1 Min. Read
Jayanti Reddy’s new AW’19 collection ‘Benares & Beyond’ is a celebration of the modern bride who is rooted in her traditions yet has an evolved and relevant mindset.
Varanasi. Kashi. Benares. A city of unwavering faith and the heart of Hinduism that lends its name to the warp and weft. Warp and weft are two sets of yarn threads that run horizontally on the loom while weaving the yarn. Warp refers to the threads that are strung vertically, like fast paced modern people while Weft is like the traditions and culture. Together they create an ensemble worth remembering.
Benares – much like the Indian bride – refuses to be defined. It is both old and new, traditional and challenging, ancient yet relevant.
The collection is inspired by this glorious, complex city celebrating the modern Indian bride with its weaves. The collection celebrates every colour, from beige to navy blue, to peaches, reds, and mint greens. The collection features Anarkalis , drapes, peplum tops, Lehengas and sarees giving the collection a wholistic wearability.
