The collection, which has drawn inspiration from the Indigo plant in various interpretations, is the most modern visual of the fabled Indian indigo dye from antiquity in a paradigm shift for 2018 international fashion.
The range features hues complimenting Indigo-- ivory, pale arctic blue, leaf green, orchid pink, marmalade orange, coral red, egg yolk yellow and rose quartz on fabrics like denim, oxford denim, malkhanon-bailed cotton, gauze linen cotton and pure linen.
The line-up used a vertical, long line silhouette, design innovations such as hand sewed pleats, 3D pleated collars and stoles, layered sleeves, cutaway blousons, wrap belt ties, leaf shaped pattern pieces and layered skirt-pants.
Keeping with the Wendell Rodricks' DNA, Fernandes retains the designer label affinity for minimalism, Goan ethos, sharp colour contrasts, structure and Indian geometric lines.
The five-day fashion extravaganza, AIFW, concludes on October 15. (ANI)
