With a course in styling from Central Saint Martins London, Divya Sheth created a mélange of the East and West for her collection at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. Presenting a mix of Far East motifs and silhouettes with Indian textiles; the stylish line inspired by Mary Cassatt's "Lady at the Tea Table" was a delightful blend of traditional ikat, khadi and Jamdani weaves with ample doses of intricate embroidery.
Borrowing motifs from Japanese, Moroccan and English tableware and tiles, Divya went in for totally unconventional silhouettes that were inspired by the very geometric tea bags and saucers. Elegantly styled one-shoulder dress had cascading saucer like motifs down the front.
With white as the base, the pottery blue designs were delicately splashed on the slim trousers, asymmetric summer dress, as well as sultry cocktail creations and draped gowns. The beautiful thread embroidery was the cynosure of all eyes featuring the Chinese temples and cherry blossoms while the Ajrakh prints with the unusual clamp dyeing was another interesting part of the collection.
For a perfect English Tea Party appearance Divya Sheth's diversely inspired line will have great international appeal.
