LFW sparkles with Shruti's Pondicherry inspired 'Le Pondi'

Inspired by the beauty of Pondicherry Shruti Sancheti’s “Le Pondi” collection for Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 had all the gentle tranquil influences of the city.
 
Merging the grandeur of French and European influences with Tamilian sensibilities; the collection was a fashionable mix of intricately woven Temple weaves with a trendy twist given to the pastel colour borders. Expertly woven with a 150 thread count, the base fabric was teamed with silk, natural calico cotton, lace and cotton silk.
 
Blossoms appeared artistically on the fabrics in the form of screen and block prints to add a European-Boho ambience to the collection. Working around romantic silhouettes that swirled down the ramp; Shruti presented midis, maxis, voluminous jumpsuits, asymmetrical dresses and jackets with marked French influence. 
 
Indian silhouettes were added as kurtas, tunics and saris brought in the oriental flavour on the catwalk. Colours created a riot of hues as aqua, coral, canary, moss and mint in green shades and powder blue, yellow, lilac; bubble gum pink brought a refreshing feel on the catwalk.
 
Detailing was in the form of long/short stitches, cutwork, French knots and cross stitch. Swallow tail tops, lace yokes for the back, sleeves and as edging for hemlines, interesting apron-like layers over maxis and tiny floral cutwork bolero gave the collection the finishing touch. Saris too were treated with prints or lace to match the theme of the show. 
 
The show witnessed the who’s who of the town including included: Sangita Jindal, Rashmi Thackeray, Shaina NC Urvashi Lottakiya, VJ Andy and Kim Sharma, applauding for Shruti. 
 
Ideal for the globetrotting woman, who adores the crafts, weaves and textures of India, Shruti Sancheti’s “Le Pondi” collection had marked international appeal.
