Pallavi Jaikishan - Debut after 40 Years
09 th Jul 2012
Pallavi Jaikishan remembers doing thwo-hour session of knitting crochet bags after schools: "My grandmother would insist that I learn stitching and knitting. Often, I would look for an opportunity to wriggle out of it so that I could go out and play. But today, I realise that it served as my initial training of sorts", she explains. Jaikishan is ready for her first ever show at Lakme Fashion Week after completing 40 years in the fashion industry: "I wanted to celebrate this milestone by doing something new. So, the Lakme Fashion Week sounded like the ideal platform", she announced. For the Lakme Fashion Week, she is specially using woven zari for her line: "Floral motifs are a part of my signature style but this time, I have broken my collection into two segments. The first has a theme called ‘Clouds with a gold lining’, with a colour palette of pale gold paired with cream and a greenish tinge. But more importantly, it is light-weight and has no flower embroidery at all. I am looking forward to seeing how it will be received", she explained. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Shop Indian Designer Collections at Strand of Silk
