It is not unusual for designers to adopt a theme in their fashion repertoire but it is rare that one shows how basic principles transgress into various other disciplines.
Pallavi Jaipur has adopted 'design' as one such principle and she attempts to draw parallels between the architecture of Jaipur and her winter collection.
She has embraced on the fundamental tenet of design which is form and function. Form comes from the city of Jaipur in terms of shapes, cuts, proportions, visuals, materials etc. Function is driven by need which dominates fashion particularly contemporary fashion.
For example geometric proportion like grid layout of the city and visuals of Jantar Mantar is masterfully reflected in her collection with the right dose of colour and styling. In other she pays homage to the mirror work that so wonderfully adorns Shish Mahal and cleverly brings it out on her silhouttes.
Indeed very simple but revealing about her city, her art and her passion.

"Reason is powerless in the expression of love" - Rummi
This collection is because of the love I feel towards the people of Leh, towards the land that is a miracle even in the eyes of the creator. And from this love I draw inspiration for this year's Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week A/W 11-12 collection.
This collection is therefore rooted in the undisturbed land that is still untouched by civilization. Time looses all significance in a place so tranquil. The primitive crafts come alive against the barren solid landscapes and the only colour apart from grey mountains that you see is that of turquoise water reflecting the clear sky. The colour pallet for the collection is from the natural elements of the cold desert - sand nude, ice green, turquoise water and coral red.
The ancient crafts of Ladakh are intricately integrated with the modern fabrics and futuristic silhouettes. Raw firoza, coral and saffaire stones are embedded into each garment to enrich the beauty of the collection.
At the core of every collection by SAAJ is a strong feminine woman. The collection is for a glamorous, confident, edgy, stylish young girl who believes in herself.
The "new world collection" is of feminine style with understated elegance and a new twist to "vintage". There is creative inventiveness through a collage of prints overdyied treated exposed undergoing shock treatment's for a striking kaleidoscopic effect.
In this collection we find the necessity to preserve and protect be complimentary and exclusive to bring forth a characteristic, which has an ethnic nomadism with an authentic twist.
'Malgudi Days ' -not only a compilation of short stories but a palette of emotions and human relationships .It invokes a feeling of nostalgia, where u get into a space of self realization and soul search. One automatically finds himself bonding with any of the characters and moves with the flow. Sheer magic of Malgudi Days which Joy Mitra has tried to translate in his latest collection.
The silhouettes are a fusion of Indian sarees , anarkalis and long jackets . Colors used mostly are blacks and browns with some indigos and maroons . Occasional sap greens play a hide and seek in the collection. Lot of textures, hand embroidery and prints have been used to create the look. Fabrics start from wool to corduroys to silk to ggts to cottons, adding to the magic and grandeur of the collection.
