When a textile has been utilised by various fashion houses for decades, it comes as quite a challenge to revitalise its appearance and yet retain it’s connect to its origin. Combining it with modern and edgy silhouettes — through necessity or curiosity — can recapture its allure.
After numerous trips to Odisha and talks with skilled craftsmen and tribes, this collection was developed as a modern ode to this ingenious craft and its mother state.
The textiles were handwoven in the villages of Bargarh and Nuopatna of Odisha with 100% cotton yarns. The colours were indigo, white and black - a signature of the label. The Tri-nose ring, multiple non pins and an ingenious hibiscus was inspired by the Mali Tribes from Maliguda village and Dongria from Kondh.

The collection is based on an imaginative character who is envisioned as the bad-ass successor of Radha from the miniature Pichwais and Frida from Mexican art history. It is the story of women dressed in elegance who wear their
attitude right, interplaying the bad-ass rebel and sublime goddess at the same time.

The collection is inspired by the celebration called by the Pichwais of the Nathdwara. Krishna, the God of Love is revered in iconic paintings known as “pichwais”, which assume that the “swarupa” or image of the deity represent a divine living being.
The Alternate State - In Search of The Otherness
Wearable art by Divya Sheth
“Let’s take a dive into the unknown, break glass ceilings and begin new beginnings; Jump into the depths to be one with one.”
The irregularity of handmade artisanal clothing is a metaphor for the playful yet elegant spirit, where geometry, history, nature and fantasy intersect and overlap, but which only truly reveal themselves to the observer rather than just the onlooker. The event was an initiative to allow the individual to discover the beauty of lost Indian craftsmanship and hence begin their journey to The Otherness: a state of being one with art and individuality.
