This is the accessory section of our Meet & Greet Designers from Lakme Fashion Week Spring Summer 2011. Meet Hyderabad based accessory designer Suhani Pittie. A lot has been said about her exceptional artistic endeavors. Suhani is best known for creating fabulous pieces of jewelry from hardware materials such as steel, copper, brass, plastic and plated copper. Her collection for LFW SS 2011 “Urban Folk” is an impersonation of transitional landscapes of her hometown on jewelry. The styling is strong, funky and art nouveau. Suhani often refers her jewelry as “wearable art”.
Inspiration for this collection – This collection is mostly a reflection of what’s going on in Hyderabad at the moment, in terms of the city undergoing a massive makeover where newness and globalization is taking place at all corners of the city.
Accessory Trends for 2011 –Accessories should have a bit of everything in them be it bold color, a strong personality, a sense of humor or a vintage look – one should have fun with their jewelry and accessories, then the whole ensemble becomes interesting.
Favorite Designers – I love the work of Stella McCartney.
Future Plans – Our agenda for this year is to ramp up our already highly successful e-commerce business.
