Designer Purvi gives rebirth to glamorous fashion at LFW
Mar '14
Fascinated by nature and all things natural, Purvi Doshi’s collection called “Renaissance” created from the humble basic pure cotton fabric was a memorable presentation at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. 
Red, grey, khaki, deep green, ecru and indigo were combined with cultures and styles of Europe and Gujarat from 1400-1600 centuries and were the inspirations of the garments. 
Playing with silhouettes, Purvi dreamt up long gowns, blends of different sleeve designs, plunging low-back interest but added gathers and pleats to present unconventional garments. Choosing natural dyes from plants, animals and shells, Purvi’s collection also sent out a strong message to preserve the environment with sustainable fashion through embroidery featuring flora and fauna.
The show opened with two majestic full circle floor length gowns with a marked Lambadi touch. Soon flared minis, long sleeved collared kurtas, waisted black dress with print/embellishment and kedia inspired tops swirled down the catwalk. 
Boleros with cut-out sleeves and kurtas with high slit sleeves, printed palazzos and stylish covers completed the collection. Purvi ended the show with multiple colour blocked diaphanous gowns that were luxurious in their style and design.
‘Be fashionable but respect the earth’ declared Purvi Doshi with her “Renaissance” collection.
