Ragini Ahuja under her label 'Ikai' showcased an enchanting collection at Jabong Stage during Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. The designer worked with contemporary, unconventional silhouettes and blended them with Indian aesthetics and cultural influences.
The pieces were diverse and ranged from dresses, skirts, kaftans, shorts, tunics, overcoats, blouses, loose jackets, trousers and cover-ups which could be paired together or worn as separates by those who like to tweak their look.
The colour palette combined earthy tones with bold hues and comprised mesmerising, bold, classic shades of indigo, poster blue, concrete grey, burnt brown, smoke black, peach kissed white, venom red, pale nude, deep plum and muted gold.
Each piece was crafted intricately in traditional Indian fabrics and was accentuated with soft structures, pleats, gathers, piping, fabric accents, textures, tie-dye detailing, geometric and animal prints.
For the more daring, certain pieces made use of sheer fabric and georgette in asymmetric shapes for a funky, playful appeal. 'Ikai' by Ragini Ajuja is an intriguing new take on ethnic fashion and is sure to spark the interest of any jet set diva.
