THE STORY
Speaking a language of exotic patterns and techniques, the land of timeless textiles that India has been, today it has an amazing wealth of languishing pieces of woven and embellished fabrics, that are in dire need of resurrection. In an attempt to save these old brocades, Benarasi silks and pure zari embroidered borders that she has been collecting and saving from her travels to Varanasi and the interiors of Rajasthan, Nishu Meherish presents a collection of Lehenga sets and seperates for very royal, ethnic wear, giving the textile pieces a new life. From rich brocades, pure zari hand embroideries and heavy, woven silks, the olden days have seen the use of very pure gold and silver for weaving and surface embellishment, compared to the kind used now. These remain as bright today as they were when newly crafted, almost a century ago. Nisha adds another dimension to her love for old textiles with her keen understanding of clever silhouettes. She uses less voluminous, feminine cuts, that lend a contemporary vibe to such ageless clothing. The lehengas are made of kalis, for a minimizing effect, while the blouses have lycra incorporated, and are forgiving on difficult days!
