Bollywood actress Aditi Rao Hydari, who walked the ramp for designer Payal Singhal Monday at the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer-Resort 2013, said the collection took her down memory lane.

"I am so happy that I walked for Payal wearing her clothes. Her clothes took me back to my childhood days," she told the media.

"I have been lucky to have been brought up where heritage is so important... this was like a walk down memory lane," she added.

The actress looked fabulous in a red sharara-legenga and simple red blouse.

The actress of films like "London Paris New York" and "Murder 3", found the clothes wearable.

"We feel that Indian clothes are high maintenance. But these clothes are so wearable," said.

Payal said seh deliberately kept Aditi's blouse simple as "she (Aditi) is so beautiful. Also, the main show of a bride should be her jewellery."

Titled Taj, Payal's collection was "inspired by Islamic architecture".

"This is the reason why you saw Taj Motifs on many of the garments," she added.

While the textiles were very Indian, the silhouettes were western.

"Everyone talks about swades, but there was also rebellion against the Swadesi Movement by women who wanted to wear western outfits. The silhouettes represent that," she said.

The line showcased spectacular silken Sufi falda pants with structured cholis, buttery mul saris with free flowing kurtas, short Anarkali kurtas with voluminous salwars and asymmetric tunic blouses with traditional silk saris in katarva cottons, Benarasi and mul silks.

The detailing on the clothes was done with silk, silver, and gold thread as well as filigree or jaali work in trellis patterns.
