Raghavendra Rathore passed on a unique message when he displayed his spring/summer collection at the Delhi Fashion Week (DFW) late Tuesday evening.

Though his collection exuded exotic Asian feel, what really struck the fashionistas was the bandanas that the models flaunted.

Sources say that the designer used these bandanas to spread the word of peace and as a means to protest against violence. It is believed that Mr Rathore decided to take this step because India has experienced several violent attacks in past couple of months.

The bandanas were limited to red, black and white colours, so that they matched the outfits.

Besides this, the designer successfully supported the use of locally manufactured cotton by showcasing beautiful 100 percent home-grown cotton creations.

The dresses were presented in elegant hues of red, black and white, streaked with some burgundy, military green and silver. Rajasthani rich culture was clearly visible in subtle, old-styled prints and motifs.

Womens-wear was soft and flowy but also boasted clean cuts and sophisticated styles.

Men's collection included long shirts, fitted or very loose trousers, tailored and unstructured jackets with loose drawstrings.
