Lina Tipnis bring Turkish fashion flavour to Lakme runway
Mar '10
Lina Tipnis gave her collection The Turkish flavour at Lakmé Fashion Week ummer/Resort 2010

The beauty of the magnificent gems at the Topkapi Palace, the swirling Turkish dervishes, the beautiful blue Iznik tiles and the 14th century Grand Bazaar of the magical city of Istanbul was the inspiration of Lina Tipnis's collection titled “Istanbul Not Constantinople” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2010.

Blending all these intriguing facets of the Turkish capital, Lina's colour story was a neutral nude along with ivory and mahogany enhanced by rich colours of the semi precious gems.

Using the Trompe L'Oiel method which means Trick the Eye Lina's use of this added a new dimension to her designs and creations. Sticking to a simple silhouette path, Lina had cocktail dresses which varied in shape from trapeze to tent, sheath to shirt, stylish caftans as well as Turkish trousers. The distinct embroidery reflecting the Turkish jewels was used discreetly on varying segments of the garments to highlight them.

The eye catchers were the chaand gala halter in cotton burnout, cold shoulder saaz print in Dupion the jewelled taabla dress, jewelled kurta dress with side embroidered slits, the impressive jewelled dagger shift, the arch of the Grand Bazaar dress, the multiple haar trapeze dress and the Trompe L'Oiel lock and key caftan shirt. The map print section had a tulip skirt clavi top and keyhole sheath.

Lina Tipnis scored a perfect ten with her Summer/Resort 2010 line which reflected the beauty of Turkey with the fabrics of India in just the right proportions.
