Designer Vaishali presents Assam inspired creations at LFW

Inspired by the fabulous tribal khadi fabrics created in the hinterlands of Assam by women weavers, Vaishali Shadangule’s collection called “Ravayat” was a compelling stylish offering at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. Turning this magnificent natural fabric into western silhouettes, Vaishali’s creations were a mystical blend of motifs woven with wool into the fabric instead of embroidered. 
 
Ideal for jackets, short dresses, unconventional drapes and pants, the very natural nature of the textiles was the focal point of the collection. 
 
Shades of navy, black and green blended perfectly with ecru, grey and purple to present a soothing collection for summer wear. 
 
Keeping the natural warp, weft and grain of the lovely weaves intact, Vaishali allowed her creativity to move in unison around the textiles without disturbing its structure. The curved hem side tie-up kurta, cross over asymmetric top, shorts, soft jacket, pleated full pants and  draped fitted dress had an enticing beauty as the creations came down the ramp.
 
Wrap handkerchief top over layered matching tunic, floor kissing trench coats, empire line double-breast maxis and flared panelled gowns revealed the glory of the fabric as well as the innovative construction techniques of Vaishali.
 
Keeping the sultry season in mind, Vaishali ensured the ensembles were soft, fluid, flowing with a major thrust towards resort and holiday wear.
 
Go traditional and tribal, declared Vaishali Shadangule with her “Ravayat” collection which was a pleasant fashionable mix of craft and style.
