Purvi Doshi presents ‘Rhythms of the Desert’ inspired by the dunes of Gujarat
In the calm of the desert, the drum beat resonates across the horizon. This colourful embodiment sets the scene for Purvi Doshi’s collection ‘Rhythms of the Desert’. “Sustainability” at its root and “Make in India” in its soul, the collection uses purely hand-woven India-made Khadi fabric. This collection is one more move towards popularizing these forgotten arts that help generate employment at the source that go a long way towards keeping it alive.
Geometric patterns with floral highlights in vibrant colours form the structure of these garments that are also inspired by the gypsies of the desert who are an integral part of the folk art of India. With a mirage of Gujarati mirror-work, and brilliantly coloured Parsi embroideries incorporated in contemporary designs and silhouettes, Purvi hopes to bring you the essence of the desert through her collection, while taking you to the serene setting of the wilderness.
Purvi’s show was choreographed by ace choreographer, Rahul Dev Shetty, whose has been directing and choreographing fashion events both in India and internationally for close to two decades.
