Kolkata, Dec 20 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS): Designer duo Dev R Nil announced Cotton Council International’s (CCI) fourth edition of fashion design contest – Let’s Design- in Kolkata on Tuesday.
This initiative is aimed to give aspiring designers an opportunity to showcase their talent and creativity with the country’s most important textile fibre-cotton.
“We want to encourage young designers to use cotton. Take the basic material i.e. cotton and present it extraordinarily,” he added.
Dev said, “We played with all the colours and especially with strips in cotton using colour blocking techniques and by combining colours. There is also Batik print in contemporary form of cotton.”
“Some of the cotton outfits have little bit of silk, linen or lycra fabric combined with it but incorporating cotton as the major fabric,” Dev said.
The theme for this season reality design series Let’s Design contest is ‘Design for your icon,’ and it will only incorporate cotton.
