|Rajesh Pratap Singh SS15|
Over at Rajesh Pratap Singh, it was all about his Blue Blooded tribe. Most of the clothes were created from indigo dyed raw selvedge denim not only because of the designer's love for the fabric, but also to revive the dying craft of creating the fabric. Furthermore, the production involves using pure natural indigo and non-toxic raw denim which makes the process extremely environmentally friendly thereby supporting ethical fashion.
Silhouettes (for women) were very androgynous. Next season, girls will be seen wearing bow ties and suspenders!There were Nehru jackets for women worn over white kurta shirts, masculine overalls and jeans featuring large, rolled cuffs and boyish Bermuda shorts amongst others all paired with industrial looking Doctor Martin style boots.The pristine white dress seen on Carol Gracias has gone down on my wish list as did the white kurta, cropped pants and the jacquard stole. Despite the whole boyish theme, cute polka dots and quirky embroideries made their way into the collection adding an element of playfulness.
Ethically manufactured fabrics, innovative textiles and attitude packed clothes made Rajesh Pratap Singh's show one of the most talked about of the season.
