Renu Suresh by Srishthi Jaiswal
This asymmetrical contemporary dress, designed by Srishthi Jaiswal on behalf of JD Institute of Fashion Technology, was inspired by the muse Renu, who exemplifies the traits of a modern woman. She is adaptable to change and is ready to move on with the times, yet holding onto her traditional values. Keeping this in mind, the garment features traditional silhouette with a modern style line.
The garment reflects the values associated with the muse – Mrs. Renu, a scholar, who got married at a young age, adapted to this change with flair and balances her life of a proud homemaker, a happy wife and a mother of three delightful children without losing her identity. She is now the queen of her house as well.
The contemporary dress is asymmetrical keeping in mind the body type and age of the client. The overall look of the garment is sophisticated red carpet. The colours used for the garments are; black, as it represents strength, authority, sophistication and elegance; whereas, the colour beige, represents flexibility and reliability, as the inspiration herself.
The fabrics used for the creation of the garment harnesses sustainability and zero wastage, wherein the outfit was created from an old table runner and a 25-year-old sari. Since, both the materials were lying idle they were given a new lease of life and were utilised to the maximum, with minimal wastage. The black, hand embroidered sari was converted into an asymmetrical dress and the beige table runner adds softness and style to the look. In addition to the dress, the long sleeve was made out of net fabric to add exaggeration. A pant was created to be worn over the sari dress, to complete the look. The ensemble is created in two parts which can be worn as separate pieces as well.
To add to the styling aspect of the outfit, Accessories from the brand Begada were used. The handcrafted, innovative and modern designs jewelry added glamour to the entire look. The bejeweled ear cuffs added sparkle whereas the statement ring made innovatively curated by Begada team gave a bold definition to the hands. The accessories were brilliantly crafted.
