Finding inspiration from her trip to Venice Biennale last year, Veda found herself falling in love with the cracks, stains, stone walls and eroding marble floors of the ancient Venetian structures, which on further exploration she based her compilation on, a year later.The organic nature of the textures set into the stone found itself to be a base of the entire collection, which was apposed with the clean cut lines of the structurally framed silhouettes that comprised evening gowns, dresses and constructed separates.

Versatile fabrics ranged from silk georgettes to cotton silk in a monochrome color palette, which was highlighted by white, lilac, lemon yellow, powder blue and wine.An overlapped sleeveless cropped top styled with a half and half pencil and circle skirt, was eye catching and unique. Additionally a short cape with a cropped beaded top and a sheer maxi skirt gave prominence to the ‘Veda-ness’ of the collection.
