“Chuttipani”, the makeup art form that accompanies Kathakali does not gain enough attention as much as the dance form. The make-up artist called “chuttikaran”, works with different media such as paint, paper and rice flour to carve out a recognisable visual identity and blow life into the character of the performer. Artist Ram Mohan is known for his “chuttipani”. The collection “KRITHAKAYA” takes inspiration from the work of this artist. The resort wear collection attempts to mould an otherwise fluid fabric like crepe into a semi-structured silhouette. Bright white dominates the collection while spectra yellow and green are employed to break monotony. The collection Krithakaya meaning body of the skin is presented by Mithra, Nita, Reshma and Sindhu, from February 2015 batch.
