New Delhi, Aug 31 (IANS) Designer Rajdeep Ranawat is set to launch his spring summer 2017 line in Paris that takes its inspiration from some of the palaces of India.
The designer has explored the state of Rajasthan which is known for its beautiful structures and stunning architecture.
“Scattered all around the state, there are palaces and forts which have a uniqueness of their own, that shout out sagas of old glory and exquisite decor. Some of the richness of these can be witnessed through the remnant of the wall art still beautifully preserved within the interiors of most,” said the designer.
Exploring and capturing the surviving motifs and elegant colour schemes from these, Ranawat presents a collection with a fresh take on the vintage wall art of The Palaces. His collection is an amalgamation of the old design with a twist of the very modern applications.
Also the designs have been split into multiple themes based on the usage of various motifs and colours and named after the six heritage cities of Rajasthan; Kota, Ajmer, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Samode and Jaipur.
One will see rich silk based fabrics, embellished with genuine crystal from Swarovski complimenting the design elegance of The Palace.
The collection is being launched at the fashion fair ‘Who’s Next’ at Porte des Versailles in Paris. The four day fest will start from Friday.
