Indigene’s Homage To Ikat At Lakmé Fashion Week

by Drishti Mistry

Traditional handmade textile techniques being their signature, Indigene creates appealing and affordable contemporary pieces. In lieu of Lakmé Fashion Week’s Sustainability Day, Indigene’s initiative to tie up with Digital Empowerment Foundations’ clusters at Barpali and Naupatna in Orissa was imperative. Highlighting the cluster’s famed Ikat textiles, Indigene crafted an interesting mish-mash of fusion ensembles.

The silhouettes drew inspiration from traditional shapans, khalats and kurtas adorned in Central Asian regions. Catching the eye was the abundant splash of geometric and floral motifs on a neutral palate- olives, greys, maroons and blacks.

The simplicity of the silhouettes was extended to the hair and makeup- braided pulled back hair and bare dewy skin rendering a bucolic appeal. A treat to the eyes, the show was a soul-soothing experience in all its glory.
