Designer Deepa Chikarmane, who is known for creating Western outfits embellished with a desi touch, is soon launching her third collection, Walking on Sunshine. This collection will be brimming with summery shades such as ivory, custard, glacier, classic and merlot; and is aptly designed keeping in mind the woman who is looking for a break and wants to be relaxed. Walking on Sunshine is a holiday collection to make a woman feel comfortable whether she’s holidaying in a sunny place in India, or in cooler climes in Europe.
The Bangalore based designer, who started her online luxury brand Encrustd in August 2015, is well-known for her easy styles, flattering cuts, lovely stretches, fine slits and aesthetic appeal. And for her gara embroidery meets silk trench dresses and her bouquets of chikankari gracing laced up necklines.
Her to-be-launched collection is inspired by handloom and would have lots of crystallised badla designs and floral motifs.
Deepa’s first collection, Revolution, heralded a revolution in the way women are styled by offering fresh perspectives on dressing. While the second, Diamonds and Rust, recalled a woman’s reflections and rode on a wave of crystals and added sparkle.
