Indian designers gear up for Lakme Fashion Week A/W 14
Aug '14
Magnificent, eclectic arrays of Autumn/Winter 2014 lines, created by some of the most talented young and seasoned designers in India, will be showcased at the much awaited Indian fashion revelry Lakme Fashion Week.

The event will see a menswear and womenswear range, inspired from the traditional handmade wooden Kokeshi dolls of Northern Japan, designed by the Kolkata native Sayantan Sarkar. Made using cotton mul, linen and jamdani weave, the line is enhanced with doll motifs, Japanese tie-dying shibori patterns, Indian block print and rich zardozi embroidery. Based in boho silhouettes, the range is created on a palette of indigo, charcoal-gray, tangerine-orange, off-white and sunflower-yellow tones.

Contemporary women’s fashion brand EKRU, by designers Ekta Jaipura and Ruchira Kandhari, drew inspiration from rich cultural heritage of India for its embroidery heavy collection. A mix of handmade and machine embroidery such as thread, ari and zardozi work, the line, which includes pieces like anarkalis, tunics, straight kurta sets and drape garments, is a fusion of traditional Indian silhouettes and modern elements.

New York’s Parson’s School of Design alumnus Urvashi Joneja will feature her fortresses and armour inspired collection Guarded at the event. The creations depict human emotions through prints, braiding, drapes and structure. Crafted from georgette, crepe, raw silk and faux leather accents, the ensembles are accentuated with various versions of geometric prints in monochromes and shades of red, burnt orange, purple, black and gold.

Sashikant Naidu’s clothing range separe (meaning separates in French) is made from silk, dupion, fletcher, ikat, Khadi and crepe. Replete with hand painted nature motifs, eco-friendly colours, hand embroidery and South India’s signature temple borders, the line includes dresses, jackets, skirts, scarves, stoles, dupattas, lehengas, sarees and blouses in a mixed colour story of muted and bright tones.

Harsh Gupta, the Bollywood designer behind the label Harsh Harsh, will create a special clothing line titled Frozen to be worn with the accessory designer Laila Singh’s latest peacock-inspired line from her semi-precious jewellery label Social Butterfly. With an abundance of snipped and cut peacock feathers, the range is primarily based in blacks and whites.

Starting today, Lakme Fashion Week will run till August 24, 2014.
