RITU KUMAR SHOWCASES AW20 COLLECTION ‘NATURE’S ORIGAMI’ AT LAKME FASHION WEEK
The finale of “Sustainable Fashion Day” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020 made way for a new perspective on sustainability as Padma Shri Ritu Kumar, India’s most respected designer unveiled her environmental friendly collection “Nature’s Origami” with her iconic laid out prints in collaboration with Austrian fiber brand LENZING™ ECOVERO™.
The show was collaboratively designed and conceptualised by Ritu Kumar and Amrish Kumar; an amalgamation of sustainable fabrics in vibrant and off beat hues and incorporation of vintage prints into modern silhouettes that gave the feel of an organic look. The collection resonated with an urban chic vibe of a contemporary woman featuring dresses, skirts, jackets, etc engendered on the central theme of tribal and contemporary Indian art forms which allude to nature and rejuvenation. The show set-up represented a contemporary outlook featuring artisanal installations curated with sheer fabrics, ropes, metal accents and with hints of gold threading, materials used in the making of the garments.
The “Nature’s Origami” collection by Ritu Kumar in collaboration with LENZING™ ECOVERO™ was a grand offering of fashion and style that blended sustainability with trendy creations.
