Shruti Kathpal drew inspiration from the classic modern woman who is constantly widening her horizons. Her collection ‘A Luxe Retreat’ from her label Akara at IBFW showed hints of this influence via structure and suave cuts and through the use of feminine fabrics like Lycra, silk, satin, chiffon along with scuba foam and crépe.

The clothes showcased bright morning pastels contrasting vividly with rich jeweled tones and embellished with translucent sequins and aquamarine crystals, highlighting the free spirit of an exuberant lifestyle.

Innovations like the draped sarong over a bodysuit and the zippered black gown with a chain yoke added to the drama of show, while the complementary metallic chains and oxidized gold pieces provided just the right hint of dazzle.
