A wave of realism sweeps the catwalk as a garden of blooms welcome the advent of SS ’17. Ilk’s paper-like blouses were to die for and Kavita Bhartia’s lace was prolific despite conventional silhouettes, while Tytler’s gold rush kept it sparkling!
Anavila keeps it meditative, as her line skilfully synthesises the sari with the ‘Now’ generation; Shruti Sancheti pays homage to white and the gritty trio from Gujarat of Virtues provide the ideal antidote to fast fashion as they ‘go green’!
Crafts and textiles are a bit like the Richard Bach, 70s story of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a quest for self-perfection and riding the wave of belief that finally becomes an aerial feat! AIFW SS’ 17 warms the cockles of your heart with that unfettered passion for hand-crafted!
