Redefined florals and ikat details at Dev R Nil’s Lakme Fashion Week S/R17 showcase
A tribute to Kashmir
Dev R Nil’s ‘The Valley of Missing Flowers’ at the Lakme Fashion Week wanted the viewer to take a moment and think about the message it wanted to send. The solemn tribute to Kashmir was marked with designs and surface embellishments inspired from the valley, with 3D floral appliqué details and ikat stripes.
The basic silhouettes, including kurtas, shararas to trousers, capes, kimonos, bandgalas with striped hand loomed saris, were enhanced by the surface details that were styled in a structured manner, contrasting with the fluidity of the silk, tissue and organza fabrics.
