Indian looms hit the runway

March 20, 2015 19:31 IST

While Kiram Uttam Ghosh was inspired by Khadi, Deepika Govind soaked in the colours and culture of Rajasthan.

Both designers bring traditional Indian textiles back on the ramp in a big, big way.

Kiran Uttam Ghosh takes khadi, a fabric her grandmother used to spin, and turns it into an irresistible fashion statement.

Beautiful cuts magically mixed with a sheer cape and carefully placed detailing… no wonder, Sucheta Sharma looks so happy sashaying down the ramp.

Flaunt your heritage in this sheer red Dhakai worn over gentle gold pants.

A textured pallu over a carefully crafted skirt makes this Kiran Uttam Ghosh a standout.

Want the perfect Indo-Western look? This is it.

Deepika Govind was inspired by Rajasthan’s rich heritage and earthy, natural colours.

Rajasthan’s famous Bandhini style is an interesting addition to this richly-coloured off-shoulder drape.

The organic Kala Cotton forms the basis of her garments.

Tie-and-dye, another traditional art form, gets a modern twist on the red carpet.

Deepika used the attire of the beautiful women of Kutch as her ‘blueprint’ and followed the long, fluid, belted silhouettes of the Khatri tribe.
