New Delhi [India], Mar. 19 (ANI): Taking cue from military, designers Shikha Grover and Vinita Adhikar showcased their collection on Day four of the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter'17. Rooted to the culture and tradition of its belonging, the designer duo's startup known as Ilk, aims to add a touch of handmade textures, which is also the brand's signature. According to the duo, "The colors are inspired by the military uniform. Different shades of green are used. The print is derived from the camouflage pattern and is created by using floral motifs." Taking inspiration from her sense of randomness, designer Reby Jindal's collection 'Guapa' sent out a message of love and peace through the collection. "I decided to combine everything- my love for colors, stripes, Metallics, beiges whites and black in particular, Quilting, beading, Foiling, pleating," the designer told media, post-event. "So what I'm trying to show through this collection is that when you put the things together that you think may not go well can also create something really unique," she added. Women in their mid-thirties and up played muse to the brand munkee.see.munkee.doo, which also showcased their collection on Day four. "The MSMD woman comes into her own and embraces simplicity, practicality and above all, individuality. The shapes are easy, stripped-back, familiar. Embellishments and color palette are of the subtlest kind - sketchy floral and weathered leaves serve as embroidery on white, black, beige, rust and steel blue," according to designers Teresa Laisom and Utsav Pradhan. Talking about their inspiration, the designers said, "In today's always-in-a-rush society of our's, this collection looks towards simplifying the everyday lives of women; taking a pause and reflecting on how she's gotten to the place she is now. It's about moving forward by looking back." (ANI)
