Suneet Varma for AVIBFW 2013


Suneet’s collection-The Golden bracelet has been inspired by the clothing and lifestyle of Pompeii and is designed in the themes of Romance, Longing and Wedding. The art and architecture, story and grandeur of Pompeii has inspired many artists, writers and architects worldwide.


The first sub theme- Romance of the collection was all about jewel toned, rich devour velvet line with gold metallic prints and rich beaded tassels. Sheer blouses with impressive embroidery at back, sheer dress with printed stole and intricate gold work, draped skirts with off shoulder corsets and maroon tunics worn with appliqué, halter and razor cut embroidered blouses, and printed velvet stoles were few highlights of this part of the collection.


The second sub theme-Longing was all about the ivory and light blue line in long silhouettes with baroque pearls as adornment. It was a delicate and very subtle collection. Suits teamed with pants, bustier with intricate gold work teamed with sari, silk knits in multi layered floor sweeping dresses, tiered skirts in georgettes with corsets and net jackets, and stylized saris as a dress teamed with sheer blouses were the eye catching aspects of this part of the collection.


Wreath inspired headgear in gold, necklaces in shapes of twigs, spiral shaped long rings, and long spiral armlets were clearly reminiscent of the bygone era. Lastly, the final sub theme- Wedding derived its inspiration from the poetic life of Pompeii. Floral appliqué saris and long dresses, metal crafted corset, anarkalis and saris in cutwork, lehenga with cutwork and frilled jacket, languid silhouettes in peaches and soft pinks, and tulle shrugs worn with lace corsets were star attractions of this part of the collection.


Indrani Das Gupta was donned in a red and gold work, can-can lehenga which was truly traditional in every aspect.


The surprise of the evening was yet to come with Chitrangada Singh walking the ramp in red and gold shimmery lehenga for Suneet Varma as his show stopper. The beautiful show was choreographed by Aparna Anisha Bahl and Tania Lefebvre.
