Designer Asmita Marwa’s Summer/Resort 2013 collection called “Magic Moon” was showcased at the Lakme Fashion Week this March in Mumbai. The collection was inspired by her meeting with a real life gypsy woman and was created for a 21st century woman wishing to look mysterious, feminine and stylish, in other words, an “Urban Gypsy”.
Asmita Marwa LFW Summer-Resort 2013 Collection
This line of clothing is very wearable and has a variety of prints, fabrics and surface techniques combined to give us a collection that is traditional yet contemporary. In keeping with the theme, actress Shriya Saran was the show stopper and walked the ramp looking gorgeous in Asmita Marwa’s creations.

Asmita used a lot of mirrors, shells, Japanese floral prints and antique work mediums with a range of cuts and styles to give her creations a gypsy look. The collection boasted of fitted pants, kurtas, collage skirts, hand-quilted jackets, short kaftans, palazzo pants, asymmetrical dresses, stoles and shirts with artist Vaikuntam’s prints on them.

Actress Shriya Saran walked the ramp looking like a mysterious woman. She wore an inky blue dress with sketches of Vaikuntam’s portraits printed on the dupatta that was draped sensuously around her. She also had a mirror and shell panel attached to her waist with shells dangling down the sides. Her hair was plaited to one side with a red bindi and lipstick to complete her look.
