Debutantes Blaze a trail
India Fashion Week introduces first cut designers with their exclusive range inspired by contemporary elements. By Palak Sharma
I took my inspiration from my grandmother. I believe in slow fashion that is why slow fashion movement by me is mainly focused on Khadi and Lenin that are all hand-made. The dye we have used to colour the clothes is chemical free and takes eight to nine days to complete a saree,” says Suparna Som.
For this collection, she took inspiration from ‘Spring Summer 18 Trend Report’ in which she featured Safari Suits, Nehru Kurta with a feminine touch. The pants under her label have the influence of the street fashion style. Despite having a fulltime job, this Kolkata based designer has commenced her own label in February. Suprna Som’s label is available only on custom-based demands.
Fakhri adds glamour
Nargis Fakhri, who walked the ramp for Unleashed, a New York based clothing line introduced in India featured designs carved from the local township of Baraily in Madhya Pradesh. The label brings to attention the Indie element of Bindi encircled with embellishments on trousers, pants, shirts, hoodies and t-shirts on warm colours giving a jazzy look. The mind behind these designs is a New York based fashion expert who has been giving an edge and space to Indian artisans to be at par with modern age fashion.
The young designer’s promising collection gives a new statement to the traditional ways of draping a saree. She has refurbished the Kantha embroidery style on traditional Khadi and cotton fabrics and has used organic colours for her fusion garments that boasts sarees and shirts in the floral range.
Aureole collection featured a range of harmonised designs to bring out the elegance of luxurious hand spun khadi and silk, with round patches and horizontal lines. The designers used bold colours to give definition to their designs in sober colours with fabric that’s both cozy and light.
The label depicts simplicity with luxury that can be a takeaway for Sunday brunches to evening parties.
