Last week I headed down to Play in LKF for the second anniversary party of Kanchan Couture, the fashion line designed by the lovely and extremely talented Kanchan Panjabi (in the pink hat above). The new collection was also debuted in a runway show down the centre of the packed venue, featuring some Sassy girls as models! In designing her latest collection, Kanch was inspired by the idea of recycling and cutting out waste in the production process, and also by blue and white porcelain. There also seemed to be influences in the line both from the 1980s in the bold bright colours, and also from the 1950s with the nipped in waists and full skirts on display. It was a great event, and I was able to admire Kanchan Couture’s new branding by ufo republic which was in evidence all the way down to the little blue and white cupcakes.
Kanchan Couture is run out of a studio on Wellington Street, and you can make an appointment to view the latest designs there.
