The 27-year-old Indian designer Nikhil Thampi will yet again showcase his latest collection at the next LFW/Summer Resort 2014. The ‘LFW baby’ confesses that fashion ‘happened’ to him. And he adds, “I’m not a very expressive person, and so designing has become a way for me to say best what I want.”
In contrast to his previous line, that was mainly characterized by monotones and stark contrasts, this collection features lot of experiments colours. “I always thought I was colour-blind, until now. The collection is from a prêt angle. I’m attempting a different and more bold look from my earlier collections,” he clarifies. At the same, time he draws the attention to the commercial/editorial aspects as well.
“The last aspect basically determines if the collection will appeal to buyers and hence if it would sell. The trend this time is relaxed silhouettes”.
