New Delhi, Sep 9 (IANS) Finally a true pret-a-porter collection that was very global and stylish. Raghavendra Rathore did not let his audience down as he showcased his line on the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion week ramp.

'My collection has been inspired by India. It's very traditional, yet for a global audience. For the line I have altered the daily wear clothes cleverly and in a stylish way. For instance, instead of a regular dupatta I have teamed kurtis with waist jackets, making them very contemporary,' Rathore told IANS.

The palette of the collection showcased Saturday was dominated by shades of yellow and gold with a few specks of black. Red, shades of blue, metallic gray and pinks were also a part of it.

Kurtis teamed with capris and jackets, short pants and kurtas used as dresses encompassed the women's line. Whereas men's line had kurta's suits, shorts teamed with jackets, trousers with shirts, suits and even lungis.

'I have designed the garments keeping in mind the future when summers will be longer and winters will be for a shorter period of time. Also, these outfits can be washed in washing machines easily and are very comfortable to wear especially in summers.

'The outfits were heavily influenced by the traditional attire of Rajasthan,' he said.

Rajasthani embroidery work embellished the garments and Kohlapuri sandals, sling bags, and hair accessories adorned the collection.
