Designer Paromita Banerjee narrated a story about Indian handloom through her latest
autumn-winter collection at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week.

Titled ‘Tana-Bana’, the line aimed to make people aware of handloom that passes through many hand before finally reaching them.

The line was divided into three sections. “The first section consisted of textured handwoven cotton weaves done by women weavers from Madhya Pradesh,” Paromita said after the show.

The silhouettes were contemporary like jackets, achkans, capes, short dresses.

“The second section is an extension of weaves in silks,” the designer added. The colour palette in this section ranged from midnight blues, greys, bright olives, shades of red to cherry and rust.

The third story was about the use of natural tie and dye techniques. Natural dyes like indigo, harda, kat have been used as part of this range.
