    March 17, 2017

    When the “Queen of Drapes” works her magic with the rich fabrics and weaves from Jharkhand, you know you’re in for a sartorial surprise!

    Shaina N.C.’s Autumn/Winter 2017 collection at the Amazon Fashion Week was a tribute to Jharcraft, and Jharkhand’s textile and handloom legacy. The show marks her third successive Jharkhand-themed curation.

    Shaina has used organic tussar, and added stunning variations to the fabric with a unique play of colours, textures and patterns.The collection saw muted hues of pink, orange, red, and blue – a welcome medley of colour .

    The “Golden Tributes”, her collection also saw ubiquitous gold details – whether it was in the ornate brocade blouses, the intricate Gota Patti borders, or in the detailed gold thread work weaved beautifully on the six yards of sheer magnificence.

    In the collection, the designer’s signature double-draped saris had an interesting fusion of leheriya, checks and stripes on the pallus and the pleats that combined the statement silks with soft, flowy fabrics.
