Gaurika Sharma, founder of Soutache brings forth her new couture collection Ethereal Chic In Smoky Florals for Lakme Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2019/2020. The collection dramatically portrays the charm of Dutch flower painters of the 17th century in its smoky prints, styles, and embellishments. The vibrant floral prints are the backbone of the collection that stormed the runway at Lakme Fashion Week. It was a magical tapestry of sustainable glamour and understated luxury.
Vintage prints and hand embroidery have been a signature style of the brand. For its current assortment, Gaurika has chosen to play with floral patterns that are derived from Dutch floral artworks to create an illusory effect of smoky mixed blooms. The floral designs have been adapted on vintage structured jackets with flowing pleated skirts and hand-embroidered embellishments.
Soutache has made its mark over the years within the country and overseas owing to the versatility of its styles and sustainable fabrics. While the romance of the style Indian traditional attire they eloquently flirt with western styles too. Soutache is a marriage between the soft and fluid with the bold and edgy. The combination of colors, designs, cuts and detailing translate into just one language – feminism with liberation.
