Saṃhitā: A Tribute to Angel Chen
Nehal Narendra Zaveri, a student at JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Goa pursuing her Diploma in Fashion Design showcased her collection ‘Saṃhitā’, at JD Design Awards 2023. The fusion wear collection pays tribute to Angel Chen, a Chinese Designer.
Angel Chen, expresses her Chinese culture through a mix of Western aesthetics in her genderless designs and gives them a bold and contemporary style served as the inspiration for Nehal’s collection. She then wanted to include similar concepts, but with a twist, so she gave the clothing an Indo-Western look and exclusively used Indian designs and a colour palette.
Cotton, silk, georgette, organza, tissue, Lycra, tissue, satin, linen, and suiting material were the materials utilized to make the garments. This collection is in some ways sustainable because some of the foundation fabrics were Cotton, Silk, and Linen.
There were several colours used in the collection because of the many prints, but the most prevalent ones were yellow, red, orange, pink, gold, and black.
‘Saṃhitā’ is a Pulchritudinous Collection which exemplifies Indian Tradition.
“I was excited to showcase my collection, ‘Saṃhitā’ on a platform like JD Design Awards. It was a thrilling experience”
