Mumbai, Oct 21: Designer Nachiket Barve steals show with superior fashion geometry in his spring or summer collection on the first day of the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) in Mumbai.
Known for using geometry in his collection, Barve again used the same pattern by creating clusters of flowers, working with cuts, panels and seams and played with contrast in rich shades.
"Its an adjective for being covered in flowers. The inspiration started from structure of flowers. We are celebrating spring summer, so we wanted something, which really captures the essence of that season," Barve said.
The silhouettes were simple yet elegant for the day and evening wear using colour blocking and paneling along with cutworks and layers gave his dresses a novel look.
LFW, which will be held till October 24, will involve events like media seminars, business-to-business meetings and a buyers' forum, apart from the regular fashion shows.
The event will also provide a platform for fresh designers who possess the talent through the Gen Next and emerging designer category shows.
Apart from this there would be 'Group Accessory Designer show' where an array of accessories like headgears, handbags and shoes would be an interpretation of fashion by 20 renowned artists through their artworks.
Around 75 designers would showcase their collections in this season of the fashion week.
