Panaji: The Mapxencar sisters will present their collection inspired from their visit to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar`s Ashram at Bangalore during the forthcoming Lakme Fashion Week 2013 on March 23 in Mumbai.

Riddhi and Siddhi Mapxencar own a fashion label mapxencaRS.

"The idea for this collection came from our visit to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar`s Ashram at Bangalore," Riddhi Mapxencar said in Mumbai.

The Mapxencar duo has named their collection as "Son Shringar."

"We present the collection of Son Shringar - where anchored by gold, every colour in life comes alive. The collection is meant to inspire you to go within and be pure in soul like gold and yet enhance the life around you," she said.

"Just as gold cannot be affected by any acid, and is deemed the purest metal, which even when it goes through fire, gets only more purified, so also the soul as it goes through the `tapa` of sadhana and dhyana (yoga & meditation) becomes more pure," Siddhi Mapxencar said explaining the concept.

The sister duo will for the first time this season experiment with Indo-western silhouettes for the show.

"The colour palette will have shades of creams, teal blue, pink and orange with hints of gold," Siddhi added.

The duo had received a good response during the India Resort Fashion Week, held in Goa in December last year.
