Deepika Govind who is and likes to be known as a designer working with and for textiles will come up with a line called Pop Patola to be displayed at the LFW Fashion Week which begins next week in Mumbai. Patola is a complex and intriguing textile; based on Ikat weaving–single Ikat or double. Double ikat is done only in some weaver’s clusters in Orissa and Andhra Pradesh and of course for the way the famed and slipping away Patola sari of Patan. Deepika has posted a Youtube video DG Pop Patola Ver Final showing some behind the scenes work into her collection. Till we see the collection,all I can say is I am intrigued and my question is Why make Patola Pop? Perhaps Deepika’s LFW show will answer the question.
