A veteran in the fashion circuits, designer Swati Vijaivargie unveiled her collection ‘Bagh’ at the Lakme Fashion Weekheld at the St. Regis Hotel on March31.
The show portrayed the intricate medieval Chintz prints, a mesmerizing heirloom of the past, revisiting and reinventing the classic floral print. A mélange of then and now, the collection showcased entrancingly delicate chintz motifs which translated poetry into design. The models walked down the runway wearing breezy outfits that contemporized traditional silhouettes of the flowy abayas, pajamas and chogas to reflect modern sensibilities, while keeping true to the essence of the original inspirations.
Intricate aari embroidery and appliqué work layered delicately over gorgeous shibori prints spelled magnificence. The ramp radiated an elegant yet playful colour palate ranging from ivory to coral, crimson, turquoise, Prussian blue and sage. Tailored to the needs of a chic non-conformist bohemian globetrotter, Swati Vijaivargie brings to you yet another trendsetting range of ensembles.
Actresses like Rasika Duggal, Nauheed Cyrusi, Nushrat Bharucha & Shonali Nagrani embraced the occasion wearing Swati’s outfits and lent their support to the designer.
