Karishma Shahani Khan’s Ka Sha is renowned for advocating storytelling by means of sustainable clothing. To take it one step further, for her winter/festive collection at the Lakmé Fashion Week she collaborated with CRAFTMARK to create a quirky-chic collection with an ethnic twist. The collection fully developed by Kota Doriya women weavers, stressed upon the complexity of the elusive silk weave.
Per usual, layering was at its peak- elaborate ruffled blouses with ruffled sarees, airy dresses teamed with contrast flowy jackets and scarves adding volume. Nifty details such as hand embroidered fabric flowers, beaded tassels, a hint of zari and sequin work and handwoven checked and polka patterns brought fervour to the collection. The brilliance of the collection lied in the fact that numerous pieces were reversible so that one may wear it multiple times and ways.
While the show was a walk through one, it didn’t take away from the charm of the ramp. In fact, it only gifted a rare opportunity to the viewers to examine the outfits more personally. It was a refreshing pause from the hustle bustle of the day. Beauty and hair were as vibrant as the apparel- a whimsical pop of colour on the eyes with feminine turbans and tousled buns. To conclude, the show was a true indulgence for the senses.
