Inspired by Raza’s paintings, Asmita Marwa’s collection of 24 garments at IBFW was a celebration of the infinite power and energy of life, as symbolized by the seed. Titled ‘The Bindu,’ the series featured a palette of solid white, black and red hues in a destination boho-bridal line.
As a pioneer of the green movement, Asmita mostly uses organic dyes and natural fabrics, and her line-up included cool cotton, net, voile, khadi, viscose and chanderi, in languid silhouettes and hand-stitched finishes.
Kerchief hemlines with rows of black tassels ending in a dramatic red bindu gave the collection its unique identity, while the menswear collection revolved around crushed harem pants and colourful lungis worn with white shirts sporting interesting calligraphy.
Making their entry as a cute real-life bridal couple were Anjala Zaveri in a gorgeous lehenga and cropped top and Tarun Arora dapper in red harem pants teamed with a white, calligraphy-printed shirt.
The bold, showstopping entry for Asmita’s collection was made by Rana Daggubati who strutted down the ramp in black harem pants, an acid-green panelled kurta and a luxurious dupatta.
