ANAVILA SS’19 Closing Day 3 Lakme Fashion Week
Lakme Fashion Week is right around the corner, and we can already feel that fashion week buzz in the air.
We are excited to announce that Anavila will be closing Day 3 with her SS’19 collection, which is a completely organic line of clothing made with natural fabrics and dyes. Please find below a brief note on the same and attached are a few images.
My constant travel to Vietnam and more so to the Sa Pa region has left a lasting impression on me. It has not only creatively inspired me, but the life and lifestyle of the very industrious Sa Pa women have found its way into my routine.

@anavila_m ’s SS’19 collection draws inspiration from local women of the culturally rich and diverse Sa Pa tribes of Vietnam. The juxtaposition of techniques like pleating, cording, embroidery and hand batik along with comfort and functional layering are strong features of the collection. The collection uses natural yarns such as cotton, linen and silk and 100% natural dyes, with textiles made in West Bengal, Bhuj and Sa Pa. #LFWSR19 #5DaysOfFashion #lfw #allInclusiveatLFW @nexaexperience @lakmeindia
Beautifully and very stylishly dressed women from various tribes working tirelessly either on an embroidery piece or stitching a garment or weaving hemp against a picturesque silhouette of paddy fields is a common sight here.
Taking inspiration from how every day, naturally available materials are converted into beautiful products and how creating and consuming in a sustainable and responsible manner is a natural way of life for these women, we present our SS’19 collection inspired by the culturally rich and diverse Sa Pa tribes.
Based on the concept of mobility and minimalism, the collection draws inspiration from the local woman. Techniques like pleating, cording, embroidery, hand batik which are almost found in all their garments have been carefully and selectively used in the making of the garments. The juxtaposition of techniques, comfort and functional layering are a strong feature of our collection.

We have used natural yarns such, as cotton, linen and silk. The unique feature of the collection is that it uses 100% natural dyes apart from being entirely handwoven and handcrafted. We have workspecializingters specialising in natural colours and dyes. West Bengal and Bhuj in India and Sa Pa in Vietnam are the base of most of our work this time.
The colour palette remains close to refreshing natural hues of whites, beige and tones of peach, leaf green, indigo and charcoal.
The silhouettes are easy, comfortable and stylish and can be worn both for leisure and work depending on how you style them.
