‘Sva’ By Sonam And Paras Modi at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter 2013

From the land of the Rajputs and Maharajas came the ‘SVA’ label by Sonam and Paras Modi with their collection “Aangan” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013.


Opening the presentation with a very energetic dance by actress Amanda, the first entry set the mood as a white long skirt with dramatic peacock embroidery floated down the ramp. The asymmetric peach kurta with a contrast green yoke was followed by a navy gown with sheer back. The brown panelled dress with a beige bodice and the multi coloured printed lehenga, and the blue cutwork long creation over a white skirt were a colourful rustic line.

Detailing was restricted to prints embroidery and little tiny cloth buttons, which edged dupattas, hemlines and sleeves or covered the garment.

Men’s wear was basic but with colour – white sherwani with woven front border, a cream one with embroidered epaulets, printed dhoti with brown jacket - gave men’s wear that simple rustic charm.

Choosing the perfect showstopper Bollywood actress, Prachi Desai in a lehenga, a crafted encrusted choli with multitude of tiny cloth buttons and dupatta was the perfect end to the show, which was a tribute to Indian hand work.

“Aangan” by Sonam and Paras Modi for their label ‘SVA’ was an exotic collection from the wonderful state of Rajasthan that will appeal to women who want to add that majestic touch to their wardrobe.
