The first show of Act 2 was presented by acclaimed designer brand MARIA.B. who showcased a collection of luxury/pret wear titled ‘Ladakh Connection’ at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2014. Inspired by the designer’s search for her own identity and ancestral Kashmiri roots, the collection was based in a range of pure karandi, silk organzas, silk chiffons and digital prints, with a unique colour palette that drew equally from Kashmir’s natural beauty and aristocratic heritage as it did from its ravages of war. The collection reflected a modern take on the rich Kashmiri tribal culture with an emphasis on interpreting vintage Kashmiri craft and silhouettes into a modern, wearable collection.
