Fashion and fusion


AMETHYST IS holding an exhibition featuring the creations of three designers — Pujaarya, Yellow Leaf and India India and accessories from Plum Tree, starting today.

Maitreyi's `Pujaarya' is the essence of fusion wear. Available in a range of fabrics, the collection is embellished with hand and machine embroideries. It also experiments with geometric designs.

Tradition with a contemporary twist, that's what Amita Gupta's `India India' is all about. She has worked closely with master craftspersons in Rajasthan, Kutch, Varanasi, Madhya Pradesh and Dhaka. Marked by bold and innovative designs, hand woven and hand dyed, Amita's collection comes in natural fabrics such as silk and cotton.

Sonya Khan's `Yellow Leaf' remains committed to fine classic clothing using natural linen, cotton, khadi and silk. The styling here is largely dictated by the fall and feel of the fabric. The embellishments are simple and unfussy, enhancing what is essentially wearable.

If you're looking for accessories to match your attire, Plum Tree, a design house in Bangalore, has a range of exquisite, hand crafted bags and footwear. Check it out at Sundar Mahal, 14, Padmavathi Road, Jeypore Colony, Gopalapuram.
