ARTISANAL CHIKANKARI BY MEIRAAS
KHAYAL (moodboard): “Meghadootam” by poet Kalidas (Gupta Period)
The smorgasbord of Monsoon moods captured on a Kurta. We wanted a Chikankari ensemble to bring alive not only the romance but the moods associated with this much romanced season, that formed the backdrop & a character of Kavi Kalidas’s lyrical masterpiece that is revered globally. “Meghadootam” means “Cloud Messenger”. The clouds carry the many moods of a lover for his beloved.
POSHAAK (about the dress): The Cotton Kurta has first been dyed in cloud like patterns in various colours in Shibori tie & Dye technique to create soft cloud like imagery. This was then sent to Lucknow to our artisans for Minimalist & Classy embroidery. The embroidery is on the neckline & sleeves only, so that both crafts can play their equal parts, & the Kurta looks regal & classy, & not busy. The tunic was then set in a semi stitch design pattern by our team & laces were used to create the delicate romance of myriad feelings. The Kurta has been kept Semi Stitched so that the patron can get it stitched in the size they wish. We will be giving our Mother of Pearl buttons with the Kurta to be sowed on wherever you get the Kurta stitched.
