Lakmé Fashion Week Designer Asa Kazingmei

Designer: Asa Kazingmei

I have to admit I didn’t see this next designer coming.  Asa Kazingmei, a designer from North East India, moved to Mumbai to make it as a designer.  I was already impressed by his gravity defying ensembles and asymmetric glamour but I wanted to understand why his collection stood out from all the other Gen Next designers.  Upon doing a  little digging, his collection made more sense to me.   The interesting shapes and patterns and colors you see throughout his collection are all very traditional looks absorbed from the culture of his home town, Ukhrul, Manipur.  I promise if you just clicked that link you are experiencing the same “Ah-ha” moment I just had.

This year at Lakme Fashion Week, Asa Kazingmei presented his ‘Immortal’ collection.  Have a look…

Asa’s line is clearly not for your average woman but he sure knows how to dominate a runway.  I will be keeping my eyes on this one for sure.
Be sure to check out this great interview with Kazingmei, conducted by greenscarf.com .  So… what do you think about ‘Immortal’?
