The stage is set for Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013 and this season we have local Ahmedabad based designers participating in it. The Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013 will be held from August 23rd to 27th at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Mumbai and local designers Poonam Sanghani (22) and Rohit Dubey (23) will be showcasing their latest collection!
Ahmedabad based Designers Rohit Dubey & Poonam Sanghani
Ahmedabad based Designers Poonam and Rohit launched their label ‘Siyahi’ while still at the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Gandhinagar. Contemporary in its appeal, yet richly traditional in soul, Siyaahi creates ensembles that spell elegance and intricacy.
The label, Siyaahi, was launched in 2010 by the gifted duo, Poonam Sanghani and Rohit Dubey.
In their latest collection for Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013 “Starry Night”, Poonam and Rohit aim to bring to you an expression of the soul of the denim fabric. Their upcoming creation spells youth, freedom and heritage. Beautiful indigo shades of denim have been draped onto indo-western curves and then embellished with sophisticated embroideries.
The duo explains, “On the skies of denim silhouettes every meteor and star has been very carefully aligned, this is our vision of Starry Night. Each garment is an embodiment of the legacy of the denim fabric molded into contemporary designs and finally adorned with very subtle embroideries which enhances the overall look of the creation.”
Sequins, pearls, metal wires have all been used very delicately to give glimpses of a starry night in certain parts of the garment with a balanced mix of heavy embroidery in other areas. In shades of blue along with ochre yellow, deep red, off-white and black, the pair has tried to bring forth the new avatar of denim along with hints of silk.
Known for their fresh take on traditional elements as well as unique use of crafts, the label has grown from one force to another and gathered many accolades on the way. Watch out for this pair’s creativity at the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013.
