IBFW DESIGNERS RIDDHI AND SIDDHI MAPXENCARS

— Jasmeen Dugal

Riddhi and Siddhi Mapxencar plunged into the fashion vanguard in 2009 with the launch of their label MapxencaRS. Focusing on contemporary structured looks, crafted with pure silk, linen and cotton, their collections never fail to stir the most harried fashion editor or the most demanding client. In conversation with the stylish sisters in the run up to India Beach Fashion Week.

 

India Beach Fashion Week is very special to us since we have done consecutive seasons here right since the time of its inception. It gets better with each season! And, since Goa is our hometown, showcasing amidst our family, clients and fraternity here is all the more special! Plus the vibe of Goa resonates perfectly with the resort wear we design!

 

This season, our collection is titled Romance Alfresco and the narrative is a romantic stroll in a forest. So the palette envelopes teal, green, beige, gold and shades of pinks, greys and turquoise. The look for Resort 2018 is sharp, feminine for womenswear and edgy, relaxed menswear. Our signature textures and fine fabrics will be an integral part of this collection, as always. The looks which we are really excited about are the over-exaggerated sleeves and drapes in the womenswear. What do we consider more important—a designer's quick ramp-to-retail appeal or creativity on catwalk? A balance of both! We cannot imagine one without the other! We come from the school of thought that creativity should meet commerce. Who says you cannot do business with a dash of creativity? At least it sets you apart.

 

That said, we love classics! And we believe strongly in ethical, sustainable fashion. Designing is an extension of one's personality, faith and lifestyle. And when we create garments, we ensure that the process is ethical and animal cruelty-free. In our personal space, we are against leather and that can be seen in our collections too. And, sustainable fashion is not limited to cotton; it means you should make good use of your ensembles over time and that is why so classics with on-trend detailing always works better.
