New Delhi, March 29 IANS | 7 months ago

Designer duo David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore selected wild silk from northeast India to create their autumn-winter collection, which they presented at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) here.


"Our collection is inspired by empowered women and wild silk of northeast," Abraham told reporters here after the designers' packed show here Friday.

Muga, Tussar and Eri are fabrics woven from wild silk, which was used to create the line.

The collection with a palette based on the golden hues of wild silk, evoked various shades of khaki.

Unlike most of the autumn-winter collections showcased at the fashion event, which started Wednesday, Abraham and Thakore's new range adhered to the theme.

There was less skin show and winter outfits like trench coat over a sari, military inspired blouson jacket with kurta and even shawl and scarves were displayed on the last show of day three of the fashion event.

But for sari blouse they didn't do what other designers did. Instead of hiding arms of models with the help of full sleeve blouse, they chose to let the arms show while covering other parts of the body like waist.

Belts were also used to hold everything together.

Meant for urban women, the range with a few pieces beautified by leopard prints, looked fabulous on models, who walked in flats. They also left behind jewellery pieces and neatly tied up hair.

Actor Rahul Dev, dressed in a pair of jeans and black shirt with some of the top buttons open, occupied a seat in the front row and watched the show.
