The Pacha collection is inspired from the artform kathakali. It is a story play genre of art, but one distinguished by the elaborately colorful make-up, costumes and face masks that the traditionally male and female artist's wear. The costumes are aesthetically pleasing and have an avant garde feel to it. Of all classical Indian dances, Kathakali has the most elaborate costuming consisting of head dresses, face masks and vividly painted faces. However, the costumes are very fashion forward and timeless, as a fashion designer it has always intrigued me. So here I'm presenting my collection Pacha – a modern take on the artform kathakali.
