Sneak peek into the Himalayan Couture collection by Shantanu & Nikhil
Himalayan hosted an exclusive preview of Shantanu and Nikhil's Lakme Fashion Week collection last week at Bandra's Bungalow 9.
The event started with eminent artist Brinda Miller putting finishing touches to her work of art inspired by the Himalayas. It was a first for me and a unique experience to see a painter at work. The finished artwork will be on display at Lakme Fashion Week so keep a look out for it.
Spoke with the designer duo about their collection and here is what you can expect from their latest fashion story. As always the inspiration lies with the experiences of a woman and this season they are all set to take us through the next phase of their muse's life. While their trademark elements of grandeur and romance are all there, but with an edgy twist.
With darker colours such as the cobalt blue, their designs embody a more fiery persona that can almost be dubbed as a warrior princess. They have also borrowed from the timeless beauty of the Himalayas to bring us their latest collection for men and women.
I for one cannot wait for the show... :-))
