PRATISHTHA by Soniya Chandorkar – INDIFFERENT – Mumbai – JD Annual Design Awards 2017
Paithani, one of the richest arts of the country can boast of. Estimated to be 2000 years old, a Paithani garment was associated with royalty, and treated as priced possession. Despite having a royal beginnings, Paithani lost its mojo somewhere down the line, finding its use only at weddings, only to be kept wrapped at other times in a prison of butter paper. But not anymore. This collection is designed to relive the age old weaving technique and contemporising the different silhouette and styles so that it can be accepted as the future fashion trend is the strong motive behind highlighting this age old Maharashtrian style of saree drape. It is about celebrating the true spirit of Maharashtra, introducing and innovating this in a new avatar. Presenting to you Pratishtha by Soniya Chandorkar.
