The Collection focuses on 3 kinds of Body Arts in India. Holi, the festival of colors, Madhubani Paintings, conventional colorful paintings done with the help of finger, twigs and other customary belongings, and Mehndi, decorative designs created on persons body.
The Motive behind this Collection was rather Political in a way to oppose few of the Hindu Religion Tradition which restricted certain type of women to be part of normal day to day life. I used all white fabric and threw colors and prints on them as an objection to the idea of exclusion but rather celebrate and include everyone. i’ve also used tie-knot detail, which in India, is considered very auspicious. To stay true to my Inspiration, this collection has the idea of throwing colors and prints onto the garments rather than being placed before the construction process.
