LFW Winter Festive 2017 came to a close last month, marking the end of 5 days of running around from show to show in heels with 2-3 outfit changes a day and little to no time to eat. It's glamorous and fun but exhausting, really. One of the things I love about LFW is that it dedicates an entire day to Sustainable Fashion and designers that support local handicraft. Ever since I began blogging, I've been more mindful of the purchases I make, taking the time to research brands and their manufacturing processes to ensure I buy the right product, ultimately leading me to spend less and less on fast fashion. I'm also in the process of building a capsule wardrobe, in the hopes that it encourages me to not mindlessly consume like I used to. I'll keep you posted on how that goes.
I had the pleasure of meeting both Jaya and Ruchi from Indigene, a conscious clothing label based in Delhi, at LFW. Their label lends a new perspective to that which is made by hand, translating traditional handcrafting techniques into clothing that is unique, wearable, stylish and most importantly, ethically crafted. Their Pre-Fall'17 collection at LFW featured pleated, double-layered silhouettes, patchwork, relaxed-fit pants and midi skirts in khadi silk and chanderi cotton. The color palette was predominantly shades of indigo with a mix of neutral, earthy tones. Total love!
P.S. The dress I'm wearing will be available to buy in October.
