Three Gen Next designers open day 4 of LFW
Sep '09
Three Gen Next designers from last season appeared as emerging designers and proved that they are all set to make their individual mark on the fashion scene for the Spring/ Summer 2010 season at Lakme Fashion Week.

Working with the beautiful textiles from his state Nagaland, Imcha Imchen's collection called “How Many Stories do you Read on my Face” was a very creative and impressive line of men's and women's wear. Organic cottons and silks with vegetable dyes were the basis of the line in white and black with hints of block prints and basket weaves.

Woven jackets, pleated shirts, layered kurta, draped dress in Chanderi, double layered tops, indigo dyed vest and loin inspired wrap around with a mul shirt, a bias bundi and a pleated waist coat were some of the striking creations. The innovative accessories like the fabric shoes, armlets, bangles all developed in Nagaland were the perfect additions to the collection.

Inspired by many of the tribal attire of his state, Imcha worked the look into modern garments very cleverly but at the same time allowed the outfits to make definite tribal fashion statements. Here was a very compact collection with a very strong identity.

Working on a neutral story which swayed from white to ecru and then gradually added colours and returned to its white base, “Safed Rang” by Paromita Banerjee was a collection that revolved around mul mul, Kora, Handloom and Tangail and brought in contrasts of sheer with solids. The leaf motif was constant and appeared occasionally in unconventional placement on the garments.

An angarkha wrap kalidar kurta, a swirling black and ecru printed checked ghera with leaf outline embellishments,a striking reversible waistcoat, a Tibetan wrap style kurta with ribbed churidars pants, khadi red full sleeved wrap top with wrap over belt and a kora handloom Tangail “A” line panelled kurta were some of the eye-catching looks on the ramp.

Detailing was partial to faggoting which appeared discreetly on the sleeves, front or sides of the outfits. While the collection was a fusion line, there were marked Tibetan, Mughal and Ethiopian influences for the pyjamas, ghera skirts and kurtas. Paromita Banerjee once again scored with her light and trendy summer 2010 line.

The title of the collection was rather quirky – “I Stole From Him” which revealed that the inspiration was based on a story of a shift dress and an oversized net jacket. With these two limited options, it would be difficult to design for some designers but Neha Agarwal sent out a funky layered embellished collection with each entry having multiple garments that could easily be separated into numerous options of mix and wear.
