New Delhi, Feb 25 (IANS) Ace designer Madhu Jain, who completes 29 years in the world of fashion, hosted an evening to introduced her spring-summer collection that revolves around the world of Ikat from different parts of the country as well as inspired from around the globe at "Ogaan".
Union Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi inaugurated the collection.
Known as the craft revivalist and textile conservationist, Jain played the perfect host while showcasing her indigenous forms of textile weaving and designs in the form of her brand-new Uzbek-inspired Ikats, alongside a retrospective of her signature Andhra Pradesh and Odisha Ikat styles into which she has infused the Buddhist Mandala design inputs from the textile traditions of Thailand.
There were many well-know faces from the capital who came to be the part of the event including Maneka Gandhi who was spotted going through every outfit very closely
In her nearly three decade long career, Jain has experimented extensively with textiles and continues to innovate to craft unique blends that are characteristically true to her natural fibres label. This spring, she takes the craft to a new level, by introducing the motifs and weaves of Ikat from Uzbekistan into her design repertoire.
"My fresh collection showcases a confluence of two cultures - Indian and Uzbek - that share so much in common. Seeing the unifying threads in the traditional weaves of two different regions is something that enthuses and challenges me," Jain had earlier told IANS.
