LFW W/F to see Swati's Vietnamese tradition inspired line
Jul '14
Designer Swati Vijaivargie unveiled the first look of her Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2014 collection at a Press Conference hosted by LFW at the Palladium Hotel. Actress Deeksha Seth, her muse, made an appearance wearing a shibori printed knee length dress with a printed jacket.
The collection is inspired by the traditional clothing of Hmong women and pays homage to the culture of Vietnam. The motifs, colors, textures and details are all derived from Vietnamese tradition. The key element of the collection lies in the inspirations drawn from their textiles and the patterns noted in the nation’s clothing and architecture. The fabrics used are handmade, hand textured and tie-dyed to bring forth the originality of the Southeast Asian country.
The prints are created predominately by using shibori, a pleat and bind technique. Hand made silk buttons and quilting forms the base for the texture and embroidery. The history of Vietnam finds its place in the bloomed geometric lotuses and the appliquéd dragon motifs.
The collection is tailored to the needs of a glamorous bohemian globetrotter, who incorporates a chic non-conformist attitude in her clothing choices.
Swati Vijaivargie will be showcasing her collection at the Lakme Fashion Week on 21st August at 8:30PM.
