Priya Awasthy transported the audience into the “Bengal Renaissance” with her collection for her label Priya. The silhouettes were constructed yet had a flowing contour and showed volume through layering features.

Colours varied within a palette of luxury – from soft shades of nude, mint, beige. She also displayed warm hues of ochre, magenta, wine, henna, and mocha.

The creations showed traditional Indian ensembles such as tunics, pyjamas, kurtas, camisoles, jodhpurs and churidars. The silhouettes displayed organised volume and had been cut and constructed from traditional Indian fabrics such as jaquards, georgettes, raw silk, tussar silks, crepes, satins and chiffons.

The designer's sensibility for incorporation of traditional established embellishing techniques gave this collection a rich but understated appeal. Kantha, tie &dye, aari work and quilting fascinated through a discreet and refined treatment.

This was proven not only through her women's wear but also through her men's wear range. Here she showed sherwanis and kurtas in combination with churidars which were subtly decorated.

Priya Awasthy presented us a look which had an atmosphere of complete dressing. She achieve this through well coordinated ensembles which were put together with a sense for traditional styling blended with a contemporary and modern timeless elegance for social occasions.
