New Delhi: Designer Pooja Shroff unveiled her latest ‘Resist Aur Dye’ collection at the Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2019. The collection was inspired by a line of handmade Indonesian batiks that she attained during her travel to Jakarta.

The Spring Summer 2019 collection is a tribute to the Indonesian Batik fabric designing. Batik is a “resist process” used for making designs on the fabrics. While majority of the collection comprised of prêt pieces in colours black, gold and greys, the collection also had a few couture statement styles. Pooja used this technique on suede, silk, crepe cotton fabrics that dominated the runway.
