Monday, May 18, 2015

Summer is now in full swing, and for this season Vogue and Ensemble bringing you the best of global and Indian fashion.

From electric mix of understated vivid hues to tinted pastels, from classic white, blue to tangerine, from digital prints to polka dots every piece of this collection has its own uniqueness.

Beside the soft and sheer fabrics, skin and weather friendly cotton is the center of attraction of this collection. This preview titled ‘Meet Your Summer Wardrobe’ will showcase collections inspired by travels and holidays.

So here five finalists of the Vogue India Fashion Fund (VIFF) 2014 are launching their Summer Collection at Ensemble on 7th May, 2015 at DLF Emporio, New Delhi.

The top 5 finalists - winner Ruchika Sachdeva of Bodice and runner-up Ragini Ahuja of IKAI, along with Hemant and Nandita, Karishma Shahani of KaSha and Jayesh Sachdev and Rixi Bhatia of Quirxbox.

Executive Director, Ensemble and jury member of Vogue India Fashion Fund 2014, Tina Tahiliani Parikh says, “It always gives me the biggest creative high to see the work of these fantastic new kids on the block. Ensemble was set up 27 years ago to give Indian design a platform and to partner with Vogue on this event and bring to the market such fresh and original work, is truly satisfying.”

The summer 2015 collection by the VIFF finalists will showcase at Ensemble, which will include:

Bodice: The collection is derived from a fine mix of modern tailoring and pattern making skills, integrated with androgynous silhouettes. The clothes consist of transitional wardrobe staples that are recognizable by Bodice’s unique, minimal aesthetic, quality construction and versatility.

Quirkbox: Wanderlust, inspired by the global traveller, is an art print collection characterised by colour blocking, loud hues and mellow pastels. Inspired by monuments and postcards from around the world, this collection sees a lot of these prints on fluid georgette, crepe silhouettes and summery chanderi shirts and tunics.

KaSha: The collection titled Neel embodies the Indigo trail, revisiting the various cultures it touched. Motifs are derived from sacred flowers that adorn our blue-skinned gods, tinted with ‘kum-kum’. Hand woven silks, woven cottons, mid weight recycled denims and fabric remnant weaves are hand-embroidered and resist dyed to depict our multi-layered inspiration in tones of blue and hints of colour.

Hemant & Nandita: Travel is a major inspiration and Hemant & Nandita extract their ideas from various cities around the world. The designs are for women who are independent and travel from one city to the next. Merging retro silhouettes along with pop colours, the collection also beautifully juxtaposes smoke grey and mid night blues against saffron, sunshine yellow and off white. 

IKAI: Summer Twenty15 is an amalgamation of the old and new. Set against a futuristic-Oriental backdrop, the line consists of boxy anti-fits appliqued with graphic Japanese motifs - the big red dot, 3D fringed cranes and leather applique Japanese fan details mixed with graphic stripes and fresh polkas in beige and blue.

The summer 2015 collection will display the season’s latest trends with a major focus on separates and prints - pastels, whites, indigos and a mix of sorbet shades ruled the palette with light and flowing silhouettes supported by Indian handicrafts and fabrics. 

Priya Tanna, Editor, Vogue India says, “Over the years, the Vogue India Fashion Fund (VIFF) has proved a good measure of the industry’s young, upcoming talent. The VIFF 2014 winners, too, personify what we’re always on the lookout for—a combination of an incredible design aesthetic, potential for longevity and business savvy. Events like these are a good way to get access to their collections.”

The Vogue India Fashion Fund is part of a global initiative to mentor the next generation of fashion designers. Started in India in 2012 in collaboration with Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), the Fund brings together a panel of industry experts to identify the finalists and one winner. 

So for this summer make your shopping experience special with Ensemble.
