Fashion designer Punit Balana's collection called "Rabari" presented on the fifth day of the Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2019 was an ode to textiles and amazing embroidery created by the Rabari women. Punit’s USP for his creations has always been his exclusive block prints, organic dyes, colours, eco-friendly techniques and silhouettes.

Balana ensures that the theme of his collections always revolve around glamour. The colour card was dominated by black along with dry henna and buttercup. The glamourous creations would also fit into the wardrobe of the brides for the coming wedding season, when the ladies shop with their entourage for the Mehndi/Sangeet as well as the biggest day of their lives.

The amazing embroidery was intricate amla, mirror work and dori work that added to the glamour of the creations.

At the show, Hindi film actor Shilpa Shetty made a rocking entrance as she swished down the ramp in a swirling, shimmering, lehenga and a dazzling mirror work halter choli, accessorised with giant latkans and a potli bag. (RKS)
