LFW SR 2013: Top picks from Aircel’s Save the Tiger show

LFW SR 2013: Top picks from Aircel’s Save the Tiger show

It’s good to know that the tiger population in India has increased by roughly 300 since Aircel first began their “Save the Tiger” campaign. At Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2013, Aircel presented Fashion for a Cause that showcased the works of 40 designers. Each creation was inspired by the tiger and each ensemble was completely different from the rest. Some of the designs were ferocious like the majestic creature, some made a strong statement, and some took the theme very seriously. I liked several of them.

My favourite looks were from Nachiket Barve, Rimi Nayak, Shivan Narresh, Ragini Ahuja, Jatin Varma, Nupur Kanoi and Sidharth Aryan. Some of the best pictures from this list:

Most interesting look

Swapnil Shinde mixed robotic, futuristic, tribal, raw, dramatic, spiritual, futuristic and dark celebratory inspirations to almost recreate sci-fi movies and music of the 80s.

Other noteworthy looks

Nupur Kanoi:

The designer used fabric tapes as embellishment, and created geometric patterns as surface decoration. The colour story revolved around white (depicting spirituality) and blue.

Shashank Raj- Prajwal Badwe:

The duo showcased speed and chaos of city life with innovative shapes, and techniques like blotting art and paper cut-outs, 3D felt cut-outs and clever play of sheer with opaque fabrics.

Narendra Kumar played DJ at his show in a Mick Jagger wig, as his models in similar wigs danced a bit on the ramp. And oh, the clothes weren’t too bad.
