Drawing inspiration from Slim Aarons’s beautiful photography of the high life, Varsha Wadhwa’s Summer Resort 2017 collection is all about effervescence, retro glamour and artistic charm. The collection entitled ‘La Dolce Vita’ reflects modern day romance, mystique and the good life. The collection is highly contemporary, elegant and exquisite. It includes elegant ponchos, stylish saris and capes, gorgeous white shirts and bralettes, beautiful dresses, kaftans, jumpsuits, crop tops, skirts and gowns in sheer, silk, chiffon, crepe and georgette. The intricate gold thread work, decorative pearl detailing, handcrafted pearl laces, nautical stripes and 3-D floral finishing are truly remarkable. The colour palette is very romantic in soft hues, millennial pink, delicate blush and white. This spectacular anthology is truly fascinating, with a timeless and vintage appeal.
Launched in 2016, Varsha Wadhwa’s eponymous label is a depiction of the bold and modern independent woman. A London College of Fashion graduate, she seeks inspiration from her travels around the world. But her most important source of motivation is her 90-year-old grandfather’s stories. She believes that fashion is multi dimensional and experimental and is well known for her alluring videography and creative concept art installations. She uses cutting edge technology in terms of fabrics, striking Indian embroidery and surface embellishments. Her ready-to-wear, custom-made womenswear and couture collections are very sophisticated, with clean and modern silhouettes.
