Sejal Kamdar’s collection “Spectrum of Nature” was a luminous oasis of colour at Lakmé Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI.
Selecting a colour story that was as vibrant as the rainbow, Sejal zeroed in on rich maroon, striking navy blue, ravishing scarlet red and then added neutral black and ivory. The highlight of the collection was the colourful traditional crafts like, Ajrakh, patchwork and strip work, while the surface ornamentation was visualised with antique cut pipe, bead and crystal work. Here too, it was colour that caught the eye as yellow, magenta, parrot green, sage, orange, fuchsia, grey and wine showcased a kaleidoscopic offering.
Fabrics that brought the collection to life, were rich and varied in form and structure. Luxurious German satin, Mashroo silk, pure organza and georgette played an organic medley on the ramp.
The silhouettes were aimed at the contemporary fashion sensibilities of the buyer and suitable for the festive occasions. The lehengas, were visualised in a more modern form, while the fluid pants, sharply tailored jackets, jumpsuits, sculpted draped dresses and structured peplum blouses, brought a hint of freshness to the look. Sejal had cleverly reinvented classic, traditional silhouettes to suit the fashion desires of the 21st century buyer.
Some stunners were a cropped embellished jacket with leafy embroidery that was followed by a heavily, tasselled embellished, shimmering bolero.
Bollywood beauty, Nargis Fakhri made a stunning, show stopping entry for the Sejal Kamdar Designs show, in an all-black trio comprising long, fish-tail skirt, heavily encrusted bralette and a perky, short-sleeved, ornate, bolero with structured shoulders.
Nargis Fakhri added, “It was such a pleasure to walk for Sejal at Lakmé Fashion Week X FDCI. The outfits from the collection are beautiful and accentuate the body types of all women.”
The “Spectrum of Nature” by Sejal Kamdar Designs was all about fashion and style, which was aimed at women who long for a unique sartorial repertoire in their wardrobes.
Sejal Kamdar said, “My brand is about sustainability. We believe in tradition of India and have used Ajrakh, a 600 year old technique of dyeing and block printing using ingredients from nature itself. The collection has been created with refreshing silhouettes with heavy embellishments to celebrate diversity with contemporary yet global outlook. It was great to present this collection on a esteemed platform like Lakmé Fashion Week X FDCI.”
