DESIGNER : RUCHIKA KABRA
Brief description/inspiration/background story about the collection: Silk in its raw form is called ECRU; ecru combine with gold and silver threads creates a magical fabric. This textile art as applied to fashion occupies the major portion of my work. The design of silk clothing has required great aesthetic vision and sensitivity of perception. This is because the pattern, cut and volume of a silk garment- whether worn by a man or woman- will condition the way its colors shimmer and shift in response to light and movement. The collection is all about silk used in its natural form. To add to the royal touch, are the crystals, which coordinate well with the sheen of silk.
Presenting a collection of exclusive garments; “The Royal Ecru”, to be put on by a royal, as she cements a fashion moment.
Bio of the designer: After completing my Bachelors degree in textile design from India, I worked in the field of Embroideries, Hand block printing, hand-loom weaving and specialized custom women’s wear. While working on custom orders I realized that I need training in Fashion Design. I opted for the best and shifted to New York to study at Parsons School of Design. I have always been inspired by the cultural aspect of any country. I seek for perfection in all my work and continue to learn and explore.
