Sis­ters and de­signer Ruchi Roongta and Rashi Agar­wal made their de­but in Lakme Fash­ion Week for sum­mer re­sort 2016. Their last col­lec­tion Dark Ro­mance had a colour story of muted mus­tards, deep pur­ples, bur­gundy, earthy greys and browns with a touch of bright yel­low and or­ange to cre­ate an om­bre ef­fect.

The sis­ters be­lieve in do­ing eth­nic and bri­dal wear “with a twist in­stead of fol­low­ing a con­ven­tional three piece rule”. Fab­rics like crepe, chif­fon, silk satin, silk habu­tai, raw silk are used to cre­ate pieces that though clas­si­fied as eth­nic wear, have an el­e­gant con­tem­po­rary feel. They also ex­per­i­ment with em­broi­dery tech­niques such as tra­di­tional zardozi work with metal­lic fil­ing, 3D flower em­broi­deries, thread­work and but­ter­fly ap­pliqué. Their forth­com­ing col­lec­tion—A Lost Soul will use lay­ers to play with sheer and translu­cent fab­rics.
