CHENNAI: FabIndia’s Red and Black collection includes a striking range of garments and accessories — flaunting the elegance of red and intensity of black. The collection of Indian and Western wear, jewellery and evening bags done in the two colours is being promoted in all FabIndia stores across the country.
The range includes A-line kurtas highlighting bold patterns created using traditional craft techniques such as ikat, mirror embroidery and applique, silk angrakha styles with classic soof embroidery along with flared kurtas, short kurtas, tops, skirts, waistcoats, harem pants and dresses in trendy cuts and silhouettes. Much significance is given to the traditional designs, given the store, which has its presence in 75 cities across India, employs artisans living in rural areas. This initiative is part of FabIndia’s mission to blend indigeneous craft techniques with contemporary designs, and encourage the use of natural fibres.
That apart, the Red and Black collection also includes silk tunics, tiered dresses with abstract prints, short kurtas, waist coats featuring mirror work and classic ghera skirts with block prints.
The new collection also has an extensive range of stoles and dupattas, done using shibori, bandhani and other prints.
