One of India’s popular young designer, Ken Ferns took the audience on a journey of hallucinations, visions and broken memories with his collection, poetically called ‘The Eternal Sleep‘.
Ken’s collection was a dream-like interpretation that radiated a psychotropic vibe through the course of the show. He conceptualized the flower, poppy from color to cut. Poppies have been used as a symbol of sleep, peace and even death through the ages. In ancient Greek and Roman myths, poppies were used as offerings to the dead and were placed on tombstones to symbolize eternal sleep.
Using a combination of flowing textured materials like luxurious crepe, georgette, organza and specially sourced and imported suiting fabrics, the designer breathed life into the flower like qualities of the collection. Ken incorporated a monochromatic feel to his collection with tones like black, white, poppy red and blue. A particular garment that was interestingly constructed had the cut-out sweetheart corset conjoined with a pencil skirt and a sheer cropped jacket draped over it. Here was contemporary fashion at its best.
Indian television actor and host, Karan Tacker sizzled on the ramp as the showstopper in a Ken Ferns creation. He wore a monochromatic suit with a crisp white shirt and embellished buttons.
Chic and contemporary, ‘The Eternal Sleep‘ by Ken Ferns was ideal for any fashion conscious individual who wanted to make a statement that was unique. Check out more pictures of Karan from his ramp walk and let us know what you think of the collection.
