called “Kirtimukha” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013.

“Kirtimukha” which means protector deity and a threshold guardian has dual appearances, which were reflected and rendered beautifully by Vivek in his collection.

The contrasting aspects of the inspiration brought on the runway, a line of long gowns and shifts with a metallic surface ornamentation that had a serene feel through the relaxed cuts.

The skillful blend of handmade knits with Indian textiles brought to forefront, the dualism of divine bliss and worldly desires along with a renewed fashion story on the ramp.

Using the gorgeous textiles of Assam featuring Moonga/raw/Matka silks, cotton, linen and georgette; the collection had a luxurious, formal look. Cuts were fluid as well as structured to match the contradicting theme of the ensembles.

Complex embroidery was in custom designed metallic yarn, block printing, zardosi and sequins work was added to create the striking impact. The ornate yokes with velvet and heavy embroidery revealed Vivek’s distinct style statement.

Bringing the Indo-West theme alive, Vivek showed floor skimming shift dresses and gowns that looked utterly regal and feminine in a subdued earthy colour card of muted pink, red, green, maroon, blue, along with dark tones like coffee, wood, black and rust.

The clever mix of woven fabrics with knits for sleeves or yokes of gowns gave the collection a very intriguing feel. The mustard panelled midi with sheer sleeve, green pinafore over red knit Tee, sequined midi over knit shift with beige/red velvet appliqué, gold asymmetric pinafore over red/brown blouse and the black gown with cutwork bodice gave a fusion direction to the collection.

To further emphasize the theme of the show, the Maatha Pattis on the heads of the models gave them a goddess like appearance that fitted in with the mood.

The “Kirtimukha” collection was a stylish but slightly aggressively feminine collection that made a bold daring fashion statement from Vivek Kumar.
