Inculcating the affluent craft works of Rajasthan and an attempt to promote the village artisans through the NGO ‘Woven Gold’, accomplished Designer Rohit Kamra with his label Rohit & Abhishek for Woven Gold presented his exclusive menswear line at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer Resort 2013. Eye candy of the show was Coleena Shakti who portrayed the character of tribal queen, she stole the show with her sensuous tribal fusion dance using sword as a prop which depicts masculinity later handing over the sword to the warriors i.e. models.
Provoking the spirit of life, equilibrium is achieved with the fusion of Music and dance of Shakti and keeping this ideology in mind, Rohit experimented with various factors of nature. The highlight of the collection was the prominent use of threads and metallic shreds on fabrics along with the new summer shades of, faded white, earthy beige, alloy grey, emerald green, tidal blue, rustic red. The designer has sensibly used the Khadi handlooms and village artwork fabrics to preserve the ethnicity of primarily Rajasthan combining design concepts from other cities. Khadi jackets, band galas, Jodhpuri Kurtas formed the exclusive line of his men’s wear line.
With great poise, designer Rohit Kamra expresses, “Woven Gold is a nonprofit organization started by me along with few other designers that helps the village craftsmen earn some revenue and it’s close to my heart! This Lakme Fashion Week I have sketched out some exceptional Rajasthani handiwork on the exclusive menswear with edgy cuts and silhouettes. It will be a brurst through from the monotonous patterns.”
