‘Tilla’ by Aratik showers ethnicity on LFW runway
March 18, 2014 - India
The “Tilla” label by Aratrik Dev Varman displayed some exquisite creations at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. Designed from hand-woven Indian fabrics like khadi silk and Chanderi the designer added block prints, roghan work and badla embellishments to add minute glitter to the creations.
Inspired by the mogra flower, the clothes were in varied hues that were layered in white and ecru and accessorised with cotton flower buds.
Opening with an ecru crinkle asymmetric midi, the show continued with ink crushed skirt blouse, white tube, a simple fuchsia dress with a beige cover and rose coloured tiered crinkled cape dress. The drawstring grey mini and the black/white print asymmetric cape with a white dress under it were easy on the eye and body, ideal for sizzling hot summers.
Each piece was a vision of beauty on the models as they glided down the ramp. Revealing perfect classic shapes with minute detailing, the collection was ideal for jet setting women as it revealed the perfect blend of layers, textures and design sensibilities.
Aaratrik Dev Varman’s ‘Tilla’ label had style and comfort as the basis of the collection and its understated luxury will appeal to women who want to make the maximum impact with minimum effort.
