With the ethos of sustainability and ecology in mind, Nandini Baruva presented a stunning collection called “Bhumisattva” at the 6Degree Studio during LFW Day 4.
“Bhumisattva” was a story that was inspired by fibre-to-fabric sustainable fashion. It was told through an outstanding installation, where the models posed artistically against the backdrop of mirrors. Natural fabrics were woven from pineapple and banana fibre, and the native Eri silk (also known as Ahimsa silk). The outfits also displayed the beautiful hand block printing method.
The rich ensembles had equally rich colour combinations of ivory, red, black, and gold. These hues took on structured silhouettes. Whether it is a sari teamed with a tailored jacket, a fun dress with gathers at the waist, or the classic combination of blouse or tunic over circular skirts, the designer had something for everyone. Peplum tops, trench jackets, kaftan dresses and dhoti pants also made an appearance in this eco-friendly line.
India Beach Fashion Week is coming up this March and I’m super stoked to share the experience with you on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter! In the meantime, you can read about Disha Patani’s appearance at Lakme Fashion Week Day 5 here.
