Sailesh Singhania’s ‘Winter Rose’ Collection

For his Lakmé Fashion Week runway, Sailesh Singhania showcased his latest fashion line entitled ‘Winter Rose’. Taking inspiration from Indian princesses, he explored the Western influences on their sarees, typically styled for India’s warm climate.

For visits to colder cities of London and Paris, they would restyle their sarees to suit the climate. Yet these gowns would still retain elegance and majesty. The fashion designer explained:

“I am paying homage to the Princesses in the opulent handwoven silk saris and lehengas that lovingly hold in its warp and weft all that was dear to these ‘Beauties with a Purpose’.”

Sailesh Singhania replicated the vintage styles, choosing complex craftsmanship and luxurious colours. Favouring hand-woven textiles, the gowns are created through a fusion of playfulness and high-quality crafting.

With warm splashes of colour, the designer celebrates winter with red, greens, purples and more. All adorned with gold embellishments.

Following the fashions of Indian princesses, the designer has also added long coats to these sarees. From trench to pea coat styles, they emulate the enviable style of these royal figures.
