Krishna Mehta for WIFW SS 14

 

Krishna Mehta showcased the weaving community of Varanasi or Benaras for her latest collection at WIFW.

 

‘The Magic Woven…by Krishna Mehta’, saw tasteful designs and vibrant colour combinations on garments. Traditional buttis, bellas and phoolpatti, with prints, applique embellishments and embroidery techniques in the design celebrated the weaving legacy of Benaras, one of India’s oldest textile centres.

 

Mehta used printing and dyeing techniques from crafts and traditions across the world, juxtaposing them with vibrant handloom textiles.

 

The collection line-up had elegant garments and accessories, in hand-woven fine cotton and silk Jamdanis, Kinkhabs, Tanchoi, and cutwork fabrics, created by using multiple innovative weaving techniques that complement the materials.
