Mumbai, Sunday, August 5, 2012: Swati Vijaivargie Jain pays a tribute to her roots. Hailing from Jaipur, Rajasthan her collection revolved around the concept of Indian celebration with traditional Rajasthani work.
Using rich and flamboyant fabrics such as silks, georgettes, crepes and chiffons, the shade card focused on bright, fun colours such as tones of red, yellow, orange, pink, blue, green and purple, which beautifully reflected the idea of colourful Indian festivals and celebrations.
Swati showcased a vast range which comprised jackets, stoles, dresses, saris, kurtas and ghagras that were free flowing with an air of sensual fluidity.
Taking a unique route by using fabric on fabric detailing, sequins as well as slender beads, the designer accentuated the silhouettes further by adding a dash of modern glitter.
The collection also included pieces which sported funky prints of Indian cultural importance such as peacocks, lotus, Ganeshas as well as parrots for a glam-quirky edge.
