After Dark Orientalism and Tribal Cool

Two stand out shows on day four of Amazon India Fashion Week include Ashima Leena and Malini Ramani.

Ashima Leena’s collection was inspired by blue pottery and orientalism amongst an array of other inspirations:

Malini Ramani’s collection was a beautiful homage to tribal motifs and style. Although India has a wonderful tribal community to draw inspiration from but one couldn’t help but think of Pocahontas too.
