FashionFDCI x LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK

Payal Jain- Day Four

A fashionable melody “Earth Song” , was a creative rhapsody of colors, natural yarns, hand woven fabrics, and a mélange of animal inspired prints that came together in perfect harmony to match the theme of the collection. 

Key Elements

* Use of traditional embroidery like Sujani, Sheesho, Bharat, Rabari, Kawandi quilting and Mashru

* A riot of jungle safari inspired flora and fauna colours and prints were seen for the collection that highlighted the flowing, fluid shapes of the look

* A stylish amalgamation, as denim, handloom, checks, cottons, silk Chanderi and natural linen came together in perfect unison

Fashion Story

 Old garments ,fabric waste, embroidery, mirror work patches, laces, trims, tassels, shells and beads  recycled and reinvented The earthy wonderland was depicted through  hand stitched Shibori stitch and tie-dye technique along with hand drawn child-like motifs.Payal’s silhouettes offered fun dresses, wrap skirts, tie-up blouses and harem pants that had great mix and match possibilities.

. Payal’s collection provided the perfect ‘head to toe’ fashion solutions with bags, neck pieces, belts, wraps and throws by reinventing vintage dowry bags, crochet suits, scraps of fabrics, beads, trims and even discarded metal stripes.

 Payal Jain on her collection

“Earth Song’ has been an exciting journey of exploration, experimentation, revival and recreating. I have truly enjoyed working with a vast spectrum of colours, textures, weaves and crafts; repurposing garments, recycling trims and accessories, reinterpreting old textiles and reinterpreting embroideries into a whole new collection. Earth Song is a deep message about my love & concern for the fast-vanishing forests and endangered wildlife, and I hope it has reached my audience, clients, friends and buyers. I feel very proud to have been a part of FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week 2021 and look forward to many more”
