Pallavi Jaikishan at Lakme Fashion Week
25 th Jul 2012

Veteran designer Pallavi Jaikishan celebrates four decades in the industry, starting this August up to August 2013. The first in a line of many celebrations will see Pallavi Jaikishan showcasing her creations for the first time at the Lakme Fashion Week on 3 August 2012. Her journey in Indian fashion has been rather interesting- as she started without any formal education. "I remember making my own clothes as a teenager; I'd always be curious about different embroideries and fabrics. Even my friends would ask me for advice regarding their clothes, so I started out at an informal level and learnt everything on the job," says Jaikishan. Pallavi has a fair share of memories to delve into. Even as she readies herself for the first- ever show at LFW, she points out that the timing couldn't have been better. "I wanted to celebrate this milestone by doing something new. So LFW sounded like the ideal platform," she announces. Over the last 40 the years, Jaikishan has become the go-to name for couture as well as bridal wear. She is known for her heavy embellishments (Pearl Embroidery, Chinese embroidery combined with chikankari, Gota work and Zardozi embroidery on Brocade) and the use of pure fabrics- be it tulle, georgette, velvet, chiffon or silk. The couturier has also successfully married Indian bridal wear to European elements such as French lace, lame/, guirpure and velvet ribbons. Pallavi has worked on four breathtaking collections for the forthcoming LFW in her signature style that blends traditional hand embroideries with modern day silhouettes, with specially woven fabrics with real zari. A modern day collection of lehengas, saris, jackets and tunics that make a statement at a destination wedding on a beach in Phuket to a Medieval castle in Europe, or a grand wedding in Jagmandir. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Shop Indian Designer Clothes at Strand of Silk
