Antar-Agni and Urvashi Kaur explore India’s traditional weaves at Lakme Fashion Week Sustainable Fashion Day
On day two of Lakme Fashion Week, its Sustainable Fashion Day, both Urvashi Kaur and Antar-Agni presented eco-friendly collections that blurred the lines between traditional male and female aesthetics.
Urvashi Kaur presented a collection titled “Masira” that used thick, textured fabric to reinterpret menswear style suits for both men and women. Subtle stripes and a colour palette of muted hues mixed with bright red made for a subtle aesthetic and models including Anjali Lama walked the runway with natural faces and slicked back hair. The wearable fusion wear collection was inspired by “chaos” and “culture”, according to the brand’s social media.
Antar-Agni, founded by Ujjawal Dubey in 2014, presented “You Grow On Me” on the runway. The neutral toned collection featured wrap-jackets, floaty yet rustic textiles, and minimal styling for both men and women. The collection mixed traditional silhouettes with modern, paired-down aesthetics to show off the collection’s eco-friendly textiles.
Lakme Fashion Week began on August 21 and runs until August 25. The fashion week, which celebrates its 20th birthday this year, has made Sustainable Fashion Day a seasonal fixture as it, and the Indian fashion industry at large, increases its focus on ethical fashion.
