Basalt: A Tribute to Kailash Temple
Basalt was designed by Manoj S and Priya Rauniyar, students of BSc. in Fashion and Apparel Design at JD School of Design powered by JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bengaluru for JD Design Awards 2023. The collection paid tribute to the Kailash Temple.
The Kailash Temple is a standalone, multi-storeyed temple complex that is known to resemble the abode of Lord Shiva. Basalt is a megalith collection that is carved from a rock cliff face. It is regarded as one of the most remarkable cave temples in the world due to its size, architecture, and sculptural treatment. According to legend, Shiva was erected on Mount Kailash by the Rashtrakuta Dynasty. India’s architectural structures prominently reflect its history, culture, legacy, and religion. One such magnificent structure is the Kailash Temple, which may be found in the well-known Ellora Caves of Aurangabad, Maharashtra. We are creating the quilting technique for the clothing in order to incorporate the philosophy of touch into the garments. The collection explores the Kailash Temple, which is believed by us is the Eighth wonder of the world due to its century-old construction and fascinating past. The fact that the entire temple is carved out of a single rock and is situated on an inclining mountain demonstrates the unsolved nature of the temple’s construction mystery. So, in order to demonstrate that there is still untapped power in knowing one’s heritage, the young fashion designers set out to display their collection by incorporating designs from the temple into the clothing.
The collection won Experimental Collection Award.
Philosophy of Time, was designed by Tanya Gupta, student of Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design 2020 from JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bengaluru for JD Design Awards. The autumn-winter couture collection was aimed to represent time from a conceptual perspective.
Time is a force that shapes our lives in ways – both subtle and profound. It flows like a river, its currents carrying us along, while its structure provides a framework of our existence. Time is both historical and futuristic, a tapestry woven from the threads of our past and the hopes of our future. It is a valuable commodity, one that we must spend wisely, for once it is gone, it can never be regained. Yet, despite its elusiveness, time is also a tangible thing, something we can see and touch.
Philosophy of Time is represented through the use of silhouettes and embellishments, the young fashion designers captured the essence of time, expressing its philosophical aspects in a way that is both beautiful and profound. Time is that one word that combines the past, present, and future, a force that shapes our lives and reminds us to cherish every moment. Through their collection the designers have showcased the mysterious force of time that governs our lives, and celebrates the beauty and wonder of its passing.
The collection was the recipient of the Immaculate Collection Award.
