SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi Geometric Monochrome Collection

This collection from SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi really caught my eye when I saw the bold geometric prints strut down the runway at the recent Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive fashion show.

Whilst the Lakme Fashion Weeks pieces come with a price tag which runs into thousands of pounds, the outfits I'm blogging about today are actually much more affordable, but they still have that wow factor!

Read on to see more...

SVA Anarkalis

If I had to choose one of these three for myself, I'd pick the dress on the left, firstly because of the very practical reason that I'm more comfortable with a round neckline and secondly because there's the tiniest hint of green around the bottom which I would use as the basis for my accessories and make-up!
The dress on the left and in the centre are both priced at £390 and the dress on the right is £330. I know that's not super-cheap, but considering it's a named designer collection, compared to the prices that most shops in the UK charge for their non-designer/copied outfits, I think the pricing of these is very reasonable.

SVA Saris

These so-called "half and half" saris feature a printed half and georgette half:
Pricing-wise, the green-bordered sari at £330, the middle sari at £350 and the sari on the right at is considerably more at £585 - probably because the blouse is a lot more intricate!

SVA Lenghas

I'm really getting into this kind of chic understated lengha look! I think after seeing so many long, flowing, voluminous, quadruple-layered outfits, ensembles like this are such a refreshing change. I think the key to making this look work is in the fit of the top.
I've only managed to get the prices for these as separates: the black top on the left is £165, the white jacket in the middle is £600 and the white patterned top on the right is £340. In terms of the lenghas, I'm not sure about the other two, but the one on the right, paired with a long straight kurta top is £265.

All of the prices above are from Pernias Pop Up Shop as of September 2014 - if you're tempted to buy you can check out details here.

SVA Tunics for under £150

I was amazed today to find these tunics from SVA over on for under £150! The pricing on the website is in dollars, and they come in at $136 dollars for the middle tunic and $109 each for the other two.
I think if I'd seen these on their own, without having admired the rest of the much more expensive collection, I probably wouldn't have paid too much attention to them, however I think it's great to see designers like this having a real variety in terms of price points. I have a $30 credit for this site and I'm seriously tempted to use it on one of these!

SVA Couture Collection

So I've shown you the mid-price range and the budget range so it's only fair that I finish with the "blow the budget" Lakme Fashion Week catwalk collection! Scroll to 7 minutes 40 in this video:

What do you think of this collection? Is it something you would wear?
