Marquee - 2015
Marquee - balle balle
The collection is inspired by the famous Bhangra dance of Punjab. The dance celebrates the small happiness of life and inspires us to live in the moment. It is essentially a harvest festival dance & so, our designers have used harvest colors of Green & Yellow in their collection of Western Casual garments. The collection created by our students features traditional woolen crochet & embroidery on denim & georgette, in this chic collection.
Marquee - rendering of raga
The marvellous collection is inspired by the two Indian musical instruments that are representative of Indian music across the globe...the sitar & the tabla. Our students have designed these works of art by being inspired by these instruments that reflected the culture of the times in that they showed both Indian and Persian characteristics. It is a collection of Western casual wear in white, cream & blue in fabrics like cotton linens & hosiery.
Marquee - lavanya
Lavani, the famous Maharashtrian folk dance now provides grist for the creative mill for our students. Lavni is actually derived from the word “Lavnya'' which means beauty . Maharashtra was once a battle-torn state, and Lavani dance served as a mode of entertainment and as a morale booster to the tired soldiers during the 18th and 19th centuries. In this collection of western casual wear, our designers have also drawn their inspiration from elements like ghungrus which is commonly worn by the lavani dancers & have used coins & golden lace embellishments on satin georgette & silk. Presenting - Lavanya.
Marquee - black magic
Our young designers are inspired by two very popular dance forms...the Garba & the Bhangra as they created a collection called Black Magic.
The magic of black never fails to make a woman look beautiful. Like a frame to a painting, black always ensures that the person is the first thing you see. The students have embellished the garments with digitally printed navratri motifs and traditional kutchi embroideries, with elements taken from the props used in the dances for added impact.
Check out this collection of Western casual silhouettes .

Their simplistic yet highly expressive Warli paintings are dominated by three geometric shapes...the triangle, the circle, and the square & depict the folklife…socio-religious customs, imaginations, and beliefs of the Warli tribe.
