Inspired by Antalya, the beautiful town on the Turkish Riviera, designer Shruti Sancheti’s collection of the same name had all the Sufi influences, colours, designs and cuts of that era on Day-4 of the India Resort Fashion Week 2012.

Sprays of paisley prints, Byzantine architectural embroidery and Greek/Roman drapes were the mainstay of the ensembles. Colours reflected the beauty of the region as blue in shades of azure or deep tones, corals, bright reds and royal purples formed the background for the very stylish creations. Detailing came in the form of cut-work, printing techniques and embroidery inspired by carpets and sequin designs from the Turkish region.
