LFW Winter/Festive 2012 | Anushka Khanna infuses art with clothing
Anushka Khanna’s collection was all about infusing art with clothing. Taking inspiration from mosaic work her collection titled, ‘Floral Fragments’ was a blend of Victorian romanticism with the rigidity and classical structure of this renaissance art.
Using fabrics such as silks, georgettes and crepes, the designer kept her silhouettes free flowing and feminine, with a surreal appeal.
For embellishments, coloured thread and sequins were played with, to help accentuate the frames, giving them an almost other-worldly edge. Transposing from modern to ethnic, this collection also included saris as well as flared skirts which displayed both mosaic prints as well as patterned beadwork.
For an added edge some pieces also sported layering, sheer elements, intricate surface texturing; with the colour palette of this collection boasting colours and shades such as greys, pinks, oranges among neon tones. The collection also comprised a range of jackets, tunics, dresses and blazers.
Modern, fun and feminine this range is for the young diva who likes to be in the spotlight.
