RIMI NAYAK

India Today - - COVER STORY -

De­signer Rimi Nayak has quite lit­er­ally taken to the paint­brush for her new col­lec­tion Colour Me Your Kind. The colours in a rain­bow are rep­re­sented with tex­tur­ing and fab­ric ma­nip­u­la­tion to mir­ror the ef­fect of paint­ing tech­niques such as mar­bling and colour­play. Vivid azure blues, muted reds and chrome yel­lows make a colour story that is bright and yet pleas­ant enough for the sum­mer. The sil­hou­ette is re­laxed, with Nayak’s trade­mark draped and pleated dresses.

The jux­ta­po­si­tion of the clothes in a gallery space is de­lib­er­ate. Nayak’s col­lec­tion re­volves around the story of a woman who heals her emo­tional wounds by pour­ing out her feelings in the form of colours on a can­vas, blur­ring the lines be­tween fash­ion and art.
