Govind's collection all about connectivity
Deepika Govind's collection explored the complex relationship between the old and new, two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms, the delicate and the sturdy, traditional and new fabrics, and modern with antique composites.
A range of skirts and pants were presented for men and women that were teamed with complex uppers. The blouses were characterized by multiple irreverent layers composed of patches and panels of differently textured fabrics. Chiffons, jacquards and embroidered panels appeared to be held together with knots of fabric ropes. Recycled fabrics enhanced the ornamentation of the seamless engineered garments. The pleated wrap front pants, chudi-pants, and illusionary
double pleated trousers made for interesting bottomwear.
The colour palette was warm vintage, with plenty of rose, peach, copper and sand, and some of the other fabrics used were eri silk, corn silk, modal, and lycra blends.
Complex interest was definitely the mark of Deepika Govind's collection.
