Mumbai, 3rd February 2018: Inspired by the traditions of North East India, Sanjukta Dutta’s collection at 6Degree Studio during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 was a carefully crafted and ethereally unique blend of history, art and culture.

Rich, luxurious handloom fabrics comprised silk, cotton, silk-blends, silk yarns, mulberry-silk and brocade that arenative to India’s seven sister states- Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura were the highlight of this collection.

The silhouettes were beautifully constructed with saris, blouses, lehengas and cholis, which made their way down the ramp in opulent shades of gold, beige, emerald, sapphire, saffron, dusky lavender, onyx, blush, rust and shimmering off-white. Being couture, many of the ensembles within this collection required months to fully complete, due to the extensive attention to detail and the handmade aspects of the fabrics.

Sanjukta, a specialist at creating ensembles from the Mekhela Chador of Assam turned the beautiful weave into stunning entries.

An ensemble that stole the spotlight was a regal Mekhela Chador luxuriously embellished with antique, gold, zari work and sequined flowers. Another interesting twist was the addition of a structured collar on some of the blouses, which added a more modern-urban yet posh vibe to the collection.

True to her label’s signature aesthetics, the fabric for each ensemble was hand woven and featured authentic symbolism and motifs showcasing the natural beauty, that is, the flora and fauna of Assam juxtaposed with geometric accents in her signature motifs and authentic Assamese Muga and pat weaves.

The collection also had one ensemble for men, a pale gold formal kurta paired with deep rust toned dhoti pants.

Bollywood beauty Dia Mirza looked gorgeous as she stopped the show with a full-sleeved ruby red blouse, matched with ochré -gold toned sari with shimmering embroidery that comprised gold zari work, stones and sequins.

Aimed at women who love to dare to be different and aren’t afraid to bask in the limelight, Sanjukta Dutta’s collection was a ‘must have’ for the women of India who like to push boundaries in style.
