Intricate detailing on Assamese silk in a beautiful color palette is the highlight

 Each ensemble that glided through the show on elegant models was a labour of love and required nearly 45 days to create. The process started from collecting silk from specific Assamese villages, to handcrafting the traditional motifs on it and then finally presenting a memorable creation.

Divya Khosla Kumar

ABSTRACT BY MEGHA JAIN MADAAN 

“Facets” was the title of the collection as Megha was inspired by the archaeological exploration of the Greek era and its many facets that pertained to woman – wisdom, strength, beauty and confidence.

The wonderful designs of ancient Greek pottery that revolved around geometrical and floral motifs were turned into the dazzling, embroidery patterns that glittered with sequins and beads.

The shimmering braiding appeared as the main embellishment detailing throughout the show.
