DIKSHA KHANNA
Runway Report
 

For Amazon India Fashion Week, the muse for Diksha Khanna could've been herself. Paying homage to nature which plays a pivotal role in her life since a young age, she says "I believe you should own the garment and not the other way round" and took these thoughts with her to the drawing board. The collection—crafted with hand-distressed unbleached, chemical-free denim and handloom linen—was packed with some of the prettiest dresses, smart athleisure and denim I've seen.

 

The scrap denim patchwork cape was perfect for a night out on the town while the white trouser with planter pocket, ombré tie-ups, cocoon jackets and denim skirt with paper bag belt will impress your friends and beau. My favourite look? The hand-distressed concept sari! Still, the designer couldn't resist including elegant looks that her youthful client will grow into — a perfect example being handloom linen with intricately embroidered nature-inspired motif. Overall, I loved the way Diksha removed all theories and made abstract silhouette, volume and motif—and stepped away from pre-notions to make the pret line fresh and youthful.
