Rehane – Spring/Summer 2012, Lakme Fashion Week
How exactly would YOU have reacted if you see a model come out smeared in talcum powder in plane white unfinished garment with calk marks reading ‘shift-dart’???
Honestly, I am too baffled at the point to comment if it’s cool or not, but all I know is that this is DARING.
I was flicking through the runway photographs from Lakme India Fashion week which recently concluded in Mumbai. Most shows were no different but for some amazing fabrics. Once, our elements of textiles professor had told us that India is a nation where we don’t have much variation with silhouettes but when it comes to Indian textiles, they are as diverse as the nation’s culture itself. Imagine what it is like for every state to have it’s own unique textile crafts. That clearly reflects in most Indian fashion shows where you see a spectacular display of surface ornamentation while most designers hardly ever play with silhouettes.
