Big Boss Fame ‘Mandana Karimi’ was the showstopper for Kolkata brand Studio AV by Gaurav and Nitesh at India Runway Week 2016 – Season 7 – DAY 1. She looked stunning in the looks she depicted on the runway. Mandana Karimi was seen wearing dark olive green madhubani lehenga inspired from mithila / madhubani art. The art depicts the day to day life of a woman in the Mithila region, made fully in colorful threads with jeweled embellished blouse along with a hand-loom benarasi dupatta.
‘Dhaage’ the collection theme is inspired by the beautiful journey of threads into a masterpiece. The entire collection is handmade in threads with a little bit of zardosi and dapka work to add some glitter. It consists of two different stories of thread-work embroideries- the soft and subtle Parsi embroidery and the colorful splash of threads in Madhubani embroidery.
Studio AV by Gaurav and Nitesh believes that this collection would help in reviving the dying tradition of Madhubani art and would provide them a good platform and more recognition. This is ‘The First Time’ in the fashion world history that Madhubani – in the form of embroidery, is being used in such a unique and big way by any designer.
The label ‘Studio AV’ speaks volumes about their design sensibility and thought process. The cheerful designs are perfect for the wedding season.
Says the young designer Nitesh Sharaff,
“It is a pleasure being a part of India Runway Week, Mandana Karimi looked perfect in the attire. The collection reveals every ounce of effort and love that has gone into creating something so special. Our designs are a perfect blend of the ethnicity of Indian wear.”
We think Mandana added the perfect amount of elegance to the collection!
