Vaishali Shadangule returned to Paris Fashion Week with a new showstopper and an extraordinary collection that demonstrates her love for desi fabrics. Radhika Apte, who turned muse for Vaishali, strode the ramp in a creation inspired by the sea.

No stranger to breathing new life into Indian weaves, the designer's showcase Satori was spectacular and gave a glimpse of 'how imaginative contemporary Indian handwoven textiles can be'. 

Clad in head-to-toe in blue, Radhika's outfit -- was made with repurposed leftover material -- was an ode to the ocean.

The choker on her neck drew inspiration from the 'intricate patterns of the Indian floral and fauna'.
