The designer prepares to put forth a collection that uses new-age materials, new forms and patterns with incredible craftsmanship.
Antar Agni by Ujjwal Dubey leads us to the sweet spot of rebellion versus tradition. This new line is inspired by human emotions that tend to make us break away and still keep us rooted. It is a presentation of the stylized idea of festive and everyday wear, with an exciting mix of subtle prints and deconstructed metallic embroideries.
Saaksha & Kinni aim to see their silhouettes come alive this season that take on bold colours, playful prints, original embroideries, and, mostly, a lot of fun. The classic bandhani, patola and ikat prints are to look forward to. But like with everything else, they do this their way—showcasing them through their lens of signature digital prints.
And to wrap up all the LFW fun, is the Saaksha & Kinni screening with Johnnie Ginger.
