Raasleela was founded in 2015 by Sonali R. Agarwal, an alumni of Pearl Academy of Fashion, New Delhi.

From the designer-

” Raasleela was founded out of my love for Indian fabrics and my innate need to quirk it up. It was founded for my need to wear modern clothing in breathable fabrics and the huge lapse in Indian market of making such product. It was also founded to take the traditional Indian crafts and put it on the map.

I would love for all the women to get up, take notice of our rich heritage and wear it proudly”

 

 Lets get up close and personal as the designer talks about the Lebel

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_15a

# How did it all started? And about the label?  

** Raasleela, is a metaphor for playful and happy clothing. It was started for the modern woman, who is fun, experimental and confident. For the woman, who is rooted in her personal values and liberal in her thoughts.

The label at its soul, if full of love for all things Desi . We try to do our part in promoting traditional crafts of India and work directly with printers and weavers, so they get fair wages. You will always find an Indian craft highlighting in all our clothing.
Our design philosophy revolves around the idea of minimalism, clean cuts and relaxed silhouettes, in pure fabrics.
We believe in all things handmade and handcrafted. We do limited pieces as they are not produced by machines, in bulk.

** We do not follow any trends- we make classic clothes with modern twist in quality fabric- which will last a few years, sustainable in both quality and trends. However we do follow color forecasts.

# What is your take on changing trends and globalization of Indian Fashion.

** Although we do not believe in changing trends, we do keep an eye out for any new and exciting designs happening. Fashion is an industry where you have to keep reinventing yourself and watching our contemporaries and seniors is a fantastic way to learn and appreciate the new. 

Its fantastic to see so many Indian designers taking global fashion scene by storm- and even better to see how they retain our beautiful culture and its complexities in their designs.

** A cotton maxi or my current favorite- shirt dresses

# Dressing tips for this summer-

** Invest in fine quality cotton pieces, they will make summers much easier. Its a myth that cotton should be cheap and shiny looking fabrics are acceptable if expensive. Wear fun, loose kurtas and dresses, team them up with scarves to jazz up the outfit and wear them up with kohlapuris and a smile

** INDIA RUNAWAY WEEK ** Weavers at Centre stage of current season of India Runway Week

It would seem that no matter how big the India Runway Week gets, there you will always find fresh new names. Of course, the old designers continue every season. This is the 8th season of India Runway Week which is starting from 28th of April.

IRW 2

The weavers of India are its biggest assets. Indian hand woven fabrics have been known since time immemorial. India was famous even in ancient times as an exporter of textiles to most parts of the civilized world but throughout history and currently too there are evidences that show that weavers have always been a victim of a staunch hierarchical system. Being at the bottom of the system they fall prey to the extreme forms of exploitation.

There are organizations that are identified as a promising means of raising voice for them and generating livelihood for hundreds of rural artisans. They have made a significant contribution to the lives of the women artisans working with it, which has helped improve their economic as well as social status.

ikreate IRW

They strive to bring the traditions of India to customers all around the world with its unique creations and products. It not only helps its artisans become wage earners, but also spreads awareness about the traditional crafts of the region, thus helping preserve a rich part of India’s national cultural heritage. Indian Federation for fashion Development have joined hand with four of these organizations i.e Rangsutra, SoCHE, Banka Silk and Gestures by Kriti who will present the work of artisans at current season of India Runway Week Summer 2017 ramp which is starting from 28th of April to 30th of April 2017

“The purpose of this show is to raise the current conditions of the weavers and to propose the importance of such organizations and social security to the custodians of this ageless art.” Said by Fashion director, Kiran Kheva, India Runway Week

Rangsutra is a craft company of thousand artisans from remote regions of India – the desert regions of Rajasthan and plains of Eastern Uttar Pradesh whereas SoCHE is reviving this languishing and less popular hand embroidery practiced by women around the border areas of Barmer. Banka Silk on other hand is imparting the required skills to the weaver’s community of Banka, connecting them with the markets and helps create an Eco-system wherein the weaver’s community can become self-sustainable. And lastly Gestures by Kriti is a livelihood support and outreach initiative that began in 1999, to promote ethical, sustainable and socially conscious thinking & buying of ‘community made’ products.

My First Splurge of 2017. H&M

Hey! Guys,

2017 and here I’m giving my hobby little wings and my voice a platform.

Delhi and its shopping experience is a never ending journey. Right from high fashion clothing to flee markets and budget shopping. You name it you get it. As the fashion capital of India, I can announce myself as a proud shopaholic 😛

Today I’m here to share my H&M shopping experience and my favourite piece among few. 

A Cozy Winter Dress

Fell in love with the black dress. A simple waist belt to go with it gives an extra chicness. Black can never go out of fashion and always gives you that extra edge. Perfect for a winter day look. Go out with your girlfriends or for a simple weekend brunch. This dress will do it all.


Winters and Black goes hand in hand. I can never get tired of wearing different forms of black outfits. This Black off Shoulder top does so much to complete my look. Its simple and elegant. Pair it with your favourite denim or a skirt. Put on your winter boots or a pair of converse and you are good to go.

Lemme take a Selfie :*
