The reason why I started Leela was to essentially support my
social welfare initiatives. Today it is for that and for making
clothes that have a meaning, a unique positive energy & a good
vibe to them.
With each collection we aim to translate the positivity from our surroundings in the simplest forms. Inspired by the verdant foliage that surrounds us & embracing the botanical and blooming nature. My spiritual guide taught me that everything around us carries an energy, everything we wear - the prints, the choice of fabrics, silhouettes etc. All this is a reflection of who we are internally and our choice of these, in turn influence our energy on a daily basis. Therefore we are very careful about the choice of fabrics, prints, embroideries & other elements that go into our collection. Introducing Tencel fabric this season, Especially because it is a natural, sustainable, non-synthetic fabric. About 6 to 7 colours of base fabric with block prints with some machine and hand embellishments. The blocks have the shapes of hearts, peacocks, butterflies, owls, trees and leaves, little elements that inspire us! Each one holds a meaning embedded deep inside our hearts.
Summer earthy hues have captured our mood this season, our palette is a mix of lighter pastels like lilac, ivory, sunflower yellow, emerald green, sage green & finishing a few prominent silhouettes in slightly deeper colors like rust & purple.
Heart blocks depicting our most essential element i.e Love. Peacocks for their relation with Krishn Ji. Butterflies for their metamorphosis and freedom. Owls for their connection with Lakshmi Maa and trees and leaves because of my love for the environment. Silhouettes like long capes, maxi dresses, kurtas, waistcoats can be seen across the collection.
