Sabah KhanвЂ™s Sabashe label presented a quaintly titled collection вЂњTuk TukвЂќ at LakmГ© Fashion Week (LFW), which is another word for the Tangewala or Rickshawala. So how can a popular public transport inspire a designer?
As she travelled daily the pastel uniforms of the drivers, the bright coloured insides of the rickshaw walls, the typical curve of the vehicle made a creative impression on SabahвЂ™s mind. Aimed at trendy, hep youth, the interesting ensembles came alive with the unique theme. Displaying a line of 16 outfits, Sabah had a striking variety which ranged from cute bikinis to hot pants, dhoti dungarees, waist coats, T backs - all ideal for summer wear with many mix and match options.
Patched panelled boleros, pre-stitched fabric blocked saris, shorts, jackets with rickshaw print, shredded waistcoats, cropped long sleeve jacket, tie up blouses, comfy loose pants, panelled long maxis - the look was pure divine kitsch. Mention has to be made of the very cute waist pouches, large colourful bags and neat flat sandals that matched the collection.
The showstopper was BollywoodвЂ™s star from the forthcoming movie вЂњNaughty at 40вЂќ, Yuvika Chaudhary who danced down the ramp in a wired hand painted lehenga and racer back choli with the words вЂњKeep DistanceвЂќ on it.
Using cool linen in the pure and stretch forms with leggings and embellished with digital prints, the вЂњTuk TukвЂќ collection was a fun trendy look at summer gear.
