Are you ready for one more fashion extravaganza. Much had been said and written about the wonderful art of ’Kalamkari’ – the pride of Andhra :-). A hint from Divya of Soundhornplease inspired me to do this post today. The Fashion week Winter/ Festive 2011 is in full swing and let us look at some all time Kalamkari classics in the fashion world.
Nishka Lulla an young designer took to them in the ongoing fashion week in her ready to wear dresses for the more modern crowd. Though not my style, if the art can reach larger audience and thereby encourage the artisans to keep this excellent art form alive, the effort is appreciated.
My all time favorite Asmita Marwah already in 2008 made the whole fashion world go gaga over her classical, yet modern timeless creations
Ritika Mittal is a god sent angel to handlooms and handmade art forms. Look at these creations and gorgeous pallus from her .
I love these sarees too. Available at sakhifashions.com
Kalamkari sarees had been a rage for the past few years especially in Andhra and I pride this one in my wardrobe where stories have been weaved into the border. It's a pity the photographs did not capture 1/100th of its elegance. Click on the pictures to see them better :-).
Have a nice weekend.
