Virasaat – Future Origin – JD Annual Design Awards 2017
Collection Name: Virasaat
Students Names: Himanshi Adlakha and Harpinder Kaur
Virasaat is a collection that primarily aims at reducing divergent systems of production, by sourcing raw materials locally and by providing work to the local artisans. Drawing inspiration from the grace and elegance of Maharani Gayatri Devi, the collection emphasizes on re-living traditions of heirloom sarees and khaadi. The designers have tried to recreate Gayatri Devi’s style and panache and depicted it through the Indo Western collection. Using khaadi and heirloom sarees as the primary fabric, they have used saree borders and pearl laces as surface ornamentation. Khaadi is a hand spun and sustainable fabric which is used to restore the value of Indian art of hand spinning and weaving. The designers have utilized organic hand spun cotton and encouraged local artisans to weave it. The garments are contemporary and have revolutionized traditional Indian fabrics with a modern twist. The collection is Presented by Himanshi Adlakha and Harpinder Kaur from the B.Sc Batch.
