Sonam and Paras Modi under their label ‘SVA’ showcased a fabulous, rich, rustic-chic collection titled ‘Kasi’ at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. 
 
The range inspired by India’s cultural heritage comprised saris, tunics, blouses, cropped tops, skirts and jumpsuits fused together with western silhouettes for an edgy, soulful appeal. 
 
Summer hues of tangerine, light yellow, bright beige, blood red, dusky gold and blinding white dominated the colour palette, reminiscent of diverse Indian spices in rich natural fabrics. 
 
Sticking to fabric embellishments, the designers used colour accents, panels, pleats and material beads to contour each piece and further used sheer fabrics along with clean cut-outs at the back to add a sensual touch.
 
A piece that stood out was a translucent sari over a jumpsuit that is perfect for a woman who is not shy of experimenting. 
 
The showstopper, Bollywood star pretty and petit Amrita Rao graced the runway in a gorgeous shimmering dress with see-through material used for gathers at the bottom. 
 
Sultry and sophisticated the collection ‘Kasi’ from the ‘SVA’ label by Sonam Modi and Paras Modi is sure to leave the urban Indian diva’s wardrobe well stocked.
