LAKME FASHION WEEK 2020
- The designer will showcase her collection at the finale of Sustainable Day at LFW
- Fabrics made of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ sustainable viscose fibre
- Iconic laid out prints of Ritu Kumar legacy
Making way for a new perspective on ‘Sustainability’, designer Ritu Kumar is all set to foray into the world of environment-friendly creations with the showcase of her AW’20 collection at the finale of Sustainable Day at Lakmé Fashion Week 2020. Ritu Kumar is partnering with the Austrian fiber brand, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ to create iconic laid out prints.
About the Collection
The collection is a culmination of four stories – Mrinalini Mukherjee’s exhibit at the MET, Neo Origami, Flora & Fauna, and Sundarvan.
Owing to Mrinalini’s work with knotted textiles, the capsule encompasses fabric manipulation and the revival of age-old textile techniques. At the crossroads where modern chevron meets classic florals, you see laces and layering surfaces in Neo Origami. Festive felicity meets pleats and burnout velvet, and the abundance of la dolce vita in the potpourri of Sundarvan.
The color palette is an amalgamation of vegetable dyes and carefully crafted hues from deep burgundy to faded ochre and an infusion of violets and leafy greens; it can be an agent for positive change in social, economic and environmental dimensions.
