Some of the better shows I saw this season at Lakme Fashion Week were not in the main show area, but outside at the Talent Box (in The Source, where all the designer stalls are).
Among the shows at the Talent Box which caught my attention was the label Klitche by Isha Kedia and Deepak Goswami. Their collection was called Paper Planes and focused on the clear form & beauty of folded, shaped paper.
The colour range comprised shades of red, blue, black and beige; which were kept minimal for strong silhouettes to take centre stage.
Using traditional winter fabrics such as felt, there were softer cottons and silks, along with suiting materials, which gave the collection its fresh, strong and feminine appeal.
The range showcased dresses, tunics, coats and jackets which flaunted carefully constructed forms and fabric textured designs in abstract geometric shapes.
Using no embellishments, the collection also had statement pieces which displayed 3D accentuations with interesting cut outs, large structured flares, as well as 3D protruding patterns.
To keep the look of this collection fresh, Lakmé Salon experts worked with Mickey Mouse ear shaped hair buns, sleek eyeliner and bright lips.
