Mercedes-Benz Fashion week is one of the major event the city of Sydney looks forward to. Apart from the usual fervor of streetstyle which is definitely a separate post on it’s own – keep watching this space for it, the week showcased collections by designers many of who opting for a much more commercial route and played it safe- which makes sense for the business – but come on it’s a runway presentation so there were quite a few who definitely stepped up balancing that line of creative and commercial.

Weave Magic

Posted on

One of the most fun things that I as a textile designer and a fashion designer get to see at Indian fashion weeks is a designers from India do well is the exploration of cotton based hand weaves and handloomed fabrics, something the Pakistani counterparts need to learn. While one may see Maheen Khan venture into Banarsi fabric and running brilliantly with it, the examples are few and far in between. At AIFW fashion week,one got to see an array of designers exploring organic cotton weaves and playing them into different aesthetics

IKAI by Ragini Ahuja
