Shweta Puthran’s eternal love for Southern India is reflected in the latest collection of her signature label – Southern Sway. Rich hues of ox-blood, marsala, mustard, grey, mauve, olive green, midnight blue and black were used as highlights on printed fabrics that ranged from flat chiffon and cotton silk to cotton satin, neoprene and scuba at her show at IBFW.
Her designs, inspired by sculptures, architecture and art forms of the south, featured knotted asymmetric halters, togas, sleek long-sleeved jackets and printed jumpsuits. Highlights included the shimmering long-sleeved gowns and layered tops with flared skirts.
The final asymmetric cocktail creation was particularly stunning. Equally captivating were the leg and shoulder harnesses in dull gold, complemented by thread and bead bangles which created a fabulous impact on the ramp.
