Dressed in traditional Marathi attire,actress Juhi Chawla today paid a befitting tribute to weavers on the runway as a show stopper for designer Shruti Sancheti.

Working for over a year with the Maharashtra State Handlooms Corporation founded in 1971,Shruti’s collection,called “Saaj”,was a tribute to weavers of Maharashtra State Handloom Corporation at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013.

The collection had Indian traditional silhouettes like ghagra,anarkali,palazzos,lehengas,cholis,achkans,asymmetric kalidaars,saris,tunics and jumpsuits ornamented with ancient Peshwai jewellery.

The rich and vibrant assorting of colours like gold,crimson,fuchsia,green,indigo blue and purple created a riot on the ramp.

To give a Maharashtrian flavour to her collection,Shruti added amazing Paithani embroidery along with aari work and resham.

Juhi glided down the ramp in an elegant maroon floor length Anarkali dress. She wore a nath (nose ring) and a typical Maharashtrian necklace.

Another designer Soumitra’s “Bunon’ collection offered a contemporary line but with strong traditional touches.

Soumitra created a luxurious tale of beautiful traditional garments – lean kurtas,slim pants,lehengas,long sleeved cholis,saris,gowns,kalidaar kurta – which were highlights of the show. The colours woven into the ensembles were dramatic black,grey,indigo blue,yellow and maroon.
