Inspired by traditional clothing amongst Hmong women and Vietnamese culture, designer Swati Vijaivargie charmed all with her artistic collection titled ‘Rangraez’ at Jabong Stage during the fashion week.
The designer worked with traditional motifs and geometric prints on handmade silks to add a new age, bohemian appeal to her outfits, which comprised of jackets, trousers, tops, blouses, kurtis, coats and tunics. Colours like emerald green, smoke black, burnt tangerine, deep blue and fuchsia added a fun pop artsy tone and were complemented by buttons, hand-cut antique gold sequins and quilting for a sophisticated edge.
A stand out feature within the collection was the delicate play of geometry with embroidery for a striking, individualistic style that was both traditional and modern. Showstopper Neha Dhupia dazzled in an orange coat paired with a cropped top, a skirt and cigarette pants, which beautifully displayed the designer’s flair for layers.
Aesthetically intriguing and fashionably fantastic, ‘Rangraez’ by Swati Vijaivargie was one collection that will appeal to any woman who knows what she wants and more importantly, how to get it glamorously.
