Rajesh Pratap Singh's Modern Take on Bhutanese National Dress
04 th Jul 2013

Accompanying Ritu Kumar, Rajesh Pratap Singh attended the inauguration of the Royal Textile Academy in Thimpu, Bhutan in late June. Whilst Kumar attracted attention for her traditional take on the Kira, Bhutan's national dress consisting of a blouse, skirt and quilted jacket, Singh elected to modernise the garb. The Bhutanese royal family was in attendance at the event, and expressed their appreciation of the designers' efforts to use and publicise Bhutanese cloth and styles. Singh also took inspiration from local prayer flags and hand-loomed weaves.
