SISTERHOOD OF STYLE
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.
