Leading designer Indi Yapa Abeywardena is set to grace the runway once again with the eagerly anticipated ‘Serenity by Indi’ Spring and Summer 2024 fashion show presented by Christell Luxury Wellness. Following the resounding success of last year’s event, this year’s fashion extravaganza is scheduled to take place on Sunday, November 19, 2023, at the Cinnamon Grand Colombo. ‘Serenity by Indi’ showcase promises to be a testament to Indi’s unparalleled craftsmanship and artistic vision.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the collection, Indi explained; “The collection is named Serenity, representing the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. All of us face hard times and strive for serenity, peacefulness, and calmness. The collection reflects this state of mind, so everything is very pure, joyous, and soothing at the same time.”
Inspired by the concept of serenity evoking calm, peace, and tranquillity — the collection transports attendees to a place of pure joy and soothing elegance. ‘Serenity by Indi’ features exquisite fabrics, fusion silhouettes, intricate weaves, and hand-embellishments, culminating in a harmonious blend of artistry and modern craftsmanship.
The colour palette characterised by summerish and lively tones, introduces a hint of vintage and earthy hues for added charm. Carefully curated soft hues showcase a collection that encapsulates the essence of easing the calmness, striking a balance between cosy comfort and chic sophistication.
Indi’s ‘Serenity’ collection boasts a range of neutral, earthy, and serene colour palettes. From apricot summer coloured symphony with golden glimmers to ink blue and shades of lavender, and warmer beige enhanced with glistening golden surfaces and a touch of black. The meticulously crafted pieces include sheath dresses, signature jackets, stylish sarees, asymmetric free-flowing skirts, A-line drapes, and more.
The runway will feature two captivating stories, including a showcase of Indi’s signature bridal designs for the upcoming season. This grand event is a testament to Indi’s dedication, presented through her brand House of Indi, standing as a meditation on balance—a seamless blend of timeless silhouettes cast in a contemporary light.
