Krishna Mehta Winter Festive 2014 Fashion has its own fascinating way of presenting sartorial excellence by holding on to heritage techniques without compromising on seasoned modernity. And sometimes, age-old traditions are all you require to define this uniqueness. In Krishna Mehta’s festive collection, Indian Handlooms from Benaras, Maheshwar, Bhagalpur and Manipur have been innovated to emphasise the functionality and versatility of Indian crafts. She divides the line into four distinct categories based on their colour stories – indigo, orange, white and shocking pink. Amidst colour, print and fabric combinations, surface detailing in the form of tonal embroidery evoke the festive, celebratory mood of the line. Krishna brings out the comfort factor in festive wear through relaxed silhouettes like kurtas, tunics, angarakha gowns, mul covers with extended sleeves, flared pants and palazzos. While sarees with kedia-style blouses add a rustic touch, embellished lehengas and maxis introduce the shimmer factor to the otherwise minimal approach. Each season, Krishna Mehta features textiles from different regions of the country to create awareness and facilitate marketing opportunities for Indian Handloom.
