Poetic License

Archana Rao

Archana Rao spins a surprise with every new creation and her inspirations are as varied as her imagination. Rao's Spring Summer 2018 collection draws its moods from Scottish poet George McDonald's poem, The Girl That Lost Things. "Bits of the poem have been translated into print and embroideries, with the colour story starting off as pristine white and ending with a strong midnight blue," she says. The range of dresses and paired ensembles feature various surface techniques-leather cutwork, beadwork and self textures. The shiny glossy textiles add a playful vibe to this new collection, "with fun silhouettes coming together with sheers and floral designs.''
