From flowing cotton anarkali suits, elegant silk patialas, smart casuals, trendy saris to spongy towels, Prakriti - a fashion show of organic fabrics following the launch of Indian Standards for Organic Textiles (ISOT) in the Capital on Monday, was a gorgeous affair.

The show that was hosted by the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority of India (APEDA), and unveiled by the union minister of commerce, industry and textiles Anand Sharma, saw models strutting down the ramp in creative attire made of environment-friendly fabrics, reinforcing the fact that organic can be chic too. The 'eco-fashion' show saw a host of wearable and stylish outfits created by designers and even rural artisans from across the country, including states such as Jharkhand and Maharashtra.

The organic towels, bath robes, slippers and head caps presented by Morarka Foods brought fun and freshness to the show, transporting one to relaxed fun-filled beach holidays.

The creations in Mother Nature sequence by designer Vikram were inspired by the five elements of nature. The collection included smart tunics and boots made of eco-friendly materials.

The Tvach-Back to the Skin Collection saw flowy anarkalis with embroidered sleeves in nude and neutral shades. Created by Yuti Textiles, the range was stylish and classy.

The nine yards of wonder, created by rural artisans of Jharkhand and promoted by Jharcraft, was a stunner. The silk and cotton saris were elegant as well as trendy.
