Vaishali S showcases the future of handloom at FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week
Vaishali S’ couture collection explored the designer’s creative journey to date and featured Shadangule’s signature rope-like draped details and surreal silhouettes. Layers and textures added intrigue to monochromatic looks and volume in skirts and cocktail dresses added drama.
The colour scheme of red, purple, brown, and gold was rich and conveyed traditional Indian festivities. By mixing traditional embellishments such as gold trims with more deconstructed, tactile details, Vaishali S played with heritage aesthetics while still respecting them. Notable looks included a tactile red gown with a funnel-like neck-piece and a voluminous purple gown with a textured shoulder detail.
Vaishali S recently showcased at Milan Fashion Week as part of the official calendar on February 25. Shadangule presented her ready-to-wear collection ‘Srauta’, a tactile, ethereal take on handloom, at Milan’s historic Palazzo Durini.
FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week runs at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium at India Gate in New Delhi from March 23 to March 27. The physical runway shows are broadcast live on the organisers’ respective websites and social media accounts this season and designers can retail their wares at the fashion week’s designer showroom segment.
