The Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week (LMIFW) Autumn/Winter 2019 season presented by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) in association with Liva was held in New Delhi from March 13 to 16, Meher Castelino reports.
The Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2019 season presented by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) in association with Liva saw designers opting for an interesting line-up of fabrics. Keeping the tone more towards sustainable and organic textiles, the weaves were created keeping the season and garments in mind. The colours moved from bright tones to sombre winter shades, while the patterns and motifs seen were adventurous, but at times remained true to the basic designs.
Aarti Vijay Gupta
Known as the High Priestess of Prints, the designer has each season presented a variety of inspirations that have been taken from India as well as the West. For the coming season, Aarti Vijay Gupta brought a collection with bagru prints and the Pichai lotus in brights, using velvets and silks as the base for the garments, which were a riot of colours and motifs.
Something as ethereal and noble as silk and zari were mingled with the bold and resilient denim to create a collection for the modern woman. Hand-woven by the weavers of Varanasi, the fabrics had a luxurious look.
Three varying fabrics like zari, khadi and denim came together for the collection with chunky knits for an Eastern flavour. Crocheted patchwork textures along with cross-stitch embroidery ensured that denim got a glamorous look.
