Borrowing motifs from Japanese, Moroccan and English tableware and tiles, Divya went in for unconventional silhouettes that were inspired by the very geometric tea bags and saucers visible in the painting, by inducing a play of weaves with her style of draping and embroidery.
The ardent textile lover, works towards reviving the dying craft of clamp dyeing with Ajrakh printing using motives that were found in Egyptian mummies, amongst traditional Indian craftsmanship. The collection brings you balance of western inspiration married to Indian technique to make a statement like none other.
The collection boasts hand-woven, natural indigo dyed Indian textiles developed in synergy with master craftsman and are tailored and draped passionately to present “Mary Casatt’s Lady at the Tea Table,” says Divya.
The collection dipped and dyed in history, etched with craftsmanship and a vision make it a much desired possession for today’s modern femme.
This elegantly styled one-shoulder dress had cascading saucer like motifs down the front. With white as the base, the pottery blue designs were delicately splashed on the slim trousers, asymmetric summer dresses, as well as sultry cocktail creations and draped gowns.
The beautiful thread embroidery was the cynosure of all eyes featuring Chinese temples and cherry blossoms while the Ajrakh prints with the unusual clamp dyeing was another interesting part of the collection.
For a perfect English Tea Party appearance Divya Sheth’s diversely inspired line is focused towards generating great international appeal.
