Wear­able Art

India Today - - SIMPLY DELHI -


Known for his glam­orous cre­ations, de­signer Ra­jdeep Ranawat has over the years con­stantly strived to ex­per­i­ment with not just dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als, cuts and sil­hou­ettes but also themes. Launched in Oc­to­ber 2004, his la­bel draws in­spi­ra­tion from na­ture and spe­cialises in lux­ury goods like haute cou­ture, pret-a-porter, re­sortwear, dif­fu­sion, among oth­ers, for both men and women. Cre­at­ing ap­parel that he de­scribes as “art to wear”, the la­bel strives to in­cor­po­rate el­e­gance, class, and orig­i­nal­ity to prac­ti­cal de­signs. ‘We try out best to utilise In­dian ar­ti­san skills and tech­niques to pro­duce fine em­broi­dered, se­quinned, beaded mo­tifs and de­signs. Fur­ther, orig­i­nal dig­i­tal and block prints in generic western sil­hou­ettes cre­ate a novel blend,’ says Ranawat.

His col­lec­tions have al­ways been di­verse—from sen­su­ous re­sort wear to fine wed­ding wear and Rann of Kutch-in­spired sleek indo-western out­fits. His trade­mark how­ever, is flowy sil­hou­ettes that look good on all types of fig­ures, pure fab­rics, dy­namic prints and beau­ti­ful em­bel­lish­ments that make a daz­zling state­ment.

This sea­son, the de­signer is all set to launch a spe­cial Diwali line with the lat­est Svar­ga­loka Bali-in­spired col­lec­tion of tu­nics and pal­lazo sets. In­spired by the an­cient tem­ples in Bali and Ubud re­gions of In­done­sia, this col­lec­tion is the per­fect start to the fes­tive sea­son. The highlights of this line are prints in hues of navy, or­ange, black, char­coal, grey and ivory. So head to Ogaan to shop for his beau­ti­ful gar­ments this fes­tive sea­son.
