Illi Pamunkey : Tribal exposed

Hello Peaches!!
 Remember my last post --> sneek-peek-to-illi-pocahontas
here is it finally!! As much as i enjoyed creating this i hope you love it too and get inspired ^_^


"Illi" means a young girl in sumi tribe of Nagaland and Pamukey was the original name of Pocahontas. Inspired by the Naga and the native Virginia Indian tribe the overall collection has been created to promote tribal wear. And since Naga women don't have our traditional Jackets or coats as such as the men does, here i've helped to bring a traditional yet contemporized traditional wear.
Every ensemble has been woven on a traditional loin loom to promote the traditional weaving and every motif made does not copy any existing motifs. Surface embellishment and embroidery all hand embroidered.


Every garment expresses strong emotions with sophisticated totem touches like the feathers and the fringes that quiver in the breeze. This Ready-to-wear collection tells the story of a new luxury warrior character.
