Harleen Kaurs collection Indian Vagabonds Gaatha inspired by a traveller has been designed using variety of Indian textiles to create western outfits with international appeal. An innate and undying love for travel and exploration influences my design aesthetics. I have depicted the spirit of an Indian Vagabond, who travels across India not with a purpose but a sole aim to discover the country, its textiles and crafts. I have designed western outfits using block print from Sanganer, Bandhini from Kutch, Chanderi from Madhya Pradesh, Ikat from Andhra Pradesh and Kota Doria from Rajasthan, said 22-year old Kaur. The event also aims to show that fashion is not just a bling-bling affair; it is about designing clothes which are meaningful and relevant in today’s context. The students have tried to redefine Indian crafts with new developments and contemporary usage. Some of the collections will showcase the brilliance of Ajrakh, beauty of Ikat, splendour of Ahir embroidery and folk-art. Ashna Vermas Up In The Heavens And Down On The Earth is a blend of contemporary design with traditional printing techinque of Ajrakh. I developed contemporary design using Ajrakh. My collection is least flamboyant and utterly edgy. It reflects the essence of Ajrakh which takes inspiration from the heavenly bodies, said 23-year old Verma, a graduating student. There will also be collections designed to address major social causes of global warming, rapid scientific movement towards human cloning and the restrictions imposed by the society on various groups of people. Giving emphasis on sustainability, Harshita Gautam (21) collection, Down to Earth comprises natural fabrics, dyes and ornamentation. I have used cotton, linen and georgette as base fabrics, with corn husk introduced as a new material for embellishment, in beautiful blend of organic shades. The costumes of Ahirs have inspired the silhouette and motifs of my collection, she said.
