Looking up to the sky for inspiration, Ken Ferns hit upon the moon as his muse and called his collection "Moon Rise" at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013.
Incorporating a slight mysterious futuristic appeal into his collection, Ken's colour story had those magical dimensions of the moon's surface and luminance. Sedate ivory, liquid gold, dusty beige and shades of deep greys, gave the colour palette a romantic touch. Adding a slight 50's influence with hints of the New Age touches; there was balanced construction and a gentle flow in the garments. Prints revolved around trees and creatures of the night to complete the inspired look. Fabrics were soft and fluid with satin, crepe, georgette and silk allowing the garments to create the sexy image.
Very elegant with touches of Red Carpet glamour, the moulded mini, slim gown with pleated sleeves, the rigid plastic curves on the shoulders of most creations, figure hugging corsets and fluid long skirts were romantic additions to the collection.
Men's wear was restricted to ombre print suits with rear slits in fabrics that matched the theme of the collection.
Adding more drama Ken designed headgear resembling bare trees, which added to
the Moon Rise inspiration.
Bringing his show to its glamorous end was Pratiek Babbar in a stylish printed suit and his sexy co-star Amyra Dastur from the film "Issaq" wearing a sultry corset and printed silk skirt.
"Moon Rise" by Ken Ferns offered the fashionable global woman many formal wear options that will make her a trend setter.
