FLOWER CHILD – CURATOR – JDADA2019
“A modern woman is not necessarily someone who just buys expensive stuff; a modern woman is someone who buys intelligently.”

Designer Annapurna Goswami’s collection “Flower Child” is a resort wear line of
pre-draped sarees incorporating different knitting techniques such as, macramé and crochet, inspired by Rococo art or “Late Baroque”. Rococo art was associated with grandeur, sensuous richness, drama, vitality, movement, tension and emotional exuberance. The collection represents a person who is a free soul, fun and happy go lucky.
Keeping the aspects of Rococo art in mind, the designer created a collection that is a combination of pastel and bright colours. The collection of pre-draped sarees is a modern twist to traditional sarees and perfect for events such as beach weddings and parties. The designer through her collection has curated a range of sarees incorporating different knitting techniques which are mostly found in western dresses and not popularly available in Indian wear. The colours used for the collection are a combination of pastel and bright colors. The thread used for macramé and crotchet work is pure cotton.
The handwork of macramé and crochet in this collection was done by the women of a NGO in Agra, UP, which works for women empowerment.
