Spring Summer 2013
Gates of Dawn

A bohemian collection drawing from the costumes of the Kutch desert. Nomadic in spirit, urban in appeal. Light weight fabrics used to create layer and volume. Extensive use of minute geometric embroidery, cross stitch and hand detailing.

Modern village silhouettes. Sructured yokes, layered chevrons and geometric formations. Gathered skirts are teamed with corset tops derived from the choli, and uppers that are versions of the kedia. Looks that are a fusion between the choli and the maxi dress.

Colour blocked sarees with cross stitch detailing, sheer net transparencies with bangle sleeves and tonal embroidery detailing.

Gypsy gilets with deep angarkha scooped necklines and wide leg ghagra pants. Fabrics used are light weight tussars and mongas, chanderis, cotton silks, net and cotton voiles.

A rustic folk collection with nomadic influences in a burst of colour from beiges to burnt orange, purples and muted pinks to indigo.

Accessories for the show comprise handmade footwear in leather with myriad antique gold metal chains. These draw inspiration from the village ornaments that form the everyday rural wardrobe.

Village ornaments contemporized into toe-ring ankle slippers with clusters of antique chains. Slave bands in cutwork leather. Jalli bangles with colour blocking and contrast leather uppers. An explosion of digital patterns.
