Giving eco-organic fabrics the luxe royal touch Divya Sheth presented her collection “Sultana on Safari” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015’s Indian Handlooms and Textile Day! Aimed at the jet-setting global traveler who believes in sustainable fashion, Divya ensured that her fabric choice was pure hand spun and woven Khadi, organic silk and silk chiffon, which were given an innovative touch with traditional reinvented Kalamkari and Ajrakh in natural dyes.
To make life really easy for the worldwide tourist, there were summer trench coats with spacious pockets for Ipad, mobiles and passports. How crafty! For the sporty ones, the addition of convenient pockets for binoculars so that hands were kept free was great. With the ‘trench’ as the inspiration, the collection added trench anarkalis, which would be ideal for that destination wedding far away from home. Colors were kept very earthy with beige, brown, leaf green and rust adding to the natural tone of the collection. Detailing that was impressive were the slit sleeves, floppy collars, tail coat tunics, beautiful cut-work sleeves and hem edges, the very interesting dhoti skirts and bat-wing covers.
Added to the look was eco-wood and silver jewelry decorated with kachchi embroidery. Mix fashion with an organic flavor and turn into a “Sultana on Safari” declared Divya Sheth with her colorful collection. We’d definitely love one of these outfits! What do you guys think?
