Updated – Alumnus Digvijay Singh’s Lakme FW collection 2010

Digvijay Singh for Bhusattva has inspirations which are always organic in nature and this time for the Winter/Festive 2010 season at Lakmé Fashion Week his theme was the rare Rafflesia flower with the collection having an unusual name like “Tidak Ada Lagi” which means “there are not many left” in Malay.

Staying true to his theme, the silhouettes of the collection were inspired by the flower but with a marked Indian touch giving a flowing elegant look to the creations. The fabrics were of course organic in nature and so were the dyes. Pastels played with greasy whites and purple with just a few touches of red and green for the very natural fabrics like cotton satin, blends, kora, modal and matka silk.

Surface texturing is a strong point with Digvijay which was very evident on the elegant garments. French knots added class to the shapes of the motifs using the flower as the central theme. Giving the apparel a very feminine touch, Digvijay added on amazing texturing which gave a unique depth and beauty to the creations.
