NAKITA SINGH AND THE MERAKI PROJECT BROUGHT NEW FASHION DIMENSION AT 6DEGREE STUDIO DURING LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2017
NAKITA SINGH CREATED AN UNCONVENTIONAL OFFERING ON THE RAMP AT THE 6DEGREE STUDIO DURING LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2017
With a collection that will enable women to present a striking fashion statement, Nakita Singh’s show the ‘STROKE’ at 6Degree Studio during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 was inspired by the technology of sketch-the outline form of a doodle.
For fashion with an artistic palette on garments, doodle art with nature as its theme was beautifully blended with creative embroidery. Taking to the ramp in elegant, durable fabrics were a range of Khadi and linen ensembles that revealed an interesting fashion quotient.
Bengal hand-woven Begampur cotton, twills and chanderis were used in a wonderful manner. A mélange of funky and unique lines with the most basic style of pattern doodle, often forgotten today in the era of complex patterns, created an impact on the ramp with outfits being sensational, show stealers as they came down the ramp.
Working around fluid, flowing silhouettes, the line had a relaxed light vibe giving comfort a preference. Surface embroidery using Kantha outlines were blended with the roughness of the doodles, which was a perfect fusion of style, glamour, energy and enthusiasm. Inspired by an earthiness, classic, neutral gray as well as red highlights along with black and white colours the right mood was set. An anti-fit shirt with rear tied buttons was beautifully draped with a saree and minimal embroidery that made the garment simple yet classy.
With a collection that was mesmerizing not only in its beauty but also fun and easy going vibe, Nakita Singh’s ‘STROKES’ offering was a definite trendsetter for women who are not afraid to try out something new and look glamorous.
THE MERAKI PROJECT SHOWCASED A LOVABLE YOUTHFUL COLLECTION AT 6DEGREE STUDIO DURING LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2017
There was a childlike innocence in the ‘Little Hearts’ collection by Sonali Pamnani for her label ‘The Meraki Project’ at 6Degree Studio Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.
Inspired by the carefree life of children filled with fun, frolic and fantasy without a care in the world; those happy-go-lucky-days of childhood were evident in the ethos of the garments. The ambience of the show was very childlike as the models hopped, skipped and jumped in and also sat on swings as they enjoyed and relived their childhood. Using a profusion of vibrant hues and really cute silhouettes, there was intricate detailing and surface texturing that livened up the almost fairy tale like presentation. Beautiful quotes and paintings drawn by children were printed on the garments with a little embroidery added to give an edgy look. Polka dots along with prints of tigers and elephants were embossed on the pockets of the silhouettes that although looked childlike marked a very interesting and a new trend setting concept.
Yet, the fabric story was mature and full-bodied as tussar, crushed silk and organic cotton came on the ramp as the basis of the ensembles.
A firm believer in zero wastage, Sonali ensured that left over ikat materials from her previous collections was put to good use and up-cycled as lining for the garments – a truly clever and socially conscious thought.
Making a striking appearance on the catwalk was the black midi with a matching, easy, jacket peppered with checks and childlike doodle embroidery. The grey, cropped, loose, pants were worn with a matching blouse and contrasted with a long, green, gilet. The muted, yellow, midi and checked waistcoat had a party perfect vibe with childish drawings turned into embellishments.
Mildly quilted drop-waist midi, wide-legged jumpsuits, frilly hems, black/white striped/checked midi with frayed patchwork detailing were great additions. The crushed silk clean cut midi with a two-tone, reversible, long-line waistcoat offered umpteen youthful options.
Shoulder seams were accentuated with frayed contrast patches to complete the back-to-childhood-look. Cute slogans like “Loving Someone is like a lot of Eye-Contact” sent a sweet message on the bodice of the bright yellow dress, while rows of little hearts confirmed the title of the collection.
Sanya Malhotra, the showstopper walked in playfully as she swung with her garment in a very peppy manner. Sanya in a beautiful grey knotted jacket with quotes like “Saving the World” on its sleeves, “Super Woman” on the back and childlike drawings turned her into a chic trendsetter. Teamed up with a black skirt with floral appliqués Sanya Malhotra’s silhouette was a definite head turner.
When trendsetters want to hanker for their sartorial childhood days then ‘Little Hearts’ by Sonali Pamnani for her label ‘The Meraki Project’ will turn the clock fashionably back for dressers who are nostalgic about their carefree days.
