Spotlight: Payal Singhal Lakme Fashion Week Winter /Festive 2013

16th Sept 2013

Yep, I’m a few weeks late with this but ohh Well! It’s a collection that’s still worth sharing!

Payal Singhal’s Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive collection was a collection of two parts. The first part was an exciting mash up of traditional shapes which were given a further edge with graphic prints in a palette of blush tones and inky blacks. The second part was more in keeping with the pretty Indo-Western aesthetic she’s known for and will keep fans happy but as you can tell it was the first part that wowed me- so here I am sharing those images!

And as for inspiration- the collection was inspired by the symmetry and the relationship between nature and architecture found in ‘Char Bagh’ which translates as four gardens and refers to the Persian style of garden where the space is divided into four equal parts by either a walkway or water channels. The most famous example is the Taj Mahal.
