Lakme Fashion Week - Preview - Gurpreet Kaur

What is a fashion week without its accessory designers? Every season, a brood of young designers adds dazzle to the couture and prêt ensembles showcased on the coveted runway. The truly fashionable know that it’s not just a dress that makes a statement, that it is crucial to pair it with the perfect handbag and the right pair of shoes. And therein lays the importance of the accessory designers. The right accessories have become an integral part of styling, and are fast emerging as an essential partners to designer clothes.

Taking this sartorial partnership to its next level is ‘Sarang by Gurpreet Kaur’, a unisex brand for garments and accessories. The brand puts forward its first collection 'The Love Cart’ in the Lakme Fashion Week Winter festive. Gurpreet promises to adorn this winter season with warmth and love, as embodied in her collection. Drawing inspiration from her rustic roots, and finding her muse in her memories of childhood years spent in a village, she has created a line of accessories that she says celebrates happiness in the simplest aspects of life. Crafting accessories from fabrics like pure silk and velvet combined with stones, wood and simple embroidery and hand skills, she intends to make ‘The Love Cart’ a joyous celebration of love through seasons. The collection is intended to compliment a wide variety of clothes, playing on unusual form and unique textures, to create signature pieces that stand out every time.

Gurpreet shared her mood board, the starting point for collection, as it reflects the emotions she was experiencing while she worked on the designs. Hope her collection brings a ray of sunshine to the winter cold.

I love designers who really, truly put their heart and soul into their collections. Seeing pieces that are reflective of their thoughts and emotions is so much more beautiful than seeing pieces a designer created to merely "get noticed."
