Digital Empowerment Foundation presents "Artisans of Digital Age" at LFW
today Aug 24, 2018
On Lakmé Fahion Week’s Sustainable Fashion Day, the Digital Empowerment Foundation presented a designer showcase entitled "Artisans of Digital Age" that featured Three, Indigenecraft, and Naushad Ali.
Naushad Ali transformed traditional handwoven textiles into androgynous western silhouettes with a collection that included kimono-style coats, wide cropped trousers, double breasted blouses, and shift dresses. The collection was in collaboration with Musiri and had a colour palette of grey, aubergine, and maroon on Ikat textiles.
Three, which was launched by Pallavi Dhyani in 2014, presented a collection with Barabanki that used cotton Gamcha textiles. The aubergine and cream collection featured long dresses, suit trousers, and blazers.
Indigenecraft showed a collection in collaboration with Barpali and Nuapatna that was inspired by Central Asian costumes such as the Shapan, a Kazakh dressing gown worn by both men and women. These coats came in thick, winter Ikat textiles featuring contrasting prints and were paired with dresses over trousers and high neck blouses and the collection is now available for pre-order.
Lakmé Fahion Week is currently running from August 22 to 26 at the St Regis in Mumbai.
