The myriad designs used in Mehendi patterns by ladies since time immemorial has been inspired from art in one way or the other. And I being a designer have always been inspired by art. My collections have always drawn ideas from and have been a tribute to the artisans. The collection “Shades” has been an attempt to bring the mehendi artists into the fashion arena who for one reason or the other have always been confined to Indian weddings. Shades has been crafted in silhouettes of evening wears glorified with patterns of mehendi to blend the Indian and western art-forms in the perfect manner.
