SILK ROUTE

Samant Chauhan uses raw muga silk to create asymmetric gowns and tapered churidars

Samant Chauhan’s collection at India Fashion Week, The white canvas was a bridge between Middle Ages and now. The collection was beyond any compulsions and a time of overthrowing the status quo. He drew his inspiration from his childhood nostalgia when he would travel by railways. Assam’s muga silk was the USP of the night as he elegantly showcased the versatility and its beauty. The off-white vintage collection comprising of slit dresses, classy suits, tunics, overcoats, tapered churidars and long dresses that were touching the floor.

While magic eludes us and science informs us, as a designer, this confusion has become his muse. The quest, an inspiration and a thirst for beauty. He seeks to bridge the gap between knowledge and magic. “In the flowers that we have painted, I have created my own patterns. Because that is what renaissance made us do — create and create boldly. Add this was art nouveau or the idea of total art. I saw it everywhere from outside the Paris metro and on the buildings. It was a liquid style, the flowers melting into ivory backgrounds and it was the art of thankfulness. And then you ask what is magic and logic along with all the complexities of life against the simplicity of lines and muted colours of decorative arts. I liked the rebellion of the line and the art movement that dismissed the superiority of the liberal arts. Why does Paris look beautiful? Because it is art in totality,” shared Chauhan.

This was an ode to the blank canvas, to total art, to free art you can see from the streets and the self-actualisation and to all metaphors for life and light.
