Inspired by Victorian vintage costumes and French renaissance movies, Rajdeep Ranawat’s “Sindh” collection was a fantasy of colours, fabrics, designs and glamour at Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2019. While SVA label by Sonam and Paras Modi made a strong but ultra-glam fashion statement with their collection “Rani SVA” at the event.

“Sindh” was the ethnic version of style that was seen in novels like ‘Great Expectation’ with Estelle the heroine as Rajdeep’s muse for his creations. The “Sindh” collection adopted its colours and designs from the Mughal era with the motifs of the Taj Mahal and Kutch as patterns.

Bringing the beauty of the past on the ramp, Rajdeep had the bandhani of Rajasthan and the gorgeous weaves of Baluchistan that infused his collection to life on the runway. The prints were a mélange of hues so striking that when studded with Swarovski crystals with lacquer finish the ensembles were a visual treat for the senses.

The “Sindh” collection was aimed at men and women who are urban nomads but at the same time revel in the beauty of luxury.

Aimed at the new millennial woman who could be a maharani in her own right, the Rani SVA collection had everything that a bold rebellious ‘Warrior’ lady will desire to enhance her personality.

The SVA look brought modern royalty to the wardrobes of the 21st century ‘Maharanis’. There were intense structured silhouettes that were created with metallic surfaces interwoven into geometric textiles. The hand embroidery was a lush and ornate offering that added immense luxury to the ensembles.

The power suits and stunning creations gradually moved to the traditional saris, which were intricately embellished. Showcasing collections in red, dusty green and black with a hint of dark blue the designing duo displayed a festive line that will be coveted by fashionistas. 

While womenswear was the focal point of the show, SVA added some sherwanis, kurtas, shaded bundi, striped kurta, and a bundi and kurta combo in rich silks for men that will be great additions to the wardrobes of the stylish male. (RKS)
