LFW: Fantasy meets fashion
Designer duo Aiman Agha and Armaan Randhawa under their label 'ARMAAN AIMAN' showcased a surreal, fantasy-meets-fashion collection titled 'Buddalicious' at Jabong Stage during Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2014.
Staying true to their design philosophy of experimental expression, the range which was inspired by the intricacy and artistry of tapestry made use of exquisite embroidery and meticulous tailoring in raw, earthy fabrics to create diverse pieces for the modern sophisticated urban Indian woman.
The chakras were also an inspiration through lines and the lotus motifs that appeared on the garments.
The colour palette was simple, blacks and whites helped set the mood as textures, prints and embellishments took centre stage on pieces like skirts, trousers, tops, blazers, shorts and dresses.
A constant theme within the collection was the Buddha print which worked to set a spiritual, philosophical undertone to the collection. The designers also used gold accents to add a touch of glam to their range.
Calm and charming, Aiman Agha and Armaan Randhawa's label 'ARMAAN AIMAN' is perfect for those fashionistas who like to wear not just their heart, but also their mind on their sleeve.
