Designer duo Shivan and Narresh shoot their new Seychelles inspired collection in the beautiful islands

Named EdoMer Series the collection takes inspiration from elements of Seychelles.

Delhi based fashion designer duo Shivan and Narresh chose Seychelles as an inspiration for their latest resort wear and destination wedding wear collection after their maiden trip to the beautiful islands in January 2018.

Pioneers in luxury resort wear the designers’ zest to travel has majorly contributed to their designs and unique creations. Their belief is that a heady mix of social media and travel is completely reinventing the 600 billion dollar fashion industry in India and so they plan annual design inspiration trips to merge fashion with elements from exotic locations like Seychelles. The duo visited Seychelles in January when the destination’s beauty and natural charm turned the leisure trip into a design inspiration trip behind their latest EdoMer series.

At Shivan & Narresh, we are constantly looking for ways of getting inspired and aim to cater to the evolving taste of the new-age luxury traveller. With travel being the essence of our holiday brand, our trip to Seychelles immersed us in the beauty of the African tropics and helped us create a decadent design canvas for its related sartorial aesthetic. Its talcum-powder beaches, lapped by azure waters and lush foliage, along with its luscious fruits and flowers, are a major influence for the latest EdoMer Series. The collection comprises of five exclusive prints: La Digue, Praslin, Eden, Eden Noir and Sour Sop, all drawing inspiration from the true Eden of the world, Seychelles, transforming it into a traveller’s delight”, Shivan and Narresh

The collection was showcased in India at the Amazon Fashion week in March, 2018. To capture true essence of the designs, Shivan and Narresh re-visited Seychelles to conduct a photo shoot of the collection with a coveted crew of celebrity make-up artist Savleen Manchanda, celebrity stylist Mohit Rai, photographer Taras Taraporvala, videographers Elvis and Sonal D’Silva, two models from India and two Seychellois models from Coral Modelling Agency at the same locations which served as inspiration behind the colour scheme and design pattern of the clothing line. The collection was shot at stunning locations including Beau Vallon and MAIA resort on Mahè, Anse Source dÁrgent on La Digue and Enchanted Island Resort on Round Island. Hotel partners including Le Relax Luxury Apartment and Le Relax Beach House in La Digue and Savoy and Coral Strand in Mahè supported the team to carry out the shoot to perfection.

‘The collaboration between a destination and fashion designers is an innovative and refreshing concept that gives birth to a long term conversation about the destination among the right set of audience.  Shivan and Narresh have created a great collection of resort wear and destination wedding wear and I am thrilled with this partnership between two brands which complement each other perfectly“, said Sherin Francis, CEO, Seychelles Tourism Board.
