Designer Debashri Samanta showcased a quirky, fun collection titled 'Summer Houses' at Jabong Stage during Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014.


Using handloom fabrics such as Jamdani from West Bengal; the range with its urban cosmopolitan Indian vibe comprised dresses, long tunics, extended rompers, shrugs, shorts, skirts and tops.

Shades such as sky blue, Popsicle orange, pale beige and cloud white gave each piece a playful ardour. The collars of each piece were structured, slim crafted in solid colours and further accentuated by pop coloured piping, minimal layering, sheer accents, soft textures and subtle cut-outs.



Embellishments were kept simple and featured printed houses in bronze, black, grey and orange paired with solid coloured collars for a balanced appeal. A piece which stood out was a gorgeous orange sari, sporting delicate weaves and metal detailing along with a bold bikini top.

Isha Kedia, under her label 'Klitche', showcased a trendy nature-meets-geometry inspired collection at Jabong Stage during Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. The designer stuck to simple silhouettes like dresses, trousers, tunics, skirts and gowns crafted in light fabrics like chiffon and organza.



Keeping in mind the season, each piece was structured lightly and accentuated with feminine, floral elements that kept the range fresh, versatile and charming. Extended tapered shoulders were the highlight of the collection and gave off an edgy-chic vibe complemented by a colour palette with tints and shades of white, black and blue kissed grey.

A unique concept which graced each piece was the use of fabric elements - layering, piping, pleats and moulded textures, which were worked to contour each form, to envelop the body in a myriad contrasting lines and curves that made for an intriguing display.



One outfit which stole the show was a gorgeous white dress with circular black work and a fan-like bottom in sheer fabric that oozed sensual sophistication.
