Twinkle Hanspal

A graduate of the National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi, Twinkle Hanspal honed her creative talents with top designers Ritu Kumar, Anamika Khanna and Ridhi Mehra before starting her label. Twinkle’s eponymous label has always believed in an aesthetical, stylish, fashion statement that had minimalism as its base but inspired by Indian classics. Lavish silks and breathable cottons were given a fashionable twist with Indian silhouettes.

Putting an emphasis on fabric cording, line stitch and dabka embroidery, Twinkle kept the colour palette subtle but with an emphasis on colour blocking. The sari drapes appeared to be a constant inspiration along with the dhoti, which were evident in the long-sleeved, red, maxi dress with a shocking pink inset and long fabric streamers at the ‘V’ neckline.

The white draped long-sleeved, calf-length kurta with a front cascade worn with narrow pants, gave a new fashion direction to the traditional garment.

Another striking white sleeveless midi, with a thigh high slit and a one-shoulder, draped, cascade offered an interesting evening wear option. Twinkle’s multi-panelled, sheer, batwing-sleeves creation with a tiny shirt collar, was in shades of magenta that revealed an asymmetrical hemline and when teamed with slim parallel pants, the look was classic but utterly feminine.

For semi-formal fashion with comfort and a relaxed appeal, Twinkle Hanspal’s look will be much sought-after for easy dressing-up by fashionistas.

Commenting on the latest showcase, Twinkle Hanspal said, “My journey with FDCI x LFW has been very fulfilling. The whole process helped me catalyse & break barriers around inclusivity in fashion. The label is not trend-driven hence the design language is timeless. The future of fashion is inclusive, wearable & conscious which strongly influences our sustainable approach. A minimal yet statement aesthetic ties the brand together with a wide range of elevated essentials.”
