Rhythms of Desert, Fall/Winter ’16 collection by Purvi Doshi

The collection, inspired by the Gypsies of the desert that are an integral part of the folk arts of India, boasted of some layered and asymmetrical designs with geometric patterns and floral highlights in vibrant colours. The garments had an eye-capturing spread of Oases-like brilliantly coloured Parsi embroideries incorporated in contemporary designs and silhouettes exclusively made in Khadi.

With the bonhomie in Indian air, celebrating the handloom day, Purvi Doshi’s collection comes as an integral part that presents the resilience of Indian textiles and handlooms in not just the conventional but a contemporary Indian style.

The collection under the aegis of Make-in-India Campaign and sustainability at its core, has been churned out from purely hand woven Indian Khadi.

“India is so vast and so rich in culture and heritage. I always wanted to promote the natural fabrics we have in our country – it is a beautiful way to progress. The amount of hard work that this collection took and the interaction that I had with craftsmen and weavers makes this project special. I have used mirage of Gujarati mirror-work embellish the subtle “red-carpet” green dresses that bolsters my commitment towards working with the arts of the region, of which there are merely a few exponents today,” remarks the designer.
