Known for fusing western wear with traditional hand-crafted textiles, designer Vaishali Shadangule’s Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer ’16 collection YAJNA will see an innovative play of thread where it merges itself to give birth to a new textile.

“YAJNA, is the transformation of one form of energy into another. The world we exist in is said to be the YAJNA of the ubiquitous one, a portion of god turned inside out. Thus, it is the sacrifice of its oneness that allows for the appearance of multiplicity we play in and enjoy,” says Vaishali who made it to the fashion industry after struggling for odd 16 years to chase her dreams.

“The primary motive of this collection goes back to my love for textiles. When I came across the idea of YAJNA, I could easily relate it with the textile where a thread merges itself to give birth to a textile”, shares 37-year-old designer who will be showcasing on the first day of AIFW SS’16.

Colours of the collection will weave a story out of royal blue, deep black, pale white, milk white and smoke grey. “We’ve explored various fabrics from Maheshwar (M.P), and as the collection is majorly concentrated on merging the threads, one will see Khadi gently transforming into asymmetric drapes with free flowing ends,” says the designer.

Talking about the garments and flow, Vaishali says, “The garments will have different layers that travel through unfinished underneath layer to the clean and finished outer layer, which symbolises the stages of consciousness. The natural flow of the fabric smoothly settles at different portions of the garment, which will allow the viewers to understand and perceive it with their own interpretation.”

Talking about the journey from a concept to a full-fledged collection of 22 garments, the designer says, “As I started working on the collection the idea of the woven universe naturally started seeping in and resulted in form of final collection that has a global appeal which will connect with an international viewer to Indian fashion.”

Vaisahli who’s as dedicated to her craft as to her business says that the change of title sponsor of the India Fashion Week can never change the impact it makes to the fashion economy. “AIFW being the biggest Indian fashion event, provides a great platform to present your work to international and domestic buyers, which ultimately helps in expanding the area of business. Moreover, one also gets an opportunity to see contemporary work of veterans as well as upcoming designers,” says the talented designer.

Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer ’16 will be organised from October 7-11 at NSIC Grounds, Okhla, New Delhi
