Designer Karishma's 'Kaam Kaaj' gives ode to LFW tradition
Mar '14
Focusing on the craft of Ajrakh, block printing and natural dyeing from Gujarat; Karishma Sahani Khan’s collection called “Kaam Kaaj” was an ode to tradition at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014.
Inspired by the attire of local vendors, workers and tailors; the collection had touches of gamchas, shirts, lehengas with utility pockets for inners and outers that revealed fashion from cultural India.
Keeping the silhouettes feminine with an androgynous influence, the slightly flared waisted dresses had large embroidered patch pockets in pure white or navy that looked classy over white flowing long skirts. Relaxed shapes along with cool natural fabrics gave the collection a laid back image of summer dressing. 
Embroidery in multi-coloured flowers appeared at strategic points of the garments like the drop cut-out shoulders, collars, sleeves and skirts. Saris were teamed with cropped shirts, knotted front hem skirts were rustic in nature, printed slit flared dress, fake bolero and blouson with a sari were interesting options in the collection.
With mix and match choices provided, there is a lot women can do if there is Karishma Sahani Khan’s “Kaam Kaaj” collection in their wardrobes.
