Indian handloom, Australian design come together at LMIFW
The Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week (LMIFW) will feature collections of five Australian designers—Romance was Born, We are Kindred, Brother’s Earth, Cassandra Harper and Roopa— created using Indian handloom textiles on October 10. The dazzling showcase will be presented in collaboration with the Indian textiles ministry as part of Australia Fest.

LMIFW will be organised in association with NEXA Spring Summer’19. The showcase is an outcome of the memorandum of understanding between the two countries signed at Textiles India 2017 in Gandhinagar, according to a news agency report.

In partnership with Australian social enterprise Artisans of Fashion (AOF), Australian designers worked closely with Indian artisans to develop their collections.

The show consists of collections developed by Romance Was Born and We are Kindred with brocades from Uttar Pradesh, Brother’s Earth in collaboration with Indian designer Naushad Ali with natural Indigo dyed handloom textiles from Tamil Nadu, Cassandra Harper with Ikats from Telangana and Roopa with silks from West Bengal.

Australia first partnered with the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) and AOF in 2013 with a showcase at India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013. (DS)
