Kiran Uttam Ghosh’s woman is a world citizen, who has no qualms embracing her roots, but with an unapologetic contemporary twist. She appreciates the unique personality of her clothes, which is authoritative yet delicate.
In her latest collection,global silhouettes juxtaposed with local handcrafted textiles. Dhakai, Maheshwari, Taant weaves, ikat, Chanderi, Benares brocade, and Fulia effortlessly merged with crepe, georgette, chiffon and perma creased ones.
With a varied colour palette of powder blue, red, aubergine, ivory, shellfish, nude, coral, blackberry, and gold, the collection offered range of pieces, Maheshwari cape layered over a shirt dress, handloom saris, pleated dresses, ponchos, trousers and slouchy tents, some with interesting embellishment details. The look of a plain white shirt worn with a Banaras skirt and an oriental obi sash was outrageously global but with an ethnic twist.
