INIFD x LST present: Aman Khaneja at London Fashion Week

The Indian based Inter National institute of Fashion Design (INIFD) x The London School of Trends (LST) showcased the capsule collections of 18 student designers and graduates from across India.
Aman takes inspiration from locks and shackles to express the struggle which women continue to face in the patriarchal society.

Giving a positive outlook Aman uses a laser print of eagles in flight on a short quilted jacket to depict the freedom which all women deserve.

To celebrate the work of Indian artisans and the joy of the Western market, Aman uses Katdana (or cutdana ) embroidery on two tone velvet Western style dress. This style of embroidery is the use of beads which have been cut at specific angles to reflect light. These beads are sewn on to fabric with thin thread to create patterns. Traditional patterns are floral or geometric. Aman choses the geometric design.

Golden Nalki tubular embroidery adorns the neckline of a organza capelet like a statement necklace. These handcrafted golden embellishments brings an age old tradition to the collection

Aman uses the Western tartan for his loose Indian style trousers and pairs with a cropped blouse with appliques of sleek stripes developing a distorted tartan effect.
