Leena J Singh’s label ‘Ashima Leena’ unveiled their latest collection “Nature’s Grove” which displayed the beauty of nature as an inspiration for her creations at Lakmé Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI.
The prints resonated in a variety of forms to present a grand bouquet of leaves, which were the favoured motif in various hues. The beauty of the bamboo was visualised in black and white, along with water colours that were serene in blue and aqua with a touch of royal blue, which added a regal vibe. A hint of autumn leaves was visible in shades of mustard, while the delicate embroidery depicted in shells and tiny stones were added to complete the look inspired by Mother Nature.
Giving life to the collection Leena paid homage to florals on an elegant mix of fluid and draped satin, silk, and sheer flowing organza. Leena’s silhouettes catered to the stylish desires of contemporary fashion followers,with saris forming a definite entry on the ramp with glittering prints and embroidery.
The fluid capes, flared palazzos, swirling skirts, and practical shirts created a great wardrobe mix for the coming season,while the occasional sheer element in the ensembles was the high point of the collection.
Leena J Singh shared,“I have been a part of the industry for the past 33 years. It's immensely gratifying to come full circle, as I initially showcased my work at the very first Lakme Fashion Week X FDCI in India in 1999 when I served as a board member of FDCI."
Leena Singh’s label ‘Ashima Leena’ offered a grand look at fashion with the “Nature’s Grove” range that was aimed at the 21st century stylish buyer.
