    With an interplay of traditional motifs on Indian fabrics, Myoho launches its AWa��15 line in the city

    Taking inspiration from theA�Buddhist mantraA�Nam Myoho Renge KyoA�thatA�symbolises the mystic forces ofA�nature,A�theA�eight-year-old brand Myoho is introducing their new Autumn Winter 2015 line in the city thisA�weekend.A�Featuring traditional Gujarat ajrak motifs, and floral patterns, the colours showcased are black, natural indigo, burgundy and rust with bits of grey.
    Helmed by the Mumbai-based designer duo Kiran Jaisinghani and Meghna Agarwal, the brand has regularly showing in the city in the past five years.A�Known for an inclination towards Indian handlooms, their latest collection A�is called The Earth Song, which isA�a strikingA�mA�lange of monochrome Ajraks paired with bold geometric floral appliquA�s. a�?MeghnaA�and IA�are extremely textile driven and there is a never-ending supply of inspiration that we find in handloom textiles and vegetable dyes when we start developing the prints for any collection,a�? says the 35-year-oldA�Jaisinghani.
    Block-printed and resist-dyed, using natural indigo and madder dyes, on offer areA�a variety of silks like tussar, gajji and malangiri, along with flat chiffon. a�?We always design by instinct and our colour palette is also a resultA�of what we individually are drawn towards that time of the year. Right now, we find these colours ever so inviting, complementing the silhouettes for the line like sharp monochrome blockingA�asymmetricA�tops, easy floor length draped dresses and lots of bias cut dresses,a�? informs the designer.
    `10,000 onwards. Details: 28291443
