“There is a reason we don’t see the world in black and white.”

Designers Thasleem Shaikh and Komal Roy’s collection “Colour Therapy” is a line of men’s occasion wear, inspired from its namesake which is a mode of alternative therapy.
Colours have always been known to affect people’s behaviour in different ways. Each colour plays a different role in offsetting a person’s mood. Some have a calming effect, while others are known to stimulate both, mental and physical activity. It may not seem very obvious, but colours play a greater role in our lives than most of us realise. They are also known to possess healing properties and is part of one of the alternative treatments called, Colour Therapy. It uses colour as a medium for healing. It has a set of principles to create harmonious colour and colour combinations for healing.
The designers have created a collection, using colours found around us. The fabrics used to construct the garments were organic cotton, rayon cotton and viscose cotton. Food colour and organic dyes were used to add colour to the garments. Rather than dipping the fabrics in dye, the colours and dye were mixed in a container and poured directly using different shaped spoons. The designers have used pure man made fabrics and organic colours for their collection.
