For her collection, Anavila Misra took inspiration from the tribal women of the Sa Pa region in Vietnam.

Designer Anavila Misra, who will be closing Day 3 of the upcoming Lakme Fashion Week will showcase her latest collection inspired by Vietnamese tribal women.

According to a press release, the designer says, “My constant travel to Vietnam and more so to the Sa Pa region has left a lasting impression on me. It has not only creatively inspired me, but the life and lifestyle of the very industrious Sa Pa women have found its way into my routine.”

“Taking inspiration from how every day, naturally available materials are converted into beautiful products and how creating and consuming in a sustainable and responsible manner is a natural way of life for these women, we present our SS’19 collection inspired by the culturally rich and diverse Sa Pa tribes,” adds Misra.
