Future fashion has always been a fusion of trends from various parts of the world; all the old designs come back with a creative twist on the fashion ramps and soon on the streets. Just Google ‘latest Indian fashion trends’ and you will find a tremendous amount of information on the experiments designers are doing nowadays with Indian and western wear and making fusion wear an obsession amongst the youth.
Indian prints and designs have taken the fashion industry by storm; it was evident in the recent Lakme Fashion Week 2014 held in Lahore, Pakistan. Many designers fused saris with western prints, patterns and paired them up with quirky accessories and blouses. Here are some of the ‘saris with a twist’ from the Lakme fashion Show.
Indian traditional clothing is gaining immense popularity internationally also. Stella Jean Fall 2015 was based on the lines of fusion wear which is in vogue. The main theme of the collection was Himalayas. It included western outfits with elaborate embroideries inspired by Indian Pietra Dura motif. Embroideries have been a favourite when you talk about fusion.
Talking of fusion fashion, the trendy concept is not only limited to ramp models. The fashionistas too love to adorn the fusion style. Celebrities like Deepika Padukone have been spotted sporting the fusion look last year during the Guild Awards. She wore a stunning black and blue lace lehenga by Shehla khan which went very well with earrings and other accessories.
Talking of fusion fashion, it is not restricted to the celebrities and the ramp. The fusion look is now visible on the streets too. It has become a much loved style in the colleges. It not only looks very trendy but it is very comfortable as well.
If you’re looking at exploring this trend then you can get a wide variety of floral, geometric and Indian prints here that would go perfectly well with jeans, skirts, pants, palazzos….actually almost anything! If you want something that stands out from the madding crowd for daily or occasional needs, then try going chic in fusion.
Team it up with printed bandanas as headgears. Jhola bags would go wonderfully well with it along with kolhapuri sorts footwear. Unkempt hair, some rustic bangles, an anklet, wear a pair of cuff earrings, a touch of kohl in your pretty eyes and you’re good to flaunt your very hippie and uber cool fusion look.
