It was a fashion lesson on Indian history and craft when Shruti Sancheti presented her collection called “Swadeshi” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013.

Deeply inspired by the Indian independence movement started in Bengal during the British Raj, showing under her label Pinnacle, Shruti’s garments evoked the look and feel of that era through fabrics and embellishments.

Reviving the dying art of indigenous weaving with the help of the Maharashtra Weavers Board – Indrayani, the gorgeous handlooms were a stylish offering to the trendy 21st century dressers.

The 100 count finely woven cotton with interesting checks and stripes was in English hues to recreate the colonial flavour. Embellishments comprised Kantha while surface ornamentation was lavish. Shruti’s trendy asymmetric silhouettes added to the very patriotic look.

It was superb resort wear in pure cotton in a profusion of designs and colours that livened the stage. Draped sun dresses had checked covers, machined waistcoats were paired with maxis, shorts under wrap skirts with puff sleeve blouses looked cool and the pleated gathered skirt with halter was ideal holiday attire.

Wide cowl pants, sack dresses with uneven hemlines, two saris with embroidered cholis and the coloured blouses added to the look.

Prachi Desai, Bollywood’s young spritely star of many hit films looked pretty in an ecru sari with coloured border and a long sleeved embellished choli.

Here was a collection from Shruti Sancheti that recreated history for women who want to take a nostalgic fashionable trip down memory lane.
