Flair was in the air as Tina Tahiliani-Parikh, Executive Director – Ensemble and Architectural Digest editor Manju Sara Rajan hosted a preview of ‘Sooti,’ an exquisite new line of saris by Raw Mango and garments by Sanjay Garg, the label’s designer at Ensemble’s flagship store at Lion Gate.
The event was yet another testament to Ensemble’s fervent passion for promoting artisanal Indian crafts. Through this glimpse of Raw Mango’s collection, Ensemble showcased a new dimension to India’s traditional textiles and weaves, in tune with this season’s trends.
Viewing it all over masala chai and buttermilk were Masaba, Prerna Goel, Gayatri Rangachari-Shah, Maithili Raghavan, Ratna Krishnakumar, Maneka Thadani, Pratima Bhatia, Hema Patel, Aditi Kothari, Gauri Devidayal, Sangeeta Jindal, Mala Goenka and Nikhila Palat among others.
Guests were seen admiring the pieces from the collection, inspired by the rustic beauty of phentiya (ghaghra) and developed using the age-old kadwa brocade technique of Varanasi which featured patterns etched in gold against a silk background and achieved a remarkable clarity of design with jewel-like enameling.
