Swati Kalsi's collection was an ode to traditional Sujani embroidery and Priyanka Ella Lorena Lama's USP was minimal measurements and stitching at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016.
Priyanka Ella Lorena Lama's (PELLA) collection 'Maitake’ saw outfits in light handwoven pure eri, ahimsa silk, cashmere and pashmina.
The ingenious surface texturing with reclaimed pine wood and silk thread-work gave the collection a futuristic touch.
Swati Kalsi's collection was dedicated to textiles and the craft behind it.
Her collection, Monad, saw gorgeous silhouettes in black, ivory and grey.
Here are the different looks from these collections.
