Sailesh Singhania’s models sashayed along the ramp at LFW AW ‘17 in opulent handwoven silk saris and lehngas in ruby red, celebratory orange, royal purple, fuchsia pink, emerald green with luxurious vintage gold zari work.

The collection called ‘The Winter Rose’ is deeply inspired by the westernised interpretation of the sari usually worn by the Princesses in warm climate of India to acclimatise to the cold, windy London and Paris during their visits while fully retaining their opulence and glamour.

The handmade beauties are lovingly woven with motifs including roses, whimsical Hyderabad chandeliers, tea pots and tea cups, pattern of a beloved Jaipur ‘jharokha’ and such iconography.

The Hyderabad-based designer pushes the boundaries on the perception of handwoven textiles by infusing playfulness while tightly retaining the highest quality of the craft of hand weave. The western element is enhanced with long over-coats, trench, pea coats with high collars.
