Indian designer Paromita Banerjee’s collection at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week 2014 was a type of storytelling on Indian handloom.
‘Tana-Bana’ showcased an ethnic-contemporary collection aiming to make people aware of handloom. The styles were borrowed from various cultures and her collection was divided into three sections.
”The first section consisted of textured handwoven cotton weaves done by women weavers from Madhya Pradesh,” Banjeree shared after the show. “The second section is an extension of weaves in silks,” she added. This section included colours such as midnight blues, greys and shades of red. The designer’s third section focused on natural tie dye techniques, with natural dyes such as indigo, harda and kat.
