Fernweh – SS2017

FERNWEH by Nisha Sainani

Nisha Sainani’s Summer 2017 collection titled FERNWEH which means an ache for distant places or wanderlust is inspired by her travels to the majestic, rich and vivacious country of Portugal.

The designer is well known for her travel inspiring her to create collections with unique prints ,hues, fabrics and silhouettes in a non traditional way.

Taking inspiration from Portugal , Sainani mixes prints which have an array of vibrant colours as can be found through the streets of Lisbon. She has also used bright solid hues in fabrics like pure cottons and flowy silks reflecting the country’s fun yet fashionable vibe with her aesthetics.

The colour palette incorporates tones and hues reminiscent of the Portuguese culture , tiles, nature ,architecture and beauty. Nisha has experimented with a variety of silhouettes western and Indian fusion mixing the Portuguese influenced with Indian sensibilities as is her trademark .
