Lakme Fashion Week - Sabah Khan and her 'TUK TUK collection'

16.3.11

What caught my eye in the newspapers today was this amazingly colorful huge skirt - kinda Manish Arora inspired..

I then learned that Sabah Khan, a yough designer, had this cute tuk tuk collection (tuk tuk is what foreigners call our local tranport - rickshaws)..  Her collection included the bright colors of India, Indian cuts and designs and prints and cute little slogans found on local transport in Mumbai especially and of course, the little tuk tuks printed/embroidered on the clothes and bags.

The bright-coloured posters on the inside of rickshaws, the earthy colour of uniforms, the prominent curve of the vehicle and the simplicity of the rikshaw wallah have been incorporated into the garments.

What a welcome change it is, and strange co-incidence, since yesterday was a 'tuk-tuk' strike due to low gas!!
