High on Creativity
Ekru by Ekta and Ruchira, Geisha Designs by Paras and Shalini, Jaya Rathore, Monapali, Satya Paul and Reynu Taandon are the six installation designers at the couture week.
“We’ve garments with elements of an installation. This time it is a tribute to fairytale romances,” says Paras Bairoliya of Geisha Designs. Through the set, he will try to bring alive the vintage era using wrought iron and bricks walls with mirrors. “After the installation, making a collection seems like an easier job,” adds Bairoliya.
Jaya Rathore is using the platform to experiment. She says, “I am creating a 3-D effect through play of shades on a lehenga that uses bouquets of roses and paisley.”
Using Indian embellishments in a futuristic way is Reynu Taandon’s installation. She says, “My installation uses elements of my garments displayed on the mannequin. It has types of nets and textured papers, thread reels and buttons.”
Designer Sumant Jayakrishnan has created six installation using Swarovski elements. Of the six designs for decking up the venue, one is a 20-feet-high chandelier. “It looks quite simple. There are two other chandelier designs. At the entrance, there is a 40-feet-long and 10-feet-high installation in the shape of a cross. There are about two lakh crystals that have been used for creating all six. Each installation is unique and will create a luxe ambience,” says Jayakrishnan.
