It’s always nice to see Indian designs on international runways, especially one as prestigious as the London Fashion Week. The five-day event that kickstarted on February 16 had only one Indian designer putting out her collection on display this year.
Vidhi Wadhwani was the only Indian designer to showcase her collection at the London Fashion Week this year. Inspired by the juxtaposition of light and shadow created during the day and night, Vidhi’s collection resonates with the carefree nomadic easy-going muse who doesn’t confirm to the usual and thrives in her world where everything is possible, read a press release from the designer, ahead of her show.
In a press release, Wadhwani described her muse for the collection as carefree, easy going, and nomadic; a woman who goes her own way and thrives in her own world.
The contrast of light and shadow will also play a key part in the collection, said the press release. The colour scheme will include yellow, black, and white, and bees and a honeycomb inspired print will also be featured throughout the collection as well as stripes and simple floral print textiles.
“The A/W’18 line is especially focused on being season-less,” said Wadhwani. “The separates comprise of structured dresses, deconstructed jackets, sheer skirts, soft layers, geometric applique and block-printed organzas in monochromes and metallics,” she elaborated.
