There was an international shibori conference that happened in Hong Kong in December 2011. For this confrence, Insiyah Shahpurwalla and I created a garment for the new generation competition. For this, we created a royal blue jacket inspired by a peacock keeping in mind the essence of being purely Indian. This garment portrays the grace, vibrance and elegance inherent in human beings and is depicted through the form of a bird that embodies the wearer. We used colours like turquoise blue, emerald green, ananda blue, magenta and violet which essentially create the colour palette associated with the majestic peacock.
This garment consisted of a jacket on the upper body and a trail comprising of 300 hand stitched shibori feathers that reached the floor.
